Indeed.  But note that the PQ isn't trying to expel you; they're even
in favor of preserving some entrenched anglophone rights.  They just
want you to speak French, eat poutine, and swear "Tabarnac!"  Like the
SNP and Plaid Cymru, they are a civic nationalist party.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
