The leader of the Bloc Québécois, Yves-François Blanchet, says he is “extremely worried” when he notes that Montreal and the rest of Quebec are “detaching themselves from each other”.

There are two Quebecs. Unfortunately, this is becoming true, he declared in an interview with The Canadian Press, repeating the words of a question asked in order to invite him to clarify his thoughts.< /p>

First there is Montreal, a Quebec, which is in the process of becoming a city that is at best bilingual, possibly multilingual, in a very passive way, and where the history, language, values, culture of the very generous host society is marginalized.

And there is a Quebec which looks at Montreal as if Montreal is becoming a place foreign.

Already, he judges, Montreal is no longer the second largest French-speaking city in the world. In the metropolis, we abandon a large part of who we are for the benefit of what should enrich it rather than integrate it, he said.
