Canada Day and Being Canadian In The Middle of Euro Cup 2016

I am a guest of France but on Canada Day when one government official came to say Happy Canada Day I reminded him of an unpleasant time in history mostly diplomatic which began with a phrase “Vivre le Québec libre!” said by their then President Charles de Gaulle in 1967.

Since then France has remained neutral on matters related to Quebec separating from the rest of Canada.
