Dave Ash des bleus poudre - québec independence explained to children
Dave Ash, Québec's Freedom Fighter imported from Texas, explains to a class of fourth-graders why and how Québec should become an independent country. Made a couple of years before the 1995 Québec Referendum. The part of Dave Ash is played by writer-comedian Ghislain Taschereau, an everlasting supporter of Québec's Freedom and Independance. The piece is somehow a response to Mordecai Richler's xenophobic theory according to which Québécois Independence advocators are nazi racists: Taschereau decided to make fun out of this ridiculous propaganda. It's like he's telling Richler: "You want nazi? I'll give you nazi." Radio artist François Pérusse performs the music as well as the schooler's voice.
