 Québec is located on continent of North America.  Montréal is the capital of Québec with the contiguous United States share its border along the 49th parallel along the St. Lawrence River. Québec also has a sandwich border with Canada.

Québec was (until 2013) a province of Canada. Quietly discussing cessesion, a new currency was printed in addition to new signage and other related business. With said actions in place, the Province of Québec filed for cessesion in Canadian Parliament on 1 July 2013. After deliberations, Québec won its independence from Canada on 1 December and officially was recognized by Canada on 8 January 2014. All other countries, however, consider the 1 December 2013 date as the official date of Québecois independence.



History

Pre-1775

Christopher Columbus' discovery of the modern day Bahamian island of San Salvador in October 1492 was followed by dozens of expeditions over the next hundred and twenty-five years to the New World, or America, as named after the Italian mapmaker Amerigo Vespucci in 1507. John Cabot (Giovanni Caboto) is credited with the discovery of continental North America in June 1497, approximately five-hundred years ago. Columbus himself would make another three voyages to the modern-day Caribbean before his death in 1506. In April 1513, Juan Ponce de León (sailing for Ferdinand II of Aragon) landed in modern day Florida, most likely at St. Augustine, while in 1624, Giovanni da Verrazzano (sailing for Francis I of France) explored the Atlantic coast of the Carolinas.

In 1756, the French and Indian War erupted as the result of clashing British and French colonial interests in North America, and as the overseas extension of Europe's Seven Year's War. In 1763, Quebec fell to British troops and the French garrisons of North America surrendered, ending the war and giving Britain control of all France's North American territory, in addition to French cession of the Louisiana Territory to the Spanish for the next forty years.

Modern Times

Independence from Canada

Prior to its independence, Québec was quitly threatening to secede after several years of turmoil. Within the past decade, despite the recent welcome of the Montréal Impact to Major League Soccer, the city of Montréal lost its professional baseball team to another capital (Washington D.C.) and their hockey team had been removed of it's most recent Stanley Cup two decades ago before the move to the Bell Centre. Outside of sport, there was a territorial dispute for the rights to the Privince of Labrador and reported ethnic cleansing attemps of Métis in Western Québec that would violate protions of the Royal Report on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.

Fed up with their treatment since the end of Jean Crétien's ministry, things seemd to quickly turn sour in Canadian Parliament. While Stephen Harper had complied with the province, it was not enough to keep the waters stagnant. There were also financial issues amongst both taxes and provincial budget. The National Assembly of Québec met on December 12, 2007 to deliberate cesession. And successfully and peacefully declared independence on the December 19.
