Pre-1914

Canadian Confederation formed in 1867, but Quebec became independent of Canada in 1909. Having already enjoyed a great deal of autonomy since 1870, Canada and Quebec and the were granted dominion status in 1931 and 1909. The provinces of Canada gathered themselves in a federation of equals, sworn to see off any threat posed by the USA.

The Anti-Serbia War (1914-1918)

Québec remained neutral.

The inter-war years

The Great Depression (1929-1940)

The economy declined sharply for 8 years untill protectionist measures were brought in until the economy was back in order.

The Anti-Hitlerian War (1939-1946)

Québec joined the war on the French side after Germany invaded France in 1940.

Cold War

Québec, which was a Western allie, faced an attempted communist coup in 1970 by thugs from the Front de libération du Québec. National forces were overwhelmed and lost control of the situation, so they called in New England and Canadian forces, who did ruthlessly and horrifically crush the rebels. The riotous Université de Montréal was bombed by the New England Marine Corps. Québec was one of the western allies

A law was passed in 1997 to promote the Cree language throughout primary and secondary schools the Cree parts of the nation.

Corrupted New England Catholic priests, Televangelists from the nation, Bible Belt Christian fundamentalists and cultists who survived the post-Wako incident purge have gathered in some Midwestern locations. They have forcibly set up a few sealed communities of about ~500 to 900 or so. They are misogynistic, racist to Afro-Americans, anti-Semitic, anti-Rondova, anti-abortion, homophobic, anti-disabled, hate filled, xenophobic, anti-communist to a point that would distress even 1950s McCarthyists and hyper-repressive.
