    Quebec Separation Quebec has always been trying to maintain it s cultural identity. The path that led to separatism is long and winding one.

    The question of whether Quebec will secede from Canada to become an independent nation has been a hot topic in the country for several years now.

In fact, there are only two students in the class of twenty-eight who are from Europe, one Italian and one Polish. Another obvious difference between Mrs. Hamma and most of her students is gender. When she is calling on the stud...
