So you are telling me that the people that eventually spoke english on my trips to Canada were imposters and didn't really know the language?

Your perception is governed by your nationality. Defend the homeland at all costs.

Quebec is comparable to Texas. They advertise themselves as a whole other country. I see Quebec's self importance and arrogance in much the same light.

As I said earlier, it depends on where you are and what you are doing.

I wouldn't know about Texas, but yes, they advertise themselves as a whole other country. They did try to seperate from Canada a few times...

In other news.

What would this have to do with me?

I work in the petrochemical industry.

If I worked for one of the defense contractors that are getting the business it might have some impact, but I don't.

Have a good weekend.

I do not understand because I estimate that it is over myself to do so. ??????

It is death controlled as well as tedius. ??????

When I have to look up some of those words, its bad.
My french is not good.
