Social Engineering in Cornwall Ontario?  French University for River City?  City Approves $50K Feasability Study

Steering CommitteeCFN – Cornwall City Hall did the back door shuffle and have agreed to send $50K to fund the study that the committee above have asked to have commissioned.

Little has been said about their vision; but CFN has been digging and could the reason for the secrecy simply be that Cornwall wishes to establish a French University?    And if so why the secrecy?  Are the politicians which chiefly make up this group concerned about a back lash from the public for spending public tax dollars on such a project.

Many don’t realize that there is a major regional push to attract disgruntled Francophones from Quebec to Cornwall and it makes some sense in that with Quebec’s economic and political woes an opportunity to attract young families is there.  Couple that with a desire politically to have a French University in Ontario and you have a recipe for something that could attract people and money to Cornwall.

Lapresse recently ran a piece discussing Cornwall.    LINK   The article discussed a drop in Francophones from 30 to 26% and the concerns of some of the locals.   Councilor Maurice Dupelle was quoted, but most of the quotes came from Georgette Sauve of the SD&G ACFO)

Translated quote:

Francophone immigration is one of the keys. We need new blood to maintain an acceptable level of French in Cornwall, “said the President.

Education, employability and apparently French Education were primary concerns.

“We must put pressure on elected officials to implement policies to facilitate the immigration of French here. Employers also have a role to play. Finally, the number of allophones who turns aside default the English school system is also a big problem that we have identified, “says the president of the ACFO-SDG, Georgette Sauvé.

It was also discussed on TFO’s 360 show.  CLICK to watch VIDEO REPORT.

The question many will be asking is why all the secrecy and why not have open discussion by politicians in the community rather than   writing cheques and socially engineering our region?  After all it’s everyone’s tax dollars and we all live here.  Surely the public should have some say in some of these decisions?

We already have the stench of having two of the committee members, Mayor Kilger and Councilor Elaine MacDonald on the committee not recusing themselves from discussion or voting on the issue which violates number 2 of their Declaration of Office.

2. I have not received and will not receive any payment or reward, or promise thereof, for the
exercise of this office in a biased, corrupt or in any other improper manner.

Clearly there is a reward when you as a member of a group ask for cash from city hall?  You have achieved a goal which is of course a reward.

Again, nothing against having a French University in Cornwall, or French in general, but these processes and forcing the public to pay for freight without public consultation surely isn’t Democratic, is it?  And while having a University isn’t a bad thing how many of these French Uni grads would be staying in Cornwall?

What do you think CFN viewers?  You can post your comments below.

See folks……..this is Howard playing his games again. My response to Rosie was. Rosie to be honest with, I can’t answer your first question because I don’t know the answer. I would imagine it would be like the school system where the teacher pays. Here is the piper’s reply to my post: Stella when CCH sends their employee’s to be tested at new avenues it is the hospital and therefore the taxpayers that foot the bill . So therefore you are wrong again -get used to it ….being wrong. After me saying to Rosie, I could not answer her questions,… Read more »

Quebec policies with regards to language are creating the divide these video’s and news articles only provide the proof of this. “The most disgusting thing is how this group want to divide this country.” Once again its the SEPARATISTS (a political party in power) that wish to divide the country -put… Read more »

Edudyorlik, Highlander, Peter, Rosie, Eric, LFA members and supporters: I just returned from a trip to the Post Office whereby two employees were conversing in French. No problem there. When I conversed in English to one of them the entire service was conducted in French to me even though I gave no inclination of having the ability to speak French. If each one of us does one little thing to inconvenience them every day then we can at least say we’re doing a little part of this I have no problem being spoken to in French though why wasn’t I… Read more »

And speaking of receiving service in my own language?

Why didn’t another employee come out and start talking English with me if this was the case? I refused to switch to French because I thought to myself it should be the responsibility of the service provider to get someone who spoke English and not the responsibility of the consumer to speak the language of one of their employees. I would have waited; I had no problem with this at all and no one was behind me waiting in line.

I guess like most Canadians; I’ll continue to be a sheep.

One other thing…

If I cannot mail a letter through regular mail and don’t like the services that Canada Post constitutes – what choice do I have to mail a letter within a reasonable cost rate?

Purolator doesn’t seem to be reasonable; for just a letter.

Well, I’ll leave my comments and rantings and ravings here on CFN. The difference between myself and another party; I won’t be complaining to the Language Commissioner and suing for a lack of the ability for a stewardess to serve me 7-up in English.

Don’t try to wiggle out of the facts.” Some may believe that Canada would be better without Quebec but that remains their personal view as is your personal view in agreement of bill 101 and bill 14 and all that the Separatist want including separation. Yet they are a political party in power with every intention of separation and YOU agree with their policies. They are a political party in power funded by the… Read more »

Corey, I’m going to agree with you. Wow, yesterday kilroy and now you. Thinking I might be off my meds. (haha) IF that happened, the government employee should have replied in english. Well, If I may take the quote from rosie, now you know how I feel. This is happening to me all the time. I’ll address the person in french and they will reply in english even though they fully understand french. Frustrating isnt corey.
