    you may dont know, but here in quebec, habs means habitant, and for us, an "habitant" is an insult, similar to your redneck insult, you know, no education, two teeth in the mouth (lucky ones have three)
    so please, stop...

    basically, "habitant" is the equivalent of redneck here.

    Is redneck an insult, it is used as a catch all term for country dweller of the American (and possibly Canadian) persuasion here? This is the whole oriental thing all over again isn't it (not an insult, not an epithet, a perfectly valid thing to call someone in UK English)?

    That said I have not seen anybody called a hab around here. Is this heading something off at the pass or just some petits Francais actions?
