Saturday (or rather Friday) Photo: Fête nationale and Brexit
Not all of us are Québécois de souche (although grandson Thomas Édouard has ancestors who arrived in the middle of the 17th century from France), but Lee and I chose to live here and the grandkids and their parents were born here or (in the case of Jeanne's father) also chose Quebec.
This reflection comes as the British are trying to come to grips with what they did on Thursday. People, it seems, didn't really believe that Brexit would pass. Can't understand how people could vote to leave without considering the implications. But apparently that's what happened in many cases.
Now, there may be good arguments for leaving the European Union, but just because you're angry is not one....
