@contributor77 I don't know either of those guys, but in terms of French I would have considered myself fluent while I was in school in Quebec, but that was 7 or 8 years ago, and since then my fluency has definitely deteriorated. I'd consider myself just functional now.

Those people all align with the Trump movement.

There are a lot of French conservatives but they are heavily suppressed.

@contributor77 No ha, I don't have any issue with it. It's not my favorite, but the accent doesn't particularly bother me.
I have no issue with bilingualism and actually think it's a good thing to speak more than one language, my only issue is with the Quebec government's unfair treatment of anglos.

@RoamingMillennial Do you dislike the Quebec accent? (Acadian men mock it tbqh, we think it's gay)

Some anglophones still think it's unfair.

In my province we have bilinguism, although more like dualism, but we're like 33% of the population.

@contributor77 It would probably help, yeah

If Quebec abolishes it's language laws, will people stop hating us?

That was a wasted 12 minutes. The accent imitation is nowhere close.
