This project is concerned with Quebec. The goal of the project was to study the relationship of Quebec with France, the mother of Quebec and one of the two founders of Canada. The study, to be done primarily through popular opinion about the relationship, was meant to teach about Quebec and France at the same time, the relationship with France given through Quebecois opinion. An attempt to understand francophone opinion of the mother country and to learn about France in the process, this project was concerned with France and its 'children' simultaneously. For the popular opinion, interviews were conducted with Quebecois citizens on the subject of France and their feelings about the relationship. The interviews aimed at the meaning of France to Quebec, the relationship of Quebec to France, and at the historical and contemporary ties Quebec has with France. The interviews also touched on Quebecois feelings towards France in reference to the contemporary 'struggle of races' in Canada.
