French extremists only exist in Daryl's mind.
According to anglo medias, the anglo politicians and anglo academics, there are hopefully only a few anglo extremists that nobody wants to hear about. They make noise but they will never have their say in public affairs.
Alward government, elected mainly by anglophones, does not want to deal with this extremist minority. Parrot's case has proove that.

the "party line" is bullshit. They should do what their constituants want them to do, not what some group who hands out 8000 dollar rolexes to politicians want them to do....

7 of 11 on the board are English. Do you even look at the facts of anything or just make shit up as you go along?

I'd like to see your proofs... What are you exactly refering too? Your policy draft on language at work made for consultation purpose? Are you refering to this poor copy of the federal language at work policy (yes that's what it is... and yet the federal service is not franco dominated as stats from the public service commission shows us)??? That's your ''proof''?

Wheich brings us back to your statement about the board and the make0-up of its board members....and in the style of your lovely quote...hey moron, did you even read who was actually on the board of the review?...Predominatly English people.

By learning anything other then the stupid backwards rhetorics you've been hashing out on this side would already be an improvement!!! But I guess your mind doesn't expend to anything further then "Me English, so everything else bad"

Not to throw fuel on the fire, but try to even get info on the cost of things
like the Frankophone Games, or how many
federal jobs in provinces like Alberta
must be given to "bi-lingual" people, aka
native speakers of French (as they test your "bilingualism" in French)... very few Anglophones quaifly for those jobs.
