I think that you should at least learn how to use spell check.  (Aug 5, 2012 | post #2)

I'm just pointing out what the rest of the world has acknowledged years ago. For some reason french Canadians refuse to open their eyes to the truth. If you want to believe that then it's fine, but please understand that the RoC does not and is tired of playing 'make believe' with you and paying through our noses for something that we no longer wish to be a part of.  (Jul 1, 2012 | post #3)

Rally for English Right to Work In New Brunswick

Before COR imploaded upon itself, it was the official opposition in the province. The new party will NOT make the same mistakes. Once word gets out of the sellout of the current parties, a new party will slip right in.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #21)

Ontario Court of Appeal Rules Against Galganov and Brisson

2012 06 15 Verdict is just in from Ontario Court of Appeal concerning Galganov/Brisson vs Russell township's bilingual sign bylaw. The court ruled UNANIMOUSLY in favour of RUSSELL TOWNSHIP. 1. That the township had the right to pass this law ,although language is supposed to be provincial, not municipal. 2. That even though the law INFRINGED ON THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE, there was reason to pass the law to promote/protect the French language. Howard Galganov and Jean-Serge Brisson have been fighting the 2008 Russell Township bylaw that enforces both French and English signage on businesses in the four small towns of the municipality. Galganov argues that the bylaw is yet another example of the creeping imposition of bilingualism on the predominantly English-speaking population of Canada. Brisson says enforcing bilingual commercial signage dictates how a business can market its services and sets up the expectation that service will be available in both English and French, which may not be the case. They also argue that it’s not the government’s place to tell businesses what language should be on their signs and that doing so infringes on their right to freedom of expression. The two language-rights activists are appealing an August 2010 ruling by the Superior Court of Ontario that Russell Township has the right to enforce bilingual signs. http://www.topix.c om/ca/moncton-area -nb/2012/06/ontari o-court-of-appeal- rules-against-galg anov-and-brisson  (Jun 15, 2012 | post #1)

Bilingualism isn't worth the cost

To quote from Stephen Harper from 2001.. “In those days,the promise was that bilingualism would lead to a new country–more united,more fair, truly bilingual. It didn’t work. In fact,Canadians aren’t much more bilingual today than they were back then. According to the 1996 census, for example,the proportion of Canadians who are English-French bilingual is 17%. But,as far back as 1951,long before we had heard of Trudeau,that number was well over 12%. Even this puny growth in official bilingualism ( at enormous long-term federal expense) is doubtless exaggerated. Many anglophones especially have pursued immersion programs and are thus encouraged to consider themselves bilingual. But with no deep economical, social or cultural reason to master and maintain the French language, the skill simply atrophies. This is not a negative comment on the quality of French immersion teaching or the earnestness of the taught. It is simply difficult –extraordinarily difficult–for someone to become bilingual in a country that is not.”  (Jun 11, 2012 | post #63)

protest rally "equality for all"

WHEN: MAY 26 SATURDAY 1 PM WHERE: Cornwall Community Hospital, 840 McConnell, Cornwall, ON WHY: ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN DISADVANTAGED BY “LANGUAGE” DISCRIMINATORY HIRING PRACTICES NEEDS TO ATTEND. DO IT FOR YOURSELF, YOUR KIDS,YOUR GRANDKIDS….JUST DO IT!!!!!!! Cornwall Ontario Nurse Christopher Cameron and his group are organizing another protest for Saturday May 26 in front of the Cornwall Community Hospital. Mr. Cameron is also presenting his petition of over 3,000 signatures to MPP Jim McDonell at his Second Street Wednesday May 23, 2012 with the hopes of the MPP bringing it to Queen’s Park to initiate a Provincial investigation to the way that the Cornwall Community Hospital is employing nurses and front line staff based on Linguistic requirements instead of qualifications. He has pointed out to competition that has seen nurses promoted or hired and then sent for training rather than nurses given language training. A core of the protest also lies in the fact that the hospital checks for English qualifications on site, but forces French Language testing via an outside agency with what protesters have described as artificially high standards which are precluding many from advancement in their positions.  (May 14, 2012 | post #1)
