CTV had reported on Feb 14 2012 – Liberal MP Justin Trudeau is facing a barrage of criticism for suggestions that Quebec separation could be deemed acceptable given the politics of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Now prime Minister Trudeau is trying to divide the French and English population once again by stating Ontario is anti French when he fully knows that the Mcguinty / Wynne Liberals ran Ontario into the ground when the Ontario Liberals took office in 2003 Ontario’s debt was roughly 132.6 billion dollars and as of March 31 2018 the provinces debt was predicted to be $348.79 billion dollars with a 15 billion operating deficit for this year.
Ontario’s new premier Doug Ford had some very tough decisions to make in Cancelling 3 new universities and one of them just happen to be a French University which former premier Wynne promised just before the provincial election to buy votes. Ontario already has 10 universities where French Course’s are offered.
In Ontario the French can be served in French or English at all government offices , Hospitals but in Quebec you rarely get served in English or at all and they even have the French police to ensure all English signs are half the size or smaller than Quebec signs posted. Here is a example of what the French police write you up on and fine you for if you don’t comply – a small diner in Quebec City had the name grilled as part of their name and logo as they served grilled cheese sandwiches they were told to use the french word for grilled. I didn’t here any comments from Trudeau or from any other liberal on this stupidity or on Bill 101 put restrictions on enrollment into anglophone schools in Quebec and now lets be very clear the French population in Ontario are far better treated than the English population in Quebec.
Also for Trudeau to stir up hatred once again on the issue of the Ministries of Francophone affairs being put under the Ombudsman where there is no cut in service or job cuts you have to think his reasoning is to create hate and fear for political gain.
Also Trudeau stated a Canadian is a Canadian so why does Trudeau and the liberal party treat the French population far better than the English population maybe Trudeau should be talking to the Quebec premier about giving the English population better rights and better service in Quebec.
