In once read an article saying how surprised people were to discover the level of fondness and affection the people of Quebec had for theree Britih monarch. I believ it was written about ten years ago though, lefties have made considerable progresss since then. More recently though I did hear that the leader of the Bloc Quebecois was impartial on the idea of monarchy, though whether the article was reffering to the current leader or not I am unsure I forget when the article was written.

Yes, it's true that all of the north of Quebec is native Crown land and that the separatists could not actually take that. They could only get the area along the St. Lawrence River in the south. However, the separatists claim the whole province and Labrador.
A recent poll puts the support for the Crown in Quebec at 30% - the lowest in Canada. In neighbouring Ontario, it is at 65%.
With only 10% English speaking, that means that 20% of French Quebecers (one fifth) support the Crown - and I have met a few. Don't forget, they have been under the British flag for over 200 years.
The separatists are currently out of power in the Province.
