Quebec's Most Vocal Anglophobe Dies

Sorry I can't shed any tears over the death of Quebec's biggest Anglo hater, Pierre Falardeau.

A cruel and miserable soul, Pierre Falardeau was famous for urging Anglophone federalists to get out of Quebec.

He is also infamous for writing a particularly nasty article celebrating the death of noted Quebec federalist Claude Ryan.
"Finally, at last a good thing has happened! Claude Ryan has just died. Nothing left to do but to embalm him and close the coffin."

"Voilà enfin une bonne chose de faite! Claude Ryan vient de mourir. Ne reste plus qu'à l'embaumer et à fermer le couvercle."
Pierre Faladeau
Some other of his bon mots include a reference to David Suzuki; “a bearded little Jap.”

Here's a clip of him denigrating Anglos.



Of course the nationalists are offering platitudes and mark his passing with warm remembrances.
As for his racist comments, apologists chalk it up to sovereignist exuberance and compare him to a lovable old uncle who likes to use the word 'nigger.'

As Quebec television personality Guy A. Lepage put it ;
"In spite of his occasional slips, we all make them, he had all my respect"
"Malgré ses dérapes occasionnelles - on en fait tous - il avait tout mon respect"
Former Quebec Premier Bernard Landry said he was deeply saddened by his death.
"I met him often and each time I told him that we all thought the same things as him, but we expressed it quite differently. This made us laugh a lot! " - Bernard Landry
So the ex-Premier believes in the same anglophobic filth as Mr. Falardeau! Hmmm...

Mr. Falardeau may have hated Canada, but had no problem accepting money from Telefilm Canada to finance his projects. When asked about the contradiction, in a television interview, he answered sheepishly that he "had three mouths to feed."
The animator then reminded him that he had previously chastised Francophone artists for taking part in Canada Day Celebrations. "Don't they also have families to feed?"

"You might be right..." answered Falardeau.
A deep thinker, this one.....

As they say in French - Bon Débarras!, good riddance.

  1. Was it is funny in the association of François Morency and Pierre Farladeau. Morency was in fact bringing the stupidness of the character of Farladeau to extreme to show how stupid he is.

    And Farladeau was nearby laughing "Haha! An Anglo we planted"

  2. Je pense qu'il s'insurge plus contre l'impérialisme des anglais que contre ton origine ethnique. En tant que minorité qui s'est fait marché dessus par vos ancêtres et qui continue de subir les contrefaits du colonialisme 250 ans plus tard...je crois que ça fait du bien de voir que l'un des notres se tienne debout! Et je crois que c'est très catharcisant de voir l'un des notres user de toutes les tribunes possibles pour vous rappeller qu'on se laissera pas abâttre. Par contre, si tu t'intéresses vraiment à l'oeuvre de Falardeau, tu constateras qu'il est bien plus féroce à l'endroit des québécois eux-mêmes que des canadiens anglais car pour lui, nous sommes le plus grand obstacle à notre propre liberté!

    En tant que minorté colonisé, je crois qu'on peut bien se permettre de cracher sur les hauts tenants du fédéralisme, au point même d'applaudir leur mort. Par contre, l'inverse ne peut que vous nuir...Les opprimés auront toujours raison.

    Nous vaincrons!
