Bill 14 – I’m Boycotting Quebec Until After Labour Day. Are you? by Jamie Gilcig – March 13, 2013

Bill 14 – I’m Boycotting Quebec Until After Labour Day.  Are you?  by Jamie Gilcig – March 13, 2013

maroisCFN –  Is it time to boycott all things Quebec?   A boycott is a severe thing; but with Bill 14 looming and the strange occurrences since the last election there that never seem to be resolved could it be best if people give La Belle Province a wide berth for awhile?

Don’t get me wrong; as a former Montrealer there are many things I still love about the once great city.

But I could go a summer without Schwartz’s and steamies if it makes a statement.

Frankly I visit “back home” less and less.  It’s not just the crazed roads and constant construction.  It’s not just the all too more frequent customer service issues if I dare speak “Anglais”.

It’s this darn Bill 14.  It’s the fact that things became so bad in Quebec that the people of Quebec decided to grant Ms Marois a government.

In Canada we still have free choice; and frankly my choice is leaning towards making my little statement.  My one little token of boycotting Quebec until after Labour Day.   I think I can do it.

Yes, I’ll still visit my family; but I won’t be dining or spending any money there.    Do I expect my little boycott to change anything?  Not really; but imagine if millions of people did?

Politicians rely on people never doing anything no matter how badly they behave.   They’re used to manipulating small groups of people to grab power.   When I wrote during the student tuition protests that it simply was PQ agitation I think the election results showed how right myself and many others of the same belief were.

Quebec made its choice.   In some ways I think it was a good one because people can focus on the brutally ugly culture of linguistic facism that exists.  Francophones in Quebec will have to realize that the only people that can save French in Quebec are Francophones.   Anglophones, and Allophones are not to blame and not the issue.  It’s time to stop punishing the English language and  culture hoping that Quebec will become some Francophone Mecca.

Until Quebec changes its ways the results will essentially be the same.

Now the big question is why the Federal government remains so silent on what’s happening to Canadians living in Quebec that don’t subscribe to the provincially mandated madness, and why they are abdicating those citizens rights…

Awww… That’s great. Thanks for reminding me of that Stella-no-so-bright. But, are those parents outlawing YOU from having children and sending them to school also? NO. There is HUGE difference between taxes going to public schools and taxes going to subsidize a language and culture which is — within the same damn breath — outlawing the very language and culture that is subsidizing their their language an culture in the first place. CAN YOU NOT SEE HOW F*76%%^%ed up that is? No, i don’t suppose you can cause from you and your ilk its the constant refrain of DENY DENY… Read more »

Stella, Stella, Stella. There is NOTHING wrong with “this country CANADA.” That’s right. Canada is just fine. It has a ONE FLAG — the maple leaf — ONE national anthem — Oh Canada — and one common language — English — You see. NO PROBLEM. Where “the problem” begins is there is a group of power hungry people in this little power hungry pittance of a “province” called Quebec. These people there have decided that they are BETTER than others and want to “pretend” like they are a country. They go around saying ridiculous things like their flag is the… Read more »

Richard ,Pierre and Stella still waiting for you to answer these Questions:

The United Nation’s have stated that North America’s indigenous people’s languages are at near critical levels of extinction.
Has the United Nations stated the same for the French language …NO..So tell me why not protect the Native languages and fund them to the same extent as the French language as the united Nations have indicated the near extinction.

So Richard Pierre and Stella is French more important to protect then the native languages even given these facts?

Why do you keep avoiding the questions ?

It’s a tragety that the native languages are going extinct,yet French language IS NOWHERE NEAR EXTINCT but it has been afforded protection status with legislation and billions in funded. Yet our goverment refuses to except the UN’S statement on aboriginal language ,and continues to push for bilingualism in the protection of the French language,yet not a whisper on the dying native languages. Yes I would much prefer we protect the truly endangered languages with the same protection and funding,then to push a political adgenda.

Then perhaps you would be taken seriously and at the same time it MAY enhance your credibility. IF YOU TRULY CARED FOR THE NATIVES, YOU WOULD HAVE EMBARKED ON THIS MISSION LONG AGO TO HELP THEIR CAUSE….perhaps when bill 101 first came out. Nope you didn’t care back then.

Cory asked, “why not protect the Native languages and fund them to the same extent as the French language” Here’s my unofficial but (if i can be so bold) poignant reply for everyone to chew on. I guess it’s because the native peoples didn’t have “a Trudeau figure” planting people in strategic positions within the federal system back in the late 70’s setting things up for the long term gain of “his people.” I guess it’s because the native peoples didn’t have “a Trudeau figure”… Read more »

best news from her/him ,whatever, is that stella doesn’t want you to reply to her posts. I guess when you call one’s bluff, they do not want to be called on it. Especially if their true colors are shown.
