Yes. To go back to your larger issue about the whole question of language and minorities and so on, these are indeed sensitive areas, where you have groups that have come together for various reasons, sometimes because of political dominance at one point.
The only thing I can say about this is that the English-speaking community of Quebec is a very diverse group of people. Today, of course, they represent literally dozens of different groups made up of people whose first official language is English. That's how we describe ourselves, as English-speaking communities; we're not the people from Great Britain or wherever.
Many of us have been in Quebec for a long time. Believe it or not, many of us do not live in Westmount and have the kinds of privileges that sometimes get associated with everybody. Yes, some of us are, I'm sure, part of the 1% of the world, but most of us, I would suspect, are part of the 99%, to use the Occupy language that got popular last year.
So it's varied. We've had experiences, over the centuries now, on farms, in factories—not only in the head office of the factory but on the factory floor—and so on. We've had these kinds of experiences, and they have to be remembered and celebrated. I think that's an important thing.
It's important that our young people understand that as well. Very often today we have standardized textbooks. We have families that move from one place to another, for promotions and stuff like that, and we have teachers now who....
In the old days, teachers tended to be from their area. We have to actually talk about now and try to promote something called “community-based learning”, which our CLC partners do so well and which we are doing, to help them to do that, to try to give young people a sense of rootedness, of where they are. I mean, they're not just living in bedroom suburbs and their place is the mall; they actually live in a place, in a town, that has an interesting past, with people who have problems and situations that are remarkably similar to what they are going through or have gone through—although it would be a little different in those days.
It's just a really good thing. If we don't have that sense of identity of who we are, with some kind of rootedness, then we're just transients with our duffle bags, going from one place to the other.
So we need that. And that's why we're here.
