I'm ready to become a French person amongst French people, and more than ever I have the love for my country deeply ingrained in my heart.
The French people need to have all the facts so they can choose. And I won't be running away from it or hiding from it.
We live in a world where people don't all have the same scruples, where all blows can be given, and where, in order to down somebody, all means can be used. Nothing will lead me astray from the path that I have chosen.
I understand that people might be poor if they don't have any work, but I don't accept that someone is poor if they've worked really hard.
If living in France bothers some people, they should feel free to leave the country.
What France knows deep down is that within this great Canadian people, there is a Quebec nation.
I love life too much to be bitter.
I want to wage war against illiteracy, poverty, unemployment, unfair competition, communitarianism, delinquency.
Canadians are friends and Quebecers are my family.
I do not see how proving my family, brotherly love for Quebec should be strengthened by defying Canada.
Francois Hollande is an intelligent man. I do not have a problem with him. The only thing is, he has never held office at the state level. Honestly, can you imagine Francois Hollande as president of France? Imagine it!
I am not a man of my party. I do not talk only to socialists and union leaders.
I fought for the values of responsibility, and I'm not a man who does not accept his responsibilities.
I hope that France - and all of Europe - we would take an initiative for the year 2012 to be the year of peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
You are the eternal France, I love you.
