I am as Quebecois as Luongo, born in MTL of Italian decent, lived here all my life, have an Italian name (Joe Cole is a screen name, an homage to a friend)- and even though I am married to a pure laine francophone, speak and write french everyday, and I am still regularly considered an outsider.
Honestly, I could care less for those with that attitude, it is just ironic and somewhat opportunistic when someone is appropriated into a group because it is advantageous for the given task at hand.
You're taking my quote out of context. I wasn't implying anything except that the poster I was quoting was just having fun with the concept. An innocent comment and you make a mountain.
I should have known, since you're half WOP like me.
