On October 30, 1995, a great man summed up the feelings rapidly spreading within the West about the toxic political influence of mass immigration. In the era of Brexit, we now take the geographic region of choice, prefix it, and add the "exit" suffix. Much of this modern sanity is owed to Jacques Parizeau, who spoke the unspeakable and helped reopen the door to a rational discussion regarding the concerns surrounding mass immigration.
At the time, Parizeau was the premier of Quebec, and he launched a referendum to determine if residents of his province wanted to declare national sovereignty and become an independent country. Sadly, the pro-independence side lost, just 49.42% to 50.58%. Voter turnout was an astonishing 94%.
After the results came in, and it was clear the sovereignists had lost by the narrowest of margins, Parizeau blamed the loss on "l'argent et le vote ethnique," which translates to money and the ethnic vote.
The "vote ethnique" was the real cause, and the ethnic vote has now, unfortunately, forever doomed the Quebecois culture and their desires for an independent state. The sovereignists lost by just 54,000 votes. In 1995, the Canadian federal government – who rabidly opposed the independence movement – ordered its Citizenship Court judges from across the country to move into Quebec and immediately award full citizenship rights to immigrants in order to turn the tide against separation. It worked. During the months leading up to the vote, 44,000 immigrants were given citizenship and allowed – read: encouraged – to vote against independence. This alone, coupled with known "voting irregularities," ended any hope at the time of what could have been termed Quebexit.
Fast-forward more than two decades, and Quebexit has an immigrant nail in its coffin. The province had 975,000 foreign-born individuals as of 2011, or more than 12% of its total population, and this number is growing as it continues to accept tens of thousands of new migrants each year while having a low birth rate among its old-stock population. These immigrants will effectively entirely vote against sovereignty, presenting an insurmountable hurdle for the sovereignists.
Of course, that was always the plan for the globalists and multiculturalists. Saturate a society with immigrants, beating down opposition with accusations of xenophobia, racism, etc., and change the demographics so radically that the native demographic becomes a minority. Quebec's Parti Québécois walked right into this trap in the decades before the 1995 referendum. The party was largely neutered, with a few exceptions – such as Parizeau, against any critical thought about the immigrant invasion underway that would preclude ever reaching their goals of independence.
Old-stock Canadians throughout the nation should have been more indignant of being continually lectured to by immigrant media commentators from quasi-authoritarian states, whether they came by way of Singapore or the former communist states of eastern Europe.
The U.K. narrowly avoided Quebec's ethnic disaster. Had Britain waited perhaps two or three more years, the increased Muslim population alone would almost assuredly have prevented a successful Brexit vote. The Netherlands, France, Spain, and others are in the same boat, having approximately the same percentage of immigrants as the U.K. If they manage to secure their "exits," it will be by luck alone, and the window of opportunity is narrowing rapidly, if it hasn't already passed.
