Eric Little LTE   believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear”, and I will add, until you investigate for yourself

LTEOften when reading political documentation, blogs or some media reports, you can sense a bias or an underlying point of view. Since I began following the back and forth of language issues in Canada, there has been at least one constant, our federal official languages commissioner. Through reports, news releases and media reporting, it is and has been very one sided. Sure, he is careful to add words like equality,  ensure bilingual capacity, linguistic duality and such, but take a look at his reports, there is an obvious lack of equality on promotion of English and an over promotion of French.

 

You don’t have to believe me, take a look at the federal website(s), news releases and media reporting. Also take a look at some French media, especially this one. http://www.lapresse.ca/le-droit/opinions/editoriaux/pierre-allard/201311/08/01-4708866-notre-commissaire.php?utm_categorieinterne=trafficdrivers&utm_contenuinterne=cyberpresse_B9_opinions_3866_section_POS1 Did you notice the part where a Francophone has observed the commissioner function being for the protection and promotion of French? And this Memo of Understanding with Ontario’s French Languages Services commissioner does nothing to create equality for each official language, which the federal commissioner should be offering. http://www.ocol-clo.gc.ca/html/release_communique_26112012_e.php Thank you Graham Fraser, you have united the Anglophones and Francophones on this issue.

 

Edgar Allen Poe has been credited with the quote “believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear”, and I will add, until you investigate for yourself. Canadians must be getting tired of political correctness, double speak, expensive programs, games and should question every expense, law, direction and policy.
