The kindness canadian has limits

This is a fact, Canadians are peaceful. The proof, they have invented the Blue Helmets. But they are not always nice to each other...

Dear readers, dear readers, it is time to attach your tuque with the pin! First of all, because the winter has already landed in Canada, since mid-November, with a beautiful snow storm in the East. Then, because the re-election on October 21, last of Justin Trudeau to the position of Prime minister should not make any illusion: the country is increasingly torn between the east and the west, between the major cities and rural areas, between Quebec and the other provinces. And the arrival in force of quebec ministers in the new cabinet Trudeau (way to thank the Beautiful province which has contributed largely to the re-election of the Prime minister) has probably put a little oil on the fire...

evidenced By the pass of firearms this week between the Quebec and Manitoba. With his law 21 on secularism in Quebec has caused, at best misunderstanding, at worst the ire of the other canadian provinces. The topic has been widely debated during the last election campaign : should he commit to attack in front of a federal court this provincial law that prohibits officials in a position of authority (police officers, judges, prison guards, but also teachers) the wearing of religious signs?

The government of manitoba has to pay for it in the media in the quebec pages of pub titled: "21 reasons to feel at home in Manitoba." A direct allusion to the new law in québec and extending a hand to the populations of origin for all immigrants who feel discriminated against by this text. The pub for the Manitoba drives the point home: "In Manitoba's diversity is respected and valued". The campaign has aroused the ire of the Prime minister of quebec, François Legault. It was beautiful game to replicate that the manitoba government would do better to invest in services in French to its francophone minority.

The way in which public services are provided (or not) to francophones in the English-speaking provinces is the subject of recurrent debates in Canada. A year ago, it has seen the Franco-Ontarians protest vigorously against the budget cuts imposed by the conservative Prime minister of the province to the local structures in French. Doug Ford particularly wanted to remove the French language services Commissioner, responsible for protecting the language rights of the minority, and bury the project of the university of Ontario French. It must be said that nearly a half-million people are of French mother tongue in Ontario.

In total, the francophones outside Quebec represent a million people. But these do not always obtain federal government services in French, what their guarantees theoretically the 1969 law on official languages. And this has led Justin Trudeau to promise a reform of the law in 2020.

The languages are not the only reason for tension within the very pacific canadian confederation. The oil is another, who violently objected Alberta, whose economy is based entirely on the black gold, in Québec, to a point in the fight against climate change, and therefore fossil fuels. Easy, riposteront the non-Québécois, as in the Belle province the bulk of the electricity is of hydraulic origin. Albertans accuse regularly Quebecers to take advantage of oil revenues through the federal mechanism of equalisation (the provinces most wealthy give to the provinces the less wealthy) to finance generous social programs while horrifying the environmental consequences of the exploitation of the oil sands. "Alberta has made ill-advised choices. This is the case for decades. Hope for a long-term financial stability based on oil prices historically high, was a battle lost in advance." replied the leader of the Parti québécois in an open letter published this week in the press of alberta.

And if we breathed one air in Canada ? The optimism of the canadian strain on The immigration, next victim of the virus in Canada?

Like what the Canadians are not always nice, especially them. Which is to say in September the magazine francophone News that the greatest challenge for the elected Prime minister on October 21 at the head of the country would be... reconcile the Canadians !
