This would be useless. The French language is regulated by the Académie Française. The Office québécois de la langue française reflects pretty much the same rules of the Académie. The spelling is the same, only the pronunciation is different. Thus Québécois is a dialect of French. Moreover, it is mostly a different evolution from old, pre-Revolution royal French. All Québécois understand standard French, especially in written form. There is thus no need for another encyclopedia project. It would be a waste of resources. fr:User:Bidouleroux 04:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC) <--Un québécois!

I don’t recall that anyone on the French-language Wikipedia even emitted the idea of a separate Canadian French Wikipedia. —Cépey 18:34, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

See also fr:Débat sur la norme du français québécois. Note also that Quebec French is not the only variety of French in Canada : see en:template:French dialects by continent (acadien, français de Terre-Neuve, etc...). In my opinion, a Quebec French Wikipedia is not more urgent than an American English Wikipedia. A Cajun Wikipedia might make sense though, if you can find a community to maintain it.

Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:06, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Language conversion system

Please, take a look at the talk about a Language conversion system mentioned on wikitech list. The use of that system is more acceptable than the creation of a new wiki just because of variants of some language... 12:20, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
