You may be right about the first point, that the protectionist stance on the language is pretty bad but the rest of your post is pretty much BS. Some people from France don't even understand each others and of course, there are people with really strong, weird accents (think of the movie snatch) but these are exceptions and if you can't spend the efforts to figure out what someone with an accent that is a little different is saying, you are the one with the problem... In the recent years, there have been problems with people abusing the rights to freedom of religion in Quebec. We have seen kids bringing (religious) knives to primary school, people refusing to interact with women in government offices (for religious reasons), veiled women refusing to remove their veils for authentication and lots of other craps all of which triggered discussions on what should be acceptable and what shouldn't. Because of that, there have been discussions to ban all religious symbols from the government offices. There has also been discussions to remove the cross which is shown in the national assembly. Let's not forget that until about 40 years ago, the catholic church always had a lot of power in Quebec so it is still really important for some of the older people. The only reason you actually got to write something that stupid is because there is a lot of open minded people in Quebec who wonder if they should actually be able to do so and where should the line be drawn concerning cultural rights and since the bill for most of the accomodations made for them is filled by the tax payers.
