NP: 'Quebec separatists want to silence anglo acts'


"Anglophones have been among us for 250 years," [Minister of Culture Christine St-Pierre (PLQ)] told the Presse Canadienne. "They are Quebecers." It was that sentiment that inspired the organizers of L'Autre St-Jean to invite Lake of Stew and Bloodshot Bill, and it would be wrong if an intolerant few spoiled the party. "The organizers reflect the reality, they reflect the climate here in Quebec, and that's a climate of tolerance," [Lake of Stew band member Richard Rigby] said. "We might speak different languages, but culturally we're the same."
Except, we anglophones don't use violence as a form of political pressure.
