Go to France if you want to know more about what or who is French.
Maybe, the question itself is too much of a caricature.
Mais non, les francais ne se moquent pas vraiment de l'accent canadien, ils l'adorent tellement qu'ils en meurent de jalousie.

Declared every person born on foreign land of parents at least one of whom is French who had also been born on foreign land to be, subject to certain conditions of proof, a French national.
The matter was placed before the Council of the League of Nations. France there argued that the dispute arose out of a matter solely within its domestic jurisdiction and the Council requested an advisory opinion of the Permanent Court of International Justice on the preliminary question whether the dispute by international law solely a matter of domestic jurisdiction. Persons who were the descendants of France nationals and therefore, under the French law, themselves French national.
The question whether a certain matter is or is not solely within the jurisdiction of a country is an essentially relative question; it depends upon the development of international relations. Thus, in the present state of international law, questions of nationality are, in the opinion of the Court, in principle within this reserved domain. For the purpose of the present opinion, it is enough to observe that it may well happen that, in a matter which, like that of nationality, it's not, in principle, regulated by international law, the right of a country to use its discretion is nevertheless restricted by obligations which it may have undertaken towards other countries.
In such a case, jurisdiction which, in principle, belongs solely to that country, is limited by rules of international law. The Court held that the nationality decrees had to be considered in the light of a number of international agreements invoked by France; for that reason, it is for each country to determine under its own law who are its nationals. This law shall be recognised by other countries in so far as it is consistent with international conventions, international custom, and the principles of law generally recognised with regard to nationality. Any question as to whether a person possesses the nationality of a particular country shall be determined in accordance with the law of that country. Subject to the provisions of the present Convention, a person having two nationalities may be regarded as its national by each of the countries whose nationality he or she possesses, if that country confers its nationality or not. It is entirely to the discretion of France to determine who should be a national of France and who should not.

I thought that French culture and humanism in its golden age aspired to be universal anyway .
We are all first and foremost human beings.We all belong to the same planet.
Tsunamis do not stop at national borders,nor do diseases, nor hunger, nor deforestation,nor the internet. .The issues of the day can only be addressed through a global effort.
It is ironic that people living in NY and writing in English are still debating what makes a French French.
