They are. Many need some kind of collective movement to identify with, especially if their invidual outcomes haven't gone as planned. Up until 2 generations ago, Catholicism served this purpose in Quebec, along with the Habs to a lesser extent.

As the Church's influence was on the wane, secessionism and union-based socialism came to the fore.

Now that these options are also on the downslope, for politics and global economics-related reasons, there isn't much of a collective movement left in Quebec, except for the Canadiens.

What else is there really?
