This enraged French Canadians and in Montreal violence and rioting took place. Although the war ended only a few months later, for years to come a wedge would be put between the French and English Canadians. Later on in 1968 the Parti Quebecois was formed by Rene Levesque, which would highlight the difference in views between French and English Candians. The main goal of the PQ was to make Quebec a soveirgn nation as well as protection of the French language in Canada. Under Rene Levesques provincial government bill 101 was passed. This would set the official language of Quebec as French, meaning Canadian made products would be written in French, and government processes as well as businesses had the right to be carried out in French.
This goes to show the strong nationalistic pride of French Canadians as well as the difference in views between French and English Canadians. Also in the 1960s, a group called the Front de libration du Qubec (FLQ) was formed. The FLQ was a violence group of seperist French Canadian Quebeckers. The FLQ carried out several violent attacks on English Canadians including several bombings and hold ups. Bombs began appearing in English speaking districts in Quebec and several people had already been killed. In 1970, members of the FLQ kidnapped James Cross and were demanding the release of imprisoned FLQ members.
They were also arguing that in Quebec, although there was an English minority, the English held all the positions of power. French Canadians have arguably been mistreated in terms of being part of Canada. However, they have shown their dissatisfaction through rioting the conscription crisis, creating the PQ and forming the FLQ. This has all led up to a disagreement and difference between English and French Canada, which will always be present.
