Quebec Politics: 20th Century - Referendums, Language Laws

Quebec Politics: 20th Century - Referendums, Language Laws Language politics in the Canadian province of Quebec have been a contentious issue for centuries, since Britain won the territory from France at the Plains of Abraham. Quebec eventually became one of Canada’s founding provinces, but it remained a bastion for the French language in North America. However, during the twentieth century, years of French nationalism finally came to a head and decades of tumult began that included the Quiet Revolution, language laws, referendums on Quebec separation and much more. Even today, the language debate in Quebec remains a political minefield that surfaces during every election campaign. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about language politics in Quebec.
