Cory Cameron Says that Democracy in Canada is Dead After the Galganov/Brisson Supreme Court of Canada Decision  LTE

When the highest court of the land refuses to hear the case of Howard Galganov and Jean-Serge Brisson who wish to advertise signs in the language of their choice, then you can hedge your bets that democracy is dead in our beloved Canada.

If courts in Canada at all levels refuse to grant to private businessmen the opportunity of expressing themselves as is supposedly guaranteed under Canada’s Charter of Right’s and Freedoms under Section 2b, then there is a problem, a very BIG problem.  But I digress, it will be an even bigger problem if us, as taxpayers and concerned Canadian citizens, do nothing at all about these types of subjects.

What is even more bold and more concerning, is that currently in Russel Township there are agencies who are flatly ignoring the By-Law that seeks to have businesses advertise in both English and French.  As CFN has already reported on this, I feel it would be a waste of time and print as to repeat the agencies in question and their reasoning behind the concept to ignore a By-Law that ALL businesses should abide by to begin with.

What have we got here?  Well, we have a two tier system that allows certain organizations to post signs in the language of their choice and apparently all others left to follow the laws of the land.

This situation folks is not a democratic ideal.  Two tier systems are the brainchilds and the results of totalitarian states that supposedly were left to the dustbin of history to quote Trotsky.  This sort of nonsense was supposed to have been left behind during the last century.  But like some grandiose, dark Pheonix, this concept of the caste system has been reborn in, of all places,  ‘Our’ freedom loving Canada.

Galganov is correct in his assertion when he states that this isn’t about a language issue but that the issue of language is but a symptom of something larger.  I would add that this something larger is but the concept that governments can dictate at their discretion what is best for its’ citizens.  But do we not elect our governments?  Or have they become our vanguard; willy-nilly deciding what is in our best interests?  This most recent decision by the Canadian Supreme Court not to hear Galganov and Brisson’s case tells us that indeed the above has become the new norm.

No worry folks; you need not think for yourselves as Big Government will do all the thinking for you.

My newest Letter to the Editor is not set out to insult nor insinuate anything to anyone nor any group but should be viewed as a wake up call to those who love the concept of democracy.  I am writing this today to help people understand what is occuring and the seemingly powerless affects of our courts to do anything about a subject so innocent as the freedom for business owners to advertise in the language(s) of their choice.

If our courts cannot do the right thing in such a simplistic issue then how are they to decide on other issues such as euthanasia?

Not only has my faith in all levels of the Canadian court system been impacted by all of this but also what defines our very concept of what we believe democracy to be.

When one group of people have access to the best jobs, political offices and are permitted to break laws (such as what is occuring in Russel today) then we simply no longer have a society that lives by the democratic ideal.

And what is even worse then the idea above, is that today we have language laws in both Ontario and Quebec that permit linguistic discrimination; both the artificial restricting of one and the propping up of another certain language to the negative effects of all others concerned.

Democracy is dead in Canada.

Simon, I was being polite. Cleaning things up if you will. It really had nothing to do with vacuums at all.

Of all the problems going on in Quebec from near financial crisis to corruption why is the government more concerned of language laws and their attempt to strengthen the LANGUAGE POLICE:

As for my life, I am doing very well for myself thank-you…..probably better then you could ever think of doing for yourself. With the amount of people I know and the many friends I have….your opinion mean nothing to me. **smile** Don’t concern yourself about my bad character….keep focused on the war on french…….ca -vas tresor?

Dear Moderator, Can you remind some of our listers the importance of staying on the subject matter and maintaining some level of decorum. I’m noticing (myself included) that we’re too often degenerating into name calling and the like. There is something else too and I would like to point it out. Many of us are coming out on here who are struggling to get our point across on the issues of fair hiring practices both within/without government circles and the like. Of course, there is also the issue of freedom of choice to post whatever language one wishes to on… Read more »

Hahahaha ken…you are funny manager. Actually, if you really knew me you would be shocked. What you see here is not I….nope not even close. Let me explain: French people are loving, kind, sincere and caring folks, they love their country and what it stands for. They dislike trouble and troublemakers who want to destroy and seperate a nation. You see….there are ways of doing things which you, as a manager should know. You got a problem….follow procedures and go through the proper channels….correct? Picketing, barging in uninvited at meetings and giving out pamphlets on how to eliminate a culture… Read more »

Dear Moderator, Could you please eliminate the name calling that has been directed to the french people that have been coming to this site. As you know we have been called every name in the book, to the point that many did leave and never came back. I know you are a busy man, but perhaps when you have time, you could look in the archives…..they don’t lie. Cory has many times incited and made derogatory comments directed to me? Why would that be acceptable for him and no one else? …the archives don’t lie. If we were treated fairly… Read more »

Amazing……cory posted my reply to ken…..but didn’t post what ken said to me. That is what I mean by “he is too focused on what I say”

When someone insults another…….the normal reaction is to reply……Ca-vas? Tu comprends maintenant?

@ Stella. Don’t worry about it. There’s all kinds of poo-flinging around here. It comes with the territory. 🙂

Are insults only allowed by one side? It seems there is just as much given as is gotten. Funny people are offended when they dish it out so well.

Stella, your latest posts have just proven again what I just highlighted. You just posted a total of 3 times, not adding anything of substance to the argument; only personal attacks to 2 of us here. That would be Ken and I. Your palate reflects the sweetness of heated argumentative desserts but the main course of what you have to say negates the needed good calories of meat and potatoes… Do you understand this metaphor? In other words, too much emotion and not enough good quality detective work goes into your postings, Stella. How much time did you take in… Read more »

@ Stella “French people are loving, kind, sincere and caring folks, they love their country and what it stands for.: Fine, I know French people who completely fit that character but there is one more trait that those I know have that not all French people have and that is ” understanding”. You see the ones I know are okay with me not being able to speak French fluently. I honestly don’t believe we would be in this mess if all French people would be more accepting instead of so demanding. We don’t know the circumstances as to why some… Read more »

@concerned citizen 2
PS Alexandria is getting a nice new ETHNOCENTRIC Franco flag, in Highland Park no less…Sounds like a Scottish park to me, just sayin…
Not surprised, mentioned before how Alexandria has changed…
See how long it takes them to change the name “Highland Park” Obviously that’s not going to sit well under the Franco flag.

Next on the agenda for Alexandria and North Glengarry. Forced bilingual signage by-law and then it will be South Glengarry.

Just wondering .”Glengarry Highland Games” will it have to change it’s name?

@Stella, Stella you do twist things to create your own agenda. Neither CLF, Galganov nor any of the supporters are trying to eradicate the French language, or the Culture as you would like your supporters to believe. Many of us have French Canadian friends, relatives, business associates and to even suggest that we would want to destroy those relationships is asinine. Try and understand that being French with a French name like Ms. LeCompte. together with “mandatory bilingualism, currently and for the past thirty years has given you, and the distinct society, a very unfair advantage in the workplace.

“The right wing freedom fighters goal is to eliminate french and separate a peaceful nation”
-stating eliminating french is spreading hate propaganda.

There you are again claiming that groups fighting for equity are separating the country when the separatist of Quebec are the only trying to do that.

Why are you not blaming the separatists ?
Rather then a peaceful group advocating for equity and fair hiring practices.

It seems that your hate mongering should be directed at the separatists ,not groups advocating for fairness.

Re: Rosie’s post ON December 13, 2012 at 7:08 pm.

Well said Rosie. And, so true. My mother (a very proud French Canadian woman) could never understand why “some” in her family were nasty and showed disrespect (in a very snide “laugh at you to your face” type of way) towards the English. A VERY French (not all) kinda trait.

Carry on Rosie. Enjoying your input 🙂

Shaking my head………… Stella, I just don’t understand it. I do feel that your response to me listed above isn’t warranted. It is full of hatred – this much is obvious.

Stella, you also wrote: “I have something to tell and ask you. One evening I said to myself, just let him be, don’t respond…..lo and behold, you got real ignorant that same night.” Yes I did. Stella, it seems that the only time you respond to messages is if people are somehow rude to you. I can prove this as well. When very straightforward questions are put to you you seem to dance around them and then issue questions of your own to the very same person who just asked one of you.

So people why is Stella not fighting the separatists since they are the ones trying to separate the country? -she advised all here that is why she dislikes LANGUAGE FAIRNESS FOR ALL.

So really its not about trying to prevent separating the country but preserving those privileges.

We are all equal under God ,but not under Canadian law.

Many of us are directly or have loved ones who are directly affected and want people to UNDERSTAND how stupid these policy’s are and so on.

Cory and highlander, you deserve stella’s mocking, because you never fail to swallow her bait. You validate her BS by analyzing her every silly word, seeking her answers to your questions as if she were a sage, wondering why she uses this or that emoticon. You give her undeserved star treatment and then complain why she treats you with disdain.

Good morning Timmins followers,

For those of you who I have spoken to over these last few weeks about the ongoing language right’s battles unfolding before our very eyes, I would like to make you aware of some articles here on CFN and abroad.

A simple search of the following here on CFN of Cory Cameron, Eric Little, Language Fairness for All, Howard Galganov, South Stormont and South Glengarry will give you a plethora of material in which to understand what we are dealing with.

The Supreme Court has no time for Galganov but does if you can not get a 7UP in French, even though Air Canada only has Coke products…..
