They have one person in custody, but I think that neighbourhood in northside Freddy is still in lockdown.........
Yeah, that might have been surreal.
If only "common sense" people had any.

That makes sense given where you live in Eastern Ontario (Alexandria, I believe), but I've always thought the Brayons of NW NB, while not identical, leaned more to the Québécois side in terms of temperament.

I also find this is true of Acadians in NE NB around Caraquet and Tracadie, and also of Franco-Ontarians in the Hawkesbury area. They're fairly similar to Québécois in spite of not being exactly the same.

But most Franco-Ontarians in places like Sudbury, Timmins, Cornwall, etc. and even Acadians in SE NB around Moncton are more like the "anglo mentality while speaking French" that you describe.
¿Por qué no te callas?
