Most of the news from Quebec is so interesting. I find that they purposely made sure their broadcasts are significantly different from the look and feel of other Canadian broadcasts. Even broadcasts on CBC look and feel completely different. Its almost as if they are saying, we arent Canadian we are French. Because they do resemble broadcasts seen on French television and they this have become more and more pronounced over the years. They have completely diverged from any thing slightly resembling anything Canadian. But if you seen English language broadcasts on CTV, City, and Global Montreal they look like "normal" (in their own presentation styles) Canadian broadcasts. I've always found that slightly arrogant about Quebec news broadcasts.
I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.

Why would you find it arrogant? The reason the French language broadcasts are very French in style is because they are French language broadcasts! It’s not complicated. English language channels and news shows in Canada tend to be influenced by America and other Anglophone nations. If you look at French speaking African and Caribbean nations, they adopt a very similar style to Metropolitan France. There’s really nothing arrogant about set design and style being influenced by others!

Lol. And you have a simplistic viewpoint of Canadian bilingualism. They dont even speak the same French. Quebec is not a colony of France and hasnt been for a very very long time. The US speaks English and there is a distinct culture there from the UK. So a common language does not necessarily mean a common culture. North America is bit more complex than most Europeans imagine. So I completely disagree. But everyone is entitled to their view or opinion. Discuss.

Quote:
Mathieu Lalancette, a Quebecer who made “French PQ,” a documentary about the French in Quebec, noted many French were shocked to discover that a common language doesn’t mean a common culture.

“We Quebecers know we are very different from the French but many French who come here think they are taking the train and going to the French countryside,” he said.

While Quebecers have long looked to Enlightenment France for inspiration, Gérard Bouchard, an eminent historian and sociologist with the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi, said that as they “gained a stronger sense of identity in the 1960s, they increasingly looked to North America — not France — for self-definition.”

What makes the Quebecois and other French Canadians different from other Americans -- North, Central, and South -- is that they are a relatively small island of Francophones on an otherwise Anglophone/Hispanophone continent. This situation of relative isolation makes them significantly less secure about the survival of their culture and language -- and far more receptive of cultural influences from France, a large, well-established cultural power who shares their language and some of their heritage. This is something we can see in everything from the media to cuisine -- and it tends to be more pronounced among educated people, who are actively shaping French Canadian cultural preferences and policies. Ordinary people, as your examples suggest, are less affected by this trend, but they are also less culturally influential.

Speaking of which, here's Medi 1 in Morocco with a distinctly "French" look:

Those arrogant Morrocans, eh?! 😂 By the way, for the record, I am a dual citizen of Canada and the UK, and was actually raised in a bilingual household, so Mouseboy, I do understand these things. I’m also well aware (as a speaker of Québécois French) that the language is ‘different’. It’s more of a dialectical difference. I have friends in France who fully understand me and just think it’s funny. Although I probably shouldn’t declare that I have friends in France as, according to you, my culture is defined by the Yanks. I’m off for a hot dog, some weak beer and squeezy cheese, or something like that 😂. Anyway, enough of this. We can all agree to disagree and get on with things. My view in general of Québécois television is that TV news design is always a bit of pale attempt at French style. The TV dramas are good though!
