Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

Some parents don't care enough about their child and don't decide to give them home lunches. Many children enjoy the food and don't think about the long-term effects of t...

1stLordofTheVenerability
BellumQuodPacis

Greetings to my opponent; Good luck and have fun! The premise of this debate is that my opponent will select the topic to be debated. I do have some stipulations: First of all, I wish that whatever the topic may be, it is relatively clean. Secondly, I would appreciate it if this debate were on a controversial or debateable topic; it cannot be particularly pitched or one-sided. Thirdly, it must be historical (dating before the 1980s). Fourthly, it cannot be about morality or justificatio...
