Thank the good Lord Saint John The Baptist Day is finally over. I am so tired of the listening to one hypocritical Quebec politician after another from the mayor of Montreal to the premier of Quebec talking about how during the Fete de National, the francophone citizens and the government of Quebec try to make the non francophone citizens of this province feel comfortable, so that they will come out to the event and participate in the festivities. For the rest of the year the Quebec government and the majority of the francophone citizens Quebec treat the non francophone Canadian citizen residing working and trying to raise their families in Quebec as if they were some type of animal feces they stepped in and are trying to scrape off of the bottom of their shoes. Are they truly this ignorant, or do they thing that the non francophone citizens of Quebec are so stupid that this expensive week-long party paid partially for with non francophone citizens tax dollars supposed to make the non francophone citizen of Quebec forget that:
- They are a people who being stripped of their right to communicate in English one of the 2 official languages of Canada?
- The mayor of Longueil has vowed to see that no English is spoken by city councillors in at city council meetings in response to one city councillor speaking bilingually when it is his turn to speak at meetings out of respect for his English constituents in the borough he represents (Greenfield Park); this in spite of the fact that no law in Quebec, or Canada is being broken by him?
- Their the francophone citizens of Quebec are standing by not only allowing, but actually applauding the closing of English schools and school boards?
- English is written smaller on all posted signage, by law even where it is a warning of imminent danger.
- They are not guaranteed by law the opportunity to communicate with the government of Quebec’s employees in English no matter how important the situation is, because the Quebec Language Charter makes it legal for their Quebec government employees to refuse to speak English?
- Quebec finds it necessary to have language police?
- Even in the hospital there is no guarantee that you will be served in English, one of the 2 official languages of Canada?
I don’t think that this expensive week-long party paid partially for with non francophone tax dollars will make the non francophone citizen of Quebec forget any of the humiliation they face on a daily basis at the hands of a francophone population that wants them wipe of the face of the Quebec landscape or forcefully assimilated into the francophone culture and lifestyle, similar to what was attempted and failed on the indigenous people of this land.
Having said all of that it is not hard to understand how Quebec government and the francophone after listening to Prime Minister Harper give his speech in Beauce Quebec where he said that:
- He and his party understood and even admired Quebec’s fight and the methods the government is using to ensure that the French language is secure and as always can count on him and his party to continue to respect their right to do so and in their jurisdiction.
- He and his party share the same values as the government of Quebec and feel that any one taking and oath should have their face bared and as always can count on him and his party to continue to respect their right to do so and in their jurisdiction.
- He and his party (a)see no threat to Quebec being and independent country within Canada and (b)went as far as to say that he and his party see Quebec as such and (c)what the Quebec government does as far as linguistic policies and making sure that its distinctive society status remains intact do whatever they want to their non francophone population as long as the Quebec government does not try to separate Quebec from the rest of Canada and as always can count on him and his party to continue to respect their right to do so and in their jurisdiction.
Mulcair whose New Democratic is in my opinion a federalist party infested with MPs who managed to get themselves elected during the last election in Quebec claiming to be federalists, but who have repeatedly:
- Refused to speak English in the House of Commons and in Committees while demanding that Unilingual English MPs in the House of Commons and committees be forced to learn and speak French.
- Voted in Quebec provincial elections for separatist parties.
- Donated to the campaigns of separatists in Quebec provincial elections.
Thomas Mulcair ambitious plan to become the next prime minister of Canada is heavily dependent on getting the Quebec vote and that means getting his fake federalist MPs from Quebec re-elected and that brought the leader of the federal NDP scurrying to Quebec to join in the separatists celebration known as Saint Jean The Baptist/ Fete de Nationale. I believe Mulcair has never spoken for the rights of the non francophone Canadian citizens living, working and trying to raise their children in Quebec, because it is political suicide to him and his party. So I guess that the non francophone Canadians residing in Quebec only escape from the oppression of the francophone population and government of Quebec is to just go with the flow and enjoy the expensive week-long party paid partially with non francophone tax dollars, or move to English Canada.
Justin Trudeau leader of the Liberal Party of Canada showed no better judgement and ran to Quebec to celebrate this separatist expensive week-long party paid for partially with non francophone tax dollars; pretending not to here the calls for separation from Canada. Justin who claims to be for equality and fairness in all things for all Canadians never once has mentioned the injustices that Canadians living in the Canadian province of Quebec suffer daily at the hands of the Quebec government and their francophone neighbors.
When the leaders of the three most powerful federal parties in Canada are willing to see nothing, hear nothing and do nothing about the loss of rights of Quebec’s non francophone Canadian citizens guaranteed to them and to all Canadians under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Constitution, but instead choose to hand out food at barbeques and give campaign speeches aimed at getting votes rather attempting to change bad governmental policies, I know why and how Quebec thinks that it can get away with all that it is doing to its non francophone population.
All that is left for me to do now is thank the good Lord that Saint John The Baptist Day is finally over and the pretending that this expensive week-long party paid partially for with non francophone tax dollars will make the non francophone citizen of Quebec forget any of the humiliation they face on a daily basis at the hands of a francophone population that wants them wipe of the face of the Quebec landscape or forcefully assimilated into the francophone culture and lifestyle, similar to what was attempted and failed on the indigenous people of this land.
