Acccordimg to the comments published in your news paper, we have to conclude that eastern Ontario is well on its’ way back to the cave whence we came.
The mindlessness, the selfishness, the overt bigotry and ignorance, all evidence that our society is regressing. The great concern for French visitors fromQuebec not being able to find their way around Ontario while Quebec politicians continue to plot their repression of the English language in the province. No concern for the English in Quebec being denied their freedom of speech, their inalienable English heritage, just concern for the French! Does it occur to the French that they are inciting distaste for all things French by their constant push for more French in the country.
When and how are French Canadians going to learn that if they insist on French language signs in Ontario, they had better be prepared to pay for them. Ontario is an English speaking province and French Canadians who do not want to become assimilated should move to Quebec as soon as possible. Quebec is the province which collects $8.6 billion dollars from English Canada so that Quebec can live as well as the rest ofCanada.
Where, when and how did the English population acquire the responsibility for maintaining the French language and culture. Do not call English speakers lazy because they do not learn French. French Canadians are so lazy, they cannot support themselves. The rest of the country has to support you. How is it that you do not know this? Is this information being kept from you? By whom?
The bilingual policy in Canada is costing Canadians some $20 billion annually. Thousands of patients in Canadian hospitals die annually from hospital infections caused by cut backs by governments who would rather invest money in buying the French vote to stay in power. How does that look on French Canadians.
In any event the policy of Bilingualism in Canada is ” rogue” legislation, having been foisted upon unsuspecting Canadians without their consent. And that is the quality of all legislation governing bilingualism in all ofCanada. Democracy has been set aside in our country by unscrupulous politicians. We are regressing back to barbarism.
