Passions ran high at South Stormont Language Fairness Meeting with Howard Galganov & Jurgen Vollrath – UPDATED


CFN
– Two guest presenters appeared on the agenda for tonight’s meeting of Language Fairness for All.  Human rights activists Howard Galganov and Jurgen Vollrath spoke with tremendous passion about the absolute need for more Canadians to wake up and put a stop to the steady erosion of rights which were defended by our forefathers in two world wars among others.

Galganov said to the assembly:

“I’m pissed off at the way our governments treat us.  We’re not a cookie jar for them to grab money and do with it what they want.  I will never vote for anyone who’s going to tell me how to live my personal life, but that seems to be what politicians like to do the most.  I remember the greatest generation ever … who understood what individual rights and freedoms were all about.  And that’s before we had a Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  They understood their obligation to their country, to their church or synagogue if they were believers, to their families, to their communities.  That’s all gone.”

Our video clip contains his presentation in its entirety.

Later, Vollrath exclaimed:

“We’re pissed!  … There are 177 [French language activism groups.]  In the City of Ottawa, we found [without any assistance from taxpayer funds] double-dipping by Franco organizations to the tune of $30 million dollars!”

In our video clip you can hear him elaborate on the apparent blind eye turned by politicians.

Further into his presentation, while recounting how tradesmen of differing nationalities and language groups were able to work alongside each other in the 1950s and 60s to produce homes, the quality of which is generally not seen today, Vollrath declared:

 “Up yours, government!  You cannot tell us [which language we have to do business in.]”

Not everyone in the gallery was a fan.  Although trying to give the impression of being supportive of the group by agreeing that there are injustices in the way “bilingualism” is being foisted upon Canadians, president of the La Société pour la Promotion du Bilinguisme (Society for the Promotion of Bilingualism), Jean Lecompte later tried to mock the group when he circulated a dummied version of a poster welcoming people to the meeting in some three dozen languages, implying that the recently adopted sign bylaw in South Stormont and the proposed South Glengarry resolution are opening the way for every minority group to be able to impose multi-lingualism on everyone.  In case there was any uncertainty in Lecompte’s mind that the bylaw actually respects Canadian’s rights not to have any particular language imposed upon them (when it comes to the posting of outdoor commercial signs), some meeting participants quickly set him straight. Lecompte interrupted the meeting a few times and was asked to save questions until the appropriate time at the conclusion of the formal presentations.  The meeting chairman actually had to stop Lecompte amid an extended rant during the question period to ask if he really had a question or not.  Here is our clip of the question period.

    Cory, the French nurse who was hired right after graduating reminds me of so many teachers I know who speak French who are hired right after graduating. Must be the English don’t have the big university loans..Have to wonder why the English student is accepted in university at all. Why not save them from the big debt.

    The same could be said of your viewpoints stella.

    perhaps a few ,but there are many french speaking that agree with the group as well!

    “Well cory only an idiot would apply for a job when they know full well that bilingualism is a requirement …and they are not bilingual.”

    “again, your biased. And again, as the head of this alleged newspaper blog, you should know better.”

    THIS IS HOW OPPRESSION HAPPENS WITHOUT THE USE OF A GUN.

    Richard said “Well Cory only an idiot would apply for a job when they know full well that bilingualism is a requirement …and they are not bilingual.”

    Exactly Richard. Knowing this, as it appears you do. Apply this to the following numbers. 96% unilingual English or NON French speaking Canadian tax paying citizens outside of the “province” of Quebec yet over 78% of the jobs posted (both government and private industry) being posted for only bilingual applicants.

    Doesn’t that “bilingualism as a requirement” logically create a COMPLETELY unfair and imbalanced slant towards the French minority? AND IN TURN wouldn’t that logically create anger and animosity and the kind of push back we are now seeing in these small communities with regard to language issues? All this to please 4%??? WHY ? REALLY … I NEED TO KNOW WHY???

    Piper…..yoohoo!!! Still waiting…No comment on my post of Oct 20 at 6:45 PM.

  5. stellabystarlight   October 21, 2012 at 1:31 PM

    Piper….my question was…….if an ENGLISH person posted here and didn’t agree with your group, nor your agenda and actions, would they be considred biased on the border of racism…….like you accused me of?

  6. highlander   October 21, 2012 at 5:54 PM

    Stella ,
    A person disagreeing does not make them bias ,but your own statements have .
    It is great that all people do not think alike particularly in your viewpoints,for wars have been started with less.

  7. Helga   October 21, 2012 at 6:10 PM

    The thing is, Stella, no English person disagrees with us. They disagree with you and your French agenda.

  8. highlander   October 21, 2012 at 6:27 PM

    Oh Stella ,
    Why do you not agree with representation by population?
    Or is it fair to you that 4% of the population has the lions share of goverment jobs as you have?

    Would you have your job if you were not french(bilingual)?

    If all this government hiring policies that we talk about on here
    Mean nothing why do you defend it so?

    Even the southern crackers defended slavery then defended segregation to them it was almost a religion…..sound similar?

  9. Richard tremblay   October 22, 2012 at 4:25 AM

    Howard we don’t have the lions share of the jobs, we can’t, our numbers are too low for us to get the lions share of the jobs. If you have to lie to try and prove your point well your position much really be on shaky grounds. So its 22 percent, I know our numbers are going down, probably why we need protectionist measures. The english language is much easier to speak then the french language. But what are you complaining about, you are fully bilingual. ITs a shame that every year in Cornwall that 22 percent keeps going down, and people with names such as trudeau, leroux, parisien can’t speak a word of french.

    @ Tremblay

    It’s getting really tiring hearing your rhetoric!

    The FACT is your spreading propaganda, calling Highlander a liar is ridiculous. He has proven himself over & over again, yet you continue to pull at straws & spew lies!!!

    Actually, if you truly believe Highlander is Howard, your stupider then I imagined!

    Do you really think Howad Galganov would waster his precious time arguing with the likes of you & Stella. Dream on buddy!!!

    Now Trembly I’m done with you!

    I want to give LFA a huge THANK-YOU for standing up for those who feel they can not. You should not feel ashamed or threatened by standing up for your basic human rights, to feel that way is allowing the racist franchophones to succeed in their agenda of intimidation & bullying.

    LFA do tell, when & where is your next protest???
    I will be there!
    I am not afraid to say “I’m not gonna take it anymore!!!”

    STRENGTH IN NUMBERS!!!!

    I quote “your stupider then I imagined” hmmm sounds really bright to me.

    “ITs a shame that every year in Cornwall that 22 percent keeps going down, and people with names such as trudeau, leroux, parisien can’t speak a word of french”.

    -Then teach it to your children -enforcing it on others does not benifit your culture.

    ” I know our numbers are going down, probably why we need protectionist measures.”

    -Why do you need protectionist measures?-Once again teach it to your own -rather then enforcing it on others !

    What about the natives and having protection for their near extinct languages ?
    They have been around far longer then 400 years, like 10,000 years why do you not think that their languages should be protected as french is through the entire country ?At the cost of trillions over 42 years.

    Its all about ethnocentrism isn’t it Richard?

    French first right ,french first!

  14. Richard tremblay   October 22, 2012 at 8:45 AM

    Howard, I’m the one demanding french first ? I’ll quote you?

    ¨Once again teach it to your own -rather then enforcing it on others !”

    Our own kind, like there was two different sets of people in Canada. Unilingual anglos, and bilingual french canadians. I’m sorry but that is not my canada. In french we call that la ségrégation.. My Canada has smart anglos and francos that can learn both official languages were need be.

  15. Richard tremblay   October 22, 2012 at 8:47 AM

    I have been on the reserve howard, the investments given to the natives is quite substantial. I’m sure you made a mistake on the numbers, 42 years, trillions. Howy, after that what will you make up ?

  16. Eric   October 22, 2012 at 9:00 AM

    Richard tremblay says “Well cory only an idiot would apply for a job when they know full well that bilingualism is a requirement …and they are not bilingual.”

    I was speaking with a hiring manager in the federal government last year. Most jobs would get about 100 resumes, the English only ones that are few and far between by the way, often get over 200! Language is only requirment because more French people have gone through ranks, public service allows workers to work and be supervised in the language they want, and English people have been sleeping at the switch. Public servants should be working for the Taxpayer needs, and 65% of Public Works in Ottawa being French is over supplied.

    Most people want peace and harmony stella, I am surprised that you still do not see politicians and laws have pushed some over the edge.

    Well Richard how ethnocentric again -there are many cultures in Canada all should be respected equally.

    Segregation is policy in Canada yes your Canada -take a look at Quebec policies its clearly segreagation …open your eyes… oh that’s right ethnocentric again.

    Jim.S.Allan a reputable financial researcher stated costs at est:

    $ 3,507,000,000,000 after 42 years for a net increase .58% increase of bilingualism.

    The Canadian taxpayers and Fraser institute have estimated federal costs only as: $ 1,169,000,000,000

    The 3.5 trillion is including all provinces.

    That is 7x our national debt to ensure what 250,000 more people speak french over the last 42 years .

    TALK ABOUT A POOR RETURN ON INVESTMENT!

  18. Highlander   October 22, 2012 at 9:52 AM

    So Richard the net increase of 250,000 more bilingual people for this experiment has cost near 4.7 million per person .

    With all this money spent on bilingualism we could have easily eradicated poverty in this country -which would serve all people not just one select group.

    Imagine Canada not having a national debt -3.5 trillion is 7 x our national debt.

    Our health care system would not be in crisis ,our taxes would be significantly lower.

    Think of all those social programs that could benefit all peoples rather then one .

    Just imagine the social implications had that money been allocated for ALL PEOPLE.

    Tremblay said:

    “I’m sorry but that is not my canada. In french we call that la ségrégation.. ”

    I call segregation the “French ONLY” clinic on Ninth & Sydney in Cornwall,On.
    I call segregation the “Montford” in Ottawa,On.
    I call segregation English & French school buses in Alexandria,On.

    & so on & so on…..

    @Debbie Cameron RE: October 22, 2012 at 7:25 am POST

    Thanks for sharing Debbie. That was a great show. Tammy was wonderful. VERY passionate. I sent her an e-mail to congratulate her.

  21. Richard tremblay   October 22, 2012 at 4:18 PM

    Even you must think that blaming the national debt on bilingualism is ridiculous. Maybe we should take up a collection like you did for your court fines that you still haven’t paid yet. I googled jim allan, and if reputable means contested, then he is reputably contested.
    So your saying that 2.4 billion a year times 42 years, it adds up to 3.5 trillion. Wow, not a big fan of jim flaherty but, thank god he’s the finance minister and not you.

  22. Awakened Anglo   October 22, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Don’t put words in Jim Allan’s mouth. Are you a minister of disinformation in the Richelieu club, Tremblay?

  23. highlander   October 23, 2012 at 8:33 AM

    Richard tremblay said :

    ” Even you must think that blaming the national debt on bilingualism is ridiculous.”

    No Richard 3.5 trillion spent on bilingualism over 42 years.

    Was just saying that money could have payed the national debt off 7 x over.

    Your getting as bad as Stella twisting turning words as well as the propaganda.

  24. Richard tremblay   October 23, 2012 at 2:20 PM

    Your numbers are wrong. 1 % of a yearly annual budget, if you go by the 2.4 billion you quoted out of an annual budget of 240 billion, can not add up to an expense of 3.4 trillion, even after 42 years. (even if you factor in the fictional .58%) Your numbers don’t add up. Howard, ever try a career in fiction. You’d be very successful at it.
