Scientific Paper Predicts Ethnic French Canadians will Become a Minority in 2042Ricardo Duchesne
A newly-released statistical study by Charles Gaudreault published in a peer-reviewed journal has concluded that the ethnic French Canadians will become a minority by the year 2042 in their Québec homeland. The title does not sound alarming: “The impact of immigration on local ethnic groups’ demographic representativeness: The case study of ethnic French Canadians in Québec.”
But don’t let the complex statistical technicalities of the study and its cold neutrality distract you from the momentous political and cultural implications of its conclusion. The ethnic French Canadians, the major ethnic group responsible for laying the foundations of the Canadian nation during its first two centuries, is set to relinquish its sovereignty over its Québec homeland.
No one in the mainstream media will say a word about it. They want you to think that an ideological program initiated from above a few decades ago is just the natural progression of a culture that was always about “diversity born in immigration.” This is a lie promoted by academics, journalists, politicians, and bankers to justify the ethnocide of Euro-Canadians.
The reality is that from the time of Samuel de Champlain’s settlement in Québec in 1608 up until the conquest in 1763, immigration contributed only one-seventh to the total population growth of New France. The immigrants that came were not diverse. After the conquest, Québec received American-British loyalists, and during the 1800s immigrants arrived from the United Kingdom and Ireland, but non-European immigration was almost non-existent. The population continued to increase at an accelerating rate, from 70,000 in 1763 to 890,000 in 1851, mostly due to the continuing high fertility rate of the Québecois. From the 1660s through the 1800s, women had 5.6 surviving children.
The French-Canadian fertility was high enough that ethnic French Canadians still made up 79% of the Québec population, according to the 1970 census. The remaining 21% were: descendants from the British Isles (10.6%), other Europeans (6.7%), Asians (0.7%) Indians and Eskimos (0.6%), and others and unknown (2.4%).
The ethnic French Canadians are a unique people newly-born in the cold soils of Québec in conditions of immense hardship, through their own hard labor and procreation. By 1950, the Québec population reached 4 million — with next to zero immigration. The post-1960/70s high levels of immigration were an abrupt break with Québec’s history.
The insane levels of immigration we have been witnessing in the last three decades are part of a concerted effort to destroy the national identity of the Québecois and transform the province of Québec into a place of rootless, race-mixed humans with no loyalties to anyone other than to generic global corporations.
The immigration-induced demographic transformation our globalist elites have imposed upon Québec is pure ethnocide. The Québecois do not exist as a people anywhere else on the planet. Once their homeland is taken over by foreigners, they will cease to be a people. Meanwhile, the national cultures of the immigrants arriving today, the majority of whom are from Africa, will continue to thrive.
Some Key Scientific Projections by Charles Gaudreault
They say the great replacement is a “conspiracy theory.” The scientific evidence, however, decisively supports our claims. Charles Gaudreault’s paper is thoroughly backed by copious amounts of data. Here are some key findings stated in almost the same words used by his paper:
- The results demonstrate that the province of Québec is projected to reach “majority‐minority” status before the middle of the current century if immigration remains at its current level. It was found that from 1971 to 2014, the Ethnic French Canadian (EFC) share of the population fell from 79% to 64.5% of Québec’s population. Projections predict that the EFC share will decline to 50% of Québec’s population by 2042 and to 45% by 2050.
- The decline of the EFC majority will have major political, societal, and philosophical implications. On the political level, one may wonder what the effect will be on support for Québec’s independence? In 1995, Québecers held a referendum to separate Québec from Canada, which resulted in a 49.4% vote for independence. 60% of francophones supported independence while 95% of non‐francophones opposed it. The Parti Québécois may find it difficult to win votes by promoting independence in the near future. Its traditional opponent, the Parti Liberal, has been using independence as a scarecrow to gain votes from opponents to Québec independence.
- Regarding the language question, one may wonder how the French Canadian culture and language can be effectively transmitted to newcomers as the EFC share falls. As of 2011, 86.8% of Québec’s immigrants reside in the Montreal metropolitan census region, similar to Canada as a whole, where 90.9% of all immigrants live in census metropolitan areas. At the same time, French Canadians are leaving the city for the suburbs. Thus, in the long run, French Canadian culture in Montreal will have to be transmitted from older generations of immigrants and their descendants to freshly-arrived immigrants. One may ask if this is feasible. What amount of effort must be made to preserve the French language? Do Québecers, who are becoming more and more multicultural and multiethnic, want to preserve a French Canadian identity and language, or do they accept the possibility that in the long run they might assimilate into the English language and into Anglo‐American culture, such as the Cajuns of Louisiana?
- The top countries amongst Québec immigrants between 2011 and 2016 were France (9.3%), Haiti (7.8%), Algeria (7.6%), Morocco (6.3%), and China (5.0%). As such, the ethnic composition of Québec’s recent immigrants diverges significantly from the rest of Canada: Between 2011 and 2016, Asia provided 61.8% of Canada’s immigrants, while Africa provided 34.5% of Québec’s.
- According to an official projection, by 2036 between 44.2% and 49.7% of Canadians will be first‐generation and second‐generation immigrants, and between 82.2% and 84.6% of these first‐ or second‐generation immigrants will be of non‐European origin.
