Jean-François Lisée hits a brick wall
MONTREAL - We’re pathetic, we English-speaking Quebecers. And after four months of listening to our whimpering, our nanny minister is showing signs of impatience with us.

“Stop doubting. Stop asking permission to be Quebecers. Stop thinking that you are defined in the eyes of the other.
“You are Quebecers. Get over it.”
