How are the relations between French people and French-Canadian people? It depends. Between both people there exists a significant portion of the population who think the other side is a friendly people. In France, people who dislike French-Canadians will often blame them for being uneducated, citing the Quebec “joual” accent/dialect, and many people in Quebec will find French people racist towards non-white people, sexist or macho in their approach towards women for example. But overall both people have a respect for each other. Very often French people will call French-Canadians their “cousins”.
