    Why Did French (Mostly) Disappear in Louisiana, But Not Quebec

    Louisiana and Quebec both started off as French colonies with a substantial number of French-speaking settlers. Both came under the rule of English-speaking powers (Quebec became British in 1763 and Louisiana became American in 1803). They both exist in a North American economy in which the...

    Fate of Canada if Quebec became Independent

    What would happen to Canada if Quebec became independent? Would Canada continue on despite being broken in half or would it break into smaller pieces? Or would some or all of it unify with America?

    Why did the Americans fail so badly invading Quebec?

    Expecting victory, the Americans lost out. Why? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_Quebec_(1775)

    Irish home rule and parallels with Quebec

    Being one-half Irish descent and one-half French-Canadian, the bitterness of the British-Irish relationship in the 19th century holds some fascination to me, historically. In a simplistic sense, one can see that the position of Ireland in the United Kingdom of the 19th century as akin to that...

    Wolfe Died Here Victorious

    So reads the stone in the Plains battlefield park. As another September 13th rolls around, I still wonder: Did Wolfe really see an opportunity at the Anse au Foulon, or was the escalade and battle that resulted really just a glorious suicide? His last letters are rife with defeatism. His...

    the Quebecois, the Afrikaners, and national survival surrounded by their own kind

    If Quebec/New France was captured and taken over by the British in 1759-63 as in real life but it has been surrounded by other French-speaking polities rather than English-speaking ones down to this day, would the French-Canadians have been as obsessed with national survival as in real...

    Quebec Charter of Values. For or against it?

    Do you think that the ban on religious garments in public sector jobs is reasonable or discriminatory. I personally think that banning of religious garments will offend a lot of people and that the idea shouldn't be passed on. But banning the wearing of burkas in jobs seems a good idea since...

    For or against for the independence of Quebec

    In 1995 Quebec almost got independece from Canada but a few votes made it stay to Canada. I say yes due to the fact that it can run independently and it is a nice part of Canada. People are so ergant to get independence that some people refuse to speak English.

    Quebec Joins the United States

    While reading through one of my old threads a member stated that the US tried to get Quebec to join the US. If America had succeeded in acquiring Quebec what do you all think would have been the immediate and long term effects of an acquisition of Quebec by the US? How would the Quebecois have...

    hi from Quebec province

    Hi there! I'm from Montreal, and I'm a big history and geography buff; I like alternate history a lot as well. Also, I've made a website on what if the British had been more successful in their invasions of Buenos Aires in 1806-07 - Argentina and Uruguay would be as well-off as North America...
