I Am Quebecois!

Quebecois! Posted by Hello
I've had some requests for a Quebec version of the I AM rant, so here goes:

“I’m not a lumberjacques or a courrier du bois.
And I don’t live in a log cabin or eat pea soup or own a Jetta.
And I don’t know Pierre, Francoise or Marie from Quebec, although I am certain they smoke and drink wine.
I have a Premier, not a Prime Minister; I speak English and French, but only French to the English; and I pronounce it “a peu pres presque sur le point de ca et la plus ou moins autour de vers” not “about” or “a boot”.
I can proudly wear my “fleur de lis” on my license plate when I drive to the depanneur, I believe in peace keeping-I will keep the peace if you give me what I want; diversity, not assimilation (except for those pesky Quebec Anglos!); and that poutine is a truly proud and noble food.
A toque is a toque, a chesterfield is a canape, and it is pronounced “Quebecois”, not “Quebecker” or “Qwibecker”.
Quebec is the largest francophone land mass, the first nation of real hockey, and the best part of North America!
My name is Joseph, and I am Quebecois.”

I am first a Canadian who just happens to live in B.C. I was born in Saskatchewan, but still, first a Canadian. If I travel and someone asks me where I come from it will be "Canada" first, last and always.
