Population

In the 2016 census, Quebec had a population of 8,164,361. In 2016, the North American Aboriginal population of Quebec numbered 359,430 people, being composed of 17,175 Inuit, 289,610 First Nations people, and 61,260 Métis.

Quebec accounts for a little under 23% of the Canadian population. Much of the population lives in urban areas along the St. Lawrence River. The most populated cities in Quebec are Montreal (1,762,976), Quebec City (538,738), Laval (431,208), and Gatineau (281,501).[3]

Quebec differs from other Canadian provinces in that French is the only official and preponderant language, while English predominates in the rest of Canada.[4] French is the common language, understood and spoken by 94.46% of the population. Quebec is the only Canadian province whose population is mainly Francophone; 6,102,210 people (78.1% of the population) recorded it as their sole native language in the 2011 Census, and 6,249,085 (80.0%) recorded that they spoke it most often at home.

Economy

Until the 1960s, the French Canadians, who form the overwhelming majority of the population of Quebec, were in the main confined to manual labour and low-level clerical jobs, while the upper echelons of society were occupied by the descendants of the British colonial elite.[5]

The economy of Quebec is diversified and post-industrial. Manufacturing and service sectors dominate the economy. If Quebec were a country, its economy would be ranked the 33rd largest in the world just behind Norway.[6] Quebec is also ranked the 21st largest in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The economy of Quebec represents 19.65% of the total GDP of Canada.[7]

Like most industrialized countries, the economy of Quebec is based mainly on the services sector. Quebec's economy has traditionally been fuelled by abundant natural resources, a well-developed infrastructure, and average productivity. The provincial GDP in 2010 was C$319,348 billion,[8] making Quebec the second largest economy in Canada.

History

The Duplessis Orphans

Full article: Stub class article Duplessis Orphans

In the 1950s, 20,000 children in child care were wrongly certified as mentally ill by the provincial government of Quebec and confined to psychiatric institutions in the 1940s and 1950s. The children were deliberately miscertified in order to misappropriate additional subsidies from the federal government.

Dead Premiers

Full article: Stub class article Quebec/Premier

Several of Premiers of Quebec died under suspicious circumstances in the 1950s and 1960s. The deaths might have had something to do with a deep state struggle over the strategic direction of the Quebecois economy and society, in a period of unbridled economic and social development.

The October Crisis of 1970

Full article: Stub class article October Crisis of 1970

The October Crisis refers to a chain of events that started in October 1970 when members of the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) kidnapped the provincial Deputy Premier Pierre Laporte and British diplomat James Cross from his Montreal residence. These events saw the Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau invoking the War Measures Act for the first time in Canadian history during peacetime.

Pierre Laporte, Vice-Premier of Quebec and Minister of Labour and Immigration, is kidnapped in front of his home. He was second in command of the Quebec Government, and as such, was, allegedly, afforded special police protection. There is a conspicuous similarity between the Laporte kidnapping and murder, and that of former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978.

The Crisis was led to a consolidation of power in the hands of the “new technocratic elite” that had taken control of the Quiet Revolution after the death of Quebec Premier Daniel Johnson in 1968.
