Exodus of French Canadians
Note: J-B Chartier was concerned that many Quebeckers were leaving Quebec to go to the United States. According to Chartier, what consequences would this immigration have on the province of Quebec?
“It is only by stopping the alarming number of people from leaving Quebec that the province will maintain its place and influence in other parts of Canada. It is by preventing this destructive flood of immigration that we can avoid the obvious problems it can bring. There are no two ways about it: Our nation is undergoing a critical challenge because of the abandonment of such a large number of our citizens.
