The "Poutine Curtain"

Heard a great term on CBC radio yesterday, did a google search and nothing game up, so I thought I would add it to the English vernacular

THE POUTINE CURTAIN: Refers to the dampening effect that the cultural and language differences between Quebec and the rest of the country has on the transfer of knowledge and discovery from Quebec to other parts of Canada.

I can't and won't take credit for the term as I picked it up off a CBC radio show about how some scientists discovered Greenland sharks near Baie-Comeau, Quebec. The speaker was saying how it took a while for him to find out about the discovery due to the POUTINE CURTAIN.
