  • Montreal, Quebec, is the largest French-speaking city in the world outside of Paris. Until World War II, the English minority in Quebec controlled government and business and English was the official language. After WWII, a movement to make Quebec politically separate from the rest of Canada gathered force. Traces the history of the Separatist Movement through the lives and activities of Pauline Julien, a singer, and Gerald Godin, a poet, journalist and politician, two people passionately involved in the efforts to make Quebec independent.
