    That's good news, although not surprising to see in Quebec. Sharia isn't french nor does it promote french language and culture as is the long standing custom of french assimilation.

    I liked Fatima Houda-Pepin's comments and would hope that had some influence on the vote, but lets get real, there will be no "blending" of other cultural legal systems with respect to Quebec law.

    well in spite of assimilation french is still losing ground. year by year the percentage who use french at home or at work is dropping.

    I will have to take your word for it, but that's something I would never have suspected in a million years. I don't think I need to explain why do I?
