Canadians, we are all not on the same pay scale

For all of the government jobs available in Canada, I assumed that the pay would be all the same in every province.  This does not seem to be the case.

Quebec, a French speaking province, does not teach English in their public schools.  I find this odd since basic French is taught in some public elementary and most public high schools in BC.  Furthermore, French is a optional course that is offered from grade 9 to 12, and it can be taken in most high schools.

Therefore, why does Quebec dislike the English language so much?

Reading the article below, it seems that Quebec is purposely keeping their citizens French speaking to keep them from emigrating.

I have talked to some people from Quebec, and it seems that their pay for the same work is much lower than the rest of Canada.

Therefore, I question if that is another reason why some countries only teach their native language in schools.  To keep their people from emigrating to a better life.  After all, if every country in the world spoke the same language, people will have less difficulty trying to build a new life in a new country.
