québécois is absolutely not some broken version of french, it’s extremely insulting when french people say that even as a joke. we could just as well call french french broken québécois, but we don’t, probably because we quebecers have internalized some negativity about our language and somehow, whether it’s consciously or subconsciously, see french french as default — the superior, “standard” version of our own language.
one argument i’ve seen an unacceptable number of times is that québécois is a “broken” language because québécois uses a fair number of unnecessary anglicisms. now, first of all, that’s extremely hypocritical because french french is itself full of loanwords from english. example off the top of my head: that thing that we call a “stationnement” in quebec, they call it a “parking.” and yet there’s this double standard in that whatever anglicisms are used in france are ok because french french is “standard,” but as soon as a quebecer uses an anglicism, it’s because our french is broken. funny how that works.
to answer your question of is québécois the same language as french, this is where opinions diverge. i don’t know. maybe it would be beneficial to start treating them as different languages simply because of the idea that québécois is some inferior, bastardized version of french instead of a valid dialect. however, they are mutually intelligible (obviously) and i don’t know how much sense it would make to treat them as separate. (on the other hand, fun fact! swedish and norwegian are considered different languages, but are close enough that there’s been debate over whether they should be considered dialects of a single language, while cantonese and mandarin are often considered dialects of a single language while not being mutually intelligible!) personally i wouldn’t mind having québécois be treated as independent of french, but i can’t give anything close to a professional opinion on whether that’s reasonable or practical.

I was sitting on my friends bed with her when she came out as gay
and I was looking through a Chinese food pamphlet
so I put it down, looked at her and said “I was going to suggest ordering food but I see now you’d prefer to eat out”
and I don’t think she’s ever really forgave me
