As long as a final version of starfox 2 is dumped from it I am good, I will just play it on my mac.
I want one but am not too excited to fail at getting one.

This. All we need is someone to dump the memory of this thing, upload it to a possibly-illicit website for downloading such things, and those of us who wish to download are good.

It sucks that Nintendo purposely undersold the NES Mini so much, I almost thought the OP was gonna have a link to a news article with the same title.

Sorry, but Québec are humiliating themselves by overprotecting the French language, while they are in an English speaking country, talk a weird French, and... are not even France :P

Juju

Well, I'm a Quebecer and yes, they're overprotecting the French language. Yes, we've been English subjects since 1763, and everyone always feared they would assimilate us, or even worse, assimilating ourselves. There's the OQLF, the French language office, to make sure our dialect of French is still a thing, to encourage correct use of it and discourage loan words from English as the French population of Montréal is shrinking with all these immigrants.

So yeah, it's taken real seriously cause we're a small French population surrounded by a huge English population.

Sure, but it always seemed weird to m that they were even more serious about the language than the "original" French themselves. And to be honest, they take it often too far :P (Horrible movie titles I'm looking at you)

DJ Omnimaga

I think someone at the Office de la Langue Française had a power trip or bureaucracy has struck again

In any case they were probably gonna ship just 15 SNES Classic to Canada anyway

Why can Nintendo make more though? It doesn't seem fair that so little are being made...
I don't associate with associations

GalacticPirate

My guess is that it isn't supposed to be a mass-produces console, only a nice one-time product, like a special gift or something. Plus they have to produce more and more Switches.

Good news, both Toys R Us (just before going bankrupt) and Nintendo (through their RP in Québec) confirmed the SNES Classic is going to be available in Québec.

Yeah I was happy to see that. It was a stupid decision to not sell it in Quebec in the first place. I bet EB Games will have some if Toys R us goes under before the holiday shopping season.
