Quebec is a 'Nation'

Flag of Quebec

So the Quebecois are a 'nation', at least our Parliament has said they are. Problem is that what most Canadians and (I believe members of Parliament believe) is that the term Quebecois refers to the 'People of Quebec'. I don't believe that Duceppe and the Block Quebecois hold the same definition - his definition is those people in Quebec that speak French, are catholic, white and come from historical families.
Now it's not that he hates others - he's not actively racist - just that he feels that 'his people' would be best served by separation from 'those people'. If we allow this, we let Canada break up into various ethnic groups, polish, French, German, native we would prove nothing to ourselves, or to the world.
