Airgead agus na vótaí eitneach

« C'est vrai qu'on a été battu, au fond, par quoi? Par l'argent puis des votes ethniques. »
— Jacques Parizeau, October 30, 1995

"Newfoundlanders should have voted no too, in 1948. If it had been left to the Irish here — I mean descendants of the Irish — we wouldn’t be in Canada today. In “Irish” districts like Ferryland, Placentia-St. Mary’s, St. John’s East and West, and Harbour Main-Bell Island, the vote went strongly against Confederation. It was mainly the Protestants who voted yes to join Canada."

— Patrick O'Flaherty, doing his part to broaden the demographic appeal of the Newfoundland crypto-separatist sentiment, June 28, 2008
