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 DENY and use doublespeak at each and every opportunity that you can.

    Oh and, i find it most interesting how you didn’t address this part of my post…

    In case you are unaware is, the French have taken the simple original request (which i agreed with initially) that service be provided within the federal government to the French in their language AND…
    WHAT ABOUT THAT STELLA? WASN’T it suppose to be services provided by the federal government ONLY?

    YES, IT WAS…

    Somehow the French have turned that simple request into this huge, costly and totally unacceptable idea of providing French service in every business, hospital, police force, fire station and grocery store in this whole damn country. Oh, did i mention that while the English are bending over backwards and spending billions of their tax dollars providing this service — to help the French– the French are passing laws that outlaw the English language in their “chez nous?”

    – THAT WAS NEVER the original request which the majority Anglophones agreed to.

    And, what’s worse is this endeavor is costing us Billions and Billions

    – (this is over and above the cost numbers that Pierre and Tremblay are quoting)

    to provide these ALL French services to, in some cases 45 people in a area that has a population of 27, 665 non French people OR
    in another area that has 875 people vs 814, 670 non French people. That is an example of the ENORMOUS COST for such small numbers.

    Typical of your ilk. No sense of fairness, courtesy and respect…

    @

    “The nightmare clan ”

    That’s us. What a great moniker. Thanks pierre. for once you got it right.

    @ stella

    “Do you think honest intelligent people are influenced by the “nightmare’s clan’s” videos?

    Well stella, yes. I forward all of these videos to people in both Canada and the U.S. The feedback I am getting is very positive.
    One person, has decided to collect them, and she is actually cataloging them to forward to Italy. She , also has family in new York city,, quite prominent in real estate actually, and is sending them there as well, not to mention to other places as well.
    I have a very good friend of mine, who is a police officer, in western Ontario, and he can’t get enough of these videos and posts from CFN. he forwards them all over as well.

    If you view the video that edudyorlik posted, it seems to me that the state if Michigan has taken notice as well.
    Each and every day, stella, I have a list of people I forward these posts and videos to. They in turn forward them to their friends, relatives etc. and they in turn forward them to their fieinds and relatives and so on.

    So far stella, NO ONE has told me or any one else to STOP sending the videos and posts.
    As well, we love it when you, trembly, and pierre post. Inadvertently, you make our cases for us, by unproven facts you all cling to, it makes us look great, and you guys, well……

    So please don’t stop posting and commenting , any of you, despite what imperiitif francais says, go for it, the three of you, make our days brighter with rants, raves, supposition, nonsense, bias and prejudice, your hallmarks that will lead to our success.

    trembly, I am still waiting for the names of those businesses you said posted external English signs on Hull’s main street.
    How many were there again ? What are the names? What are their Exact addresses?

    See stella, told ya. trembly clutches again, and this will be passed on to all, along with his poor little baby antics of being called names boo-hoo, ti, bebe la -la.

    I am glad that you underestimate of power of the net here.

    “You shouldn’t be trying to tell Quebec either…unless you live there. Capish??”

    They remain Canadian and when people are mistreated and alienated it is all of Canada’s issue ,human rights are for all not just a select group or province ******smile*******

    “The Gov doesn’t have to have the english’s approval first before deciding how and where our tax doallrs should be spent…….get that through your head **smile**”

    The government is to be accountable to its people and because the people never ,ever ,ever voted on the issue that effects their day to day life ….yes the people not just English should play a part in hows its spent.**********smile*************

    Oh by the way do still have not answered my 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

    I am glad you received my email. However, I did not receive your to me. I checked both my hot mail and yahoo accounts and still I received no email from you

  7. peter says:

    @ stella, trembly pierre

    In reference to my last post at 1:38 p.m. . are there any more like you guys out there that will post. We need all the support we can get.

    Since your posts are inspiring to us all, given they are filled with nothing but bias and rhetoric, we would love to hear from any or all of your ilk. Nothing solidifies our cause more then to hear from people like you. Your comments and assertions are always shot down with facts and proven sources, that we really love the way you build up our positions.

    it is great when you quote polls, stats and bias reporting, it lends credence to our position and proves us right time and time again.
    The fact that none of you do any homework, don’t know your own quebec history , are not aware of your own quebec laws ( bill 101 for example) is reflected in everything you post. Every stat you quoted, every poll you referred to, every law you tried to defend, not only did we prove you wrong, but we provided the actual proof to do so from a wide variety credible sources.

    So please, if you know any more people like you, that want to post, get them writing their nonsense here as well. We are only too glad to shoot them down as well , and for the rest of the world to see just what you guys are like and what you are about.

    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 fleur de Lys,

    their Natiional anthem is .. whatever it is whatever it is they are saying it is
    AND
    their common language is French.

    But, there is ONE HUGGGGGGGEEEE problem with that whole little deal there Stella_not_so_bright.

    DO you know what THAT PROBLEM IS?

    I am sure YOU DO KNOW what the PROBLEM is, right?

    Yes, that’s right… You GOT IT. Those power hungry folk in that little “province” are simply — in a province — NOTHING MORE…

    That’s right and, that little “province” (believe iot or not. I KNOW it`s tough but) resides INSIDE the “REAL” country called Canada and, as i was mentioned at the beginning of this post. That REAL country“ is the one with the maple leaf as it’s flag, Oh Canada as it’s anthem and English as it’s common language.

    PROBLEM. ONE country that has this annoying “little province” within it that has many people there who think that their language and their culture is the almighty EVERYTHING .

    SOLUTION. Let those insane people GO… Let them have that god forsaken province over there (minus the parts before 1867)

    And there we go… PROBLEM SOLVED. **smile**
    Remember now, have a nice day eh :-)

  14. Richard tremblay says:

    man, il en a qui on du temps à perdre. 146 billion when the total earning of the federal gov last year was 245billion, yeah, that is about right. More then half of total earnings of total revenues go to those darn french people. I hear french people are also responsible for nuclear war, our national debt, and Al-Qaeda.

    trembly,

    you didn’t answer my questions either. Please name the English businesses that line Hull’s main street displaying external English signs.

    Name the businesses. What are their addresses ?

    What do the signs say in English ?

    How many are there ?

    What the matter trembly, no can do ?

    Gee and I thought you were actually going to answer.

    I hope your fragile little ego has not been bruised today.
    I hope no one called you any names. if so, tell mummy marois and she will fix.

    bad, bad English people. Boo-hoo

    Ti bebe la -la

    What are the names of those businesses trembly, you know the ones putting up external English signs in Hull, how many are they?

  18. peter says:

    @ pierre, stella, trembly

    Remember, everyone , if your amis are like you guys , they are more than welcome to post here. The more of your ilk the better.

    I would love to send more of the diatribe you guys produce so the world can see first hand what we here at CFN , see on a daily basis. you can’t make this stuff up.

    Remember, they have to be just like you guys.

    They should, like you guys, :

    1) do no research

    2) Are bias

    3) have no idea about Canada’s or quebec’s history

    4) have never read bill 101

    5) haven’t a clue as to the dictionary definition of what bilingualism means

    6) can’t see farther than your noses

    7) actually believe they know something

    PS: can anyone of the “nightmare clan ” add to this.

    Please feel free. Have I left anything out.

    WOW, we can gather enough of these posts and really look great. the norm, albeit, Te f—d S—D , will win the day.

    people all over Canada and beyond will see guys for who and what you really are.

  19. peter says:

    @ trembly

    you haven’t answered my questions as well.

    What are the names of those businesses in HUll, Where external English are displayed ?

    Where are they located exactly ?

    What do the signs say ?

    What does the English casino sign say ?

    Hoqw many businesses are openly displaying external English Signs?

    trembly,lets go, get with the program

    ” A common thread”

    When our ” Canada care clan” asks the “FS” for responses to our questions, there seems to be a common thread.

    it takes an eternity to answer if ever. Can someone on the FS please tell me why it takes so long for you people to respond to our questions.

    Another thing, is that when they either comment or try to answer our questions, it is usually, with immaterial , or empty rhetoric.

    case in point, I still waiting for trembly to answer my questions, as is Highlander.

    the other genius, stella, is still going on about education and stats, boy if thre was ever irony ,its using the term education in the same breath as stella.

    Anyway, just wondering if the “Canada cares clan” saw what I saw as a common thread ro threads.

    Can I add few to add to your list if i may:

    1-Superiority complex with regards to THEIR language /culture./

    2-Feel that THEIR language is the only one that needs protection.

    3-Agree with oppressing other cultures in the so called protection of their culture.

    4-Prefer propaganda to facts.

    5- Believe one form of oppression bill 101 & 14 is alright but regulation 17 which WAS far less oppressive was wrong .
    Since when is oppressing peoples no matter the cause RIGHT!

    6-They must ENCOURAGE & PUSH their language rights way beyond “where numbers warrant”.

    7-You must encourage cultural segregation !

    8-Encourage cultural assimilation inside and out of Quebec borders.

    9-Ensure that merit is surpassed by language.

    10-Must understand humanity is no obstacle when it comes violating the rights of others ,in the interest of the French language !

  22. Highlander says:

    WOW ,this article talks of CULTURAL SEGREGATION.
    This From the French Language minister ,I am trying to figure out how that is to help the cultural/linguistic groups with harmony ?

    Since when is segregation good?
    I still cant believe that OUR country permits this ,yet is the first to chastise other countries that would encourage this !

    these are the typesof people we want to post here, your bon amis, so we can send these all over the U.S. ,Canada and abroad.
    This will truly reflect your mentality, prejudies, and anti- everything that you people stand for.

    As you can see, this is the type of response you’re likely to receive from those ethnocentrics who think of nobody but them and theirs.

    Indeed, I would like to openly state that all funding traditionally allocated for our current bilingualism program instead be given for the preservation of Canada’s indigenous languages. As the United Nations has openly stated that Canada’s indigenous languages are now threatened to the point of near extinction and some have already disappeared from the earth. I’m sure that Stella and company would agree with this statement as they have agreed that the French and English languages are nowhere near extinction levels.

    So CFN viewers. What do you think?

    Should money earmarked traditionally for bilingualism instead be spent on ensuring that our indigenous languages are preserved and perhaps enhanced in numbers?

    I think this would be a more fair and equitable practice?

    What do you think?

    How do you feel about this issue?

  26. highlander says:

    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.

    Let’s not let these indigenous peoples who have been here 10,000 years lose their languages.

    I’m certain those billions and the legislated protection will guarantee more then a .1% gain over 42 years.

    Their silence speaks volumes

  28. stellabystarlight says:

    The answer to your question is NO. Got that??? That being said….why don’t you guys fight to get more funds for the natives and leave the french culture alone. 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. Suddenly…..you try to come across as you do care. Using the natives as an example to try and justify your cause is somewhat weak…..they are getting more then their fair share.

    All you really care about is:

    1) to seperate this country

    2) destroy and eliminate the french culture.

    3) rule and control

    You see, the french are not obssessed like you guys are. We do have a life and more important things to do. Never for one minute think we are afraid………LOL It would take much more then you guys to scare us away. Actually we enjoy coming here, the absurdity of it all is at times is amusing and funny……but it hasn’t taken control of our life.

  29. edudyorlik says:

    Good morning to you Cory. Good post btw, on April 5, 2013 at 7:01 am.
    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” straight out telling “his people” to “be master in your own house but, be sure that house is ALL of Canada”

    AND,

    I guess it’s because the native peoples didn’t have “a Trudeau figure” passing laws and implementing changing the constitution to be sure “his/their” culture and language is funded to the rafters and protected above ALL OTHERS.

    A coup, a strategic take over, being taken advantage of or whatever you decide to call IT…

    And all the stella’s and young star struck little teenie bopers want to vote for Justine NOW????? OMG

    WE… The MAJORITY must awaken and push back against this.

    WE… THE MAJORITY must not let the memory of our forefathers who fought and shed their blood for our rightful place in this country be forgotten.

    Sure, there is a place in this country for minorities. YES. That is so. I fully agree with that.

    BUT, NO MAJORITY would allow the minorities to call the shots in the way that is going on right now.

    Does anyone honestly think that ANY COUNTRY (pick one) would allow that their main leader COULD NOT be chosen from among the group that speaks the majority common language in whatever country you can think of? That is INSANE people. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE.

    Oh and, if that wasn’t enough. Have a look at this…

    http://www2.macleans.ca/2013/04/03/en-francais-svp-quebec-tells-ministers-to-speak-french-with-canadian-counterparts/

    Is there no end to their sense of entitlement. Not speaking the (ENGLISH) the common language of this country to the very people handing them billions in mostly ENGLISH tax payers money?

  30. highlander says:

    stellabystarlight April 5, 2013 at 9:06 a

    “The answer to your question is NO. Got that???

    You sound resentful in that statement!

    So you do not agree that your language (French) is more important then native .
    That’s great ,but why is the French laguage(which is nowhere near extinction ) more protected then the near extinct native languages?

    Using the natives as an example to try and justify your cause is somewhat weak…..they are getting more then their fair share.

    Our cause is LANGUAGE FAIRNESS ,but your comment here borders on rascism, I and others have spoken of native language issues about over the last year or so .

    So where is the logic in letting the near extinct native languages die yet legislate and fund another language in protection of that language ,of which the language is thriving?

    So in Reality its bill 101& bill 14 and bilingualism is not to protect a language ,but to enforce it on others,as those laws and policies do not protect the truly threatened languages.

    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.

    I was not born then but you were around why hadnt you spoke up rather then your own interest speak up for the native languages.
    I have a very sneaky feeling that you do nothing unless its in your interest ,and culture.

    @ “The Canada’s cares Clan”

    Well, well, stella is alive and well. I thought for a second there that she had vacated us, as did trembly and pierre.

    @ stella

    stella, can you ask trembly when he is going to answer my questions, concerning the names of the English businesses in Hull that hve external English signs on the main street in hull that he claimed were there?

    I need to know the following :

    the names of these businesses?

    How many are there ?

    What do the signs say ?

    How long have they been displayed ?

    What does the BIG ENGLISH sign in the Hull casino say ?

    How big is the lettering ?

    Why haven’t the L’Office de las screw les Anglais been notified, of these serious threats to the french language and culture ??

    Thank you stella

    It seems this is a constant refrain from certain folks.

    “All you really care about is:
    1) to seperate this country (the
    2) destroy and eliminate the french culture.
    3) rule and control”

    1) The ONLY people who have been trying to separate this since i was a teenager has been THE FRENCH.
    2) The ONLY laws that exist against a language and culture are the one written by the French against the English language and the English culture.
    3) The only ones trying to RULE AND CONTROL are the French.

    * Montfort hospital began as bilingual, but NOW French ONLY.

    * The university of Ottawa started with the idea of being bilingual, now mostly French controlled.

    And it goes on and on…

    You see, it is the french that are obsessed

    As for the Anglophones well, we enjoy coming here, the absurdity of what the French say is at times is amusing and funny… :-)

    DOUBLESPEAK … Woooo hooooo. It’s fun. Let’s all learn it…

    @ stella,

    you may be french, but we are CANADIAN.

    We have a clearly defined language and culture, that has been rooted in the British parliamentry system. both the federal and provincial governemnts follow its principles and heritage, save of cource, quebec, and (the french , what else is new ?)

    by the very fact you refer to yourself as french, says it all. You are french first and always, so please, don’t TRY TO PRETEND YOU ARE CANADIAN, you are french.

    And, yes , I want to separate the french from the Canadian, so as Canadians, we can have the country we want without , the laws of racism and fsciasm that engulfs quebec and the french that agree with these laws.
    you know, bill 101 and bill 14, the quasi-language police you deem as necessary and like that

    Someone who shall remain nameless asked me (called me) to have a look at Stella’s response to my questions pertaining to have money that is traditionally set aside for bilingualism instead be given for natives.

    I had hoped not to address it for I don’t regularly read comments from Stella.

    This warrants an examination though….

    Stella’s response to the question was No!

    When asked the question by me this morning:

    “Should money earmarked traditionally for bilingualism instead be spent on ensuring that our indigenous languages are preserved and perhaps enhanced in numbers?”

    Stella had this to say:

    “The answer to your question is NO. Got that??? That being said….why don’t you guys fight to get more funds for the natives and leave the french culture alone.”

    So there it is in plain and (ironically though, English terms!) Stella would rather see our indigenous languages disappear from the face of the earth than to have that money traditonally earmarked for quote, unquote, “billingualism’, to instead be focused on saving Canada’s indigenous languages. :(

    I cannot believe it this afternoon after having read that. So I guess her rant towards the so-called concept of ‘bilingualism’ can indeed be an admission that it is a process of Frencification, then? If not, why such the ardent support of bilingualism?

    Again, she writes:

    “Using the natives as an example to try and justify your cause is somewhat weak…..they are getting more then their fair share.”

    Getting more than their fair share, Stella!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????? Is this why people in Aboriginal communities in Northern Canada for the most part do not have adequate housing, food, or clean drinking water!??????? Are you kidding me?!!!!!!!!

    Using the natives as an example Stella of what we mean by, ‘fair’ and ‘equitable’ is indeed a strong argument of what we’re talking about here, Stella. There is something wrong in my Canada when people’s basic needs aren’t being met in Canada (especially one of the founding people’s; if I may be so bold as to group Aboriginal nations together to prove my point here!) for the purpose of pushing a language.

    So, for you, the so-called bilingualism program is more important than saving Canada’s indigenous languages?

    Remember again, French is not in any trouble of disappearing in Canada at all!!!!!

    And these Aboriginal Languages, by the way, have been around for thousands of years. They’re about to go extinct………

    Tell me Stella, we’re you one of those racist Quebecois throwing stones at the cars of the people of the Pines whenever they were returning to their homes in Kanesatake after the Oka Crisis?

    It makes me sick to think that we carry the same passport, you and I…..

    I’m going to be sick now.

    @ Cory and

    “Canada Cares clan”

    Cory, this is in complete sync with what stella, trembly and pierre, and the rest of their ilk advocate

    I have been saying what you have written for 50 years now.

    There is NO SURPRISE HERE.

    What SICKENS ME MORE, is that the all levels of politicans from city through to th federal ones , have done nothing, with rare exceptions.

    Mayor McGillis, ,Tammy Hart, and mayor Gendron of Huntington.

    This nation of ours is in real trouble. our basic freedoms of speech are being raped , and we are standing around doing NOTHING.

    I am older now, but as I suggested a while back, what we need is an advertising campaign, on a massive scale.

    it will have to be done and supported by the private sectors and by contributors like you and me.

    We need cordination with national English lingustic groups across Canada. We need the videos seen here on CFN to go across canada, particularly the stats that illustrated how trudeau masterfully, transformed Ottawa to a french national capital.
    The stats that Eric quoted, as well as yours, eduyorlik’s and Highlander’s, and Rosie’s . These materials should as well be forwarded to politicans as well.

    People in canada, should be FULLY AWARE THAT BILINGUALISM MEANS french ONLY. I will support any an all efforts towards this goal in any way I can given my age and health restrictions, However, if you look at the natives in canada,here, we are looking at our (n English ) futures

    BTW: I am glad to see trembly and pierre have disappeared for
    now. Now there is one

    cory…….Do you know how to read?

    Highlander wrote @4:07 AM April 5th: So Richard Pierre and Stella is French more important to protect then the native languages even given these facts?

    MY REPLY TO HIGHLANDER WAS NO ……GOT THAT? {MODERATED} This probably will be deleted but shouldn’t because you are accusing me of saying something I never said and turning it around to stir sh#t again……like you always do.

    Let me simplify this for you, you always seem to get confused. The question was “IS FRENCH MORE IMPORTANT” The majic word is “MORE” Got that so far?

    Then I replied NO. Let me simplify even more so you could understand. NO FRENCH IS NOT MORE IMPORTANT. Still following or are you still confused?

    Do me a big favor, I don’t ask for much in life, but PLEASE don’t respond to my post. Keep your promises, I don’t need and don’t like troublemakers. Comprends- tu?

    Take a seltzer for your upset stomach……**smile**

    Tell that nameless person (if there is one) that my response was certainly a reply to your post that is for sure. It’s not worth my time and energy to respond especially to what you have to say…..

    correction: that my response WAS CERTAINLY NOT a reply to your post that is for sure. It’s not worth my time and energy to respond especially to what you have to say…..

    @ Bravo Cory

    well, you got it right again Cory, and again stella is trying to turn things around, in a manner we are all too accustomed to reading

    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.

    great one Cory

    you loose again stella. Like I always said an “eurdite” you are not.

    And yes stella, that is a word.

    “Let me simplify this for you, you always seem to get confused. The question was “IS FRENCH MORE IMPORTANT” The majic word is “MORE” Got that so far?”

    So now you have said that does not the native languages warrant the same legislative and monetary protection as the French language as thiers is truly endangered ?

    If to You Stella,Pierre and Richard are advocating for language protection as you have all stated why not advocate for those truly dying indigenous languages.

    If you believe as you do in protecting languages ,would you advocate for truly endangered indigenous languages and have the same legislated and monetary protection as French?
