If there ever was anything good about Quebec, it's that they know how to deal with muslims.  (Jul 27, 2012 | post #20)

It's Time To REALLY Fight Back ~ Howard Galganov

I believe that it is the french who are jealous, angry and spiteful that they were not born as Anglos.  (Jul 23, 2012 | post #4)

The numbers don't lie :assimilation of Francophones is to...

I do not share nor do I condone Daryl's description of the Chinese. I will state that from what I do know of the Anglo Society, that Daryl's comments are not reflective of their views or values. However since it was you who brought up the Society, then it is also fair to mention the comments of Jean-Marie Nadeau in one of his articles in the Telegraph-Journal. +++++ French immigrants who wish to live in English are totally unacceptable and revolting to Acadians http://www.topix.c om/forum/ca/moncto n-area-nb/TE9AJM56 CJMT3ULD6 "Unfortunatel y, some of our French friends who come to settle here act like "colonizers. " They don't want to integrate into the Acadian community of "unfit, uncultured North American human beasts." For Parisians we'd be referred to as "pecnos" (peasants) or "ploucs" (slobs). These people feel it's better to integrate into the English-speaking community, of course for economic reasons. For instance, some - and not just anybody either - send their children to English school. Going about things this way can be seen as an insult and affront to the Acadian community. It goes beyond stubbornness; it's totally unacceptable and revolting. If these people want to live in English and raise their children in English, they should move to England, Australia, the United States or elsewhere in Canada. Of course there are other honourable, worthy French immigrants who have decided to live with us in French, by sharing their expertise and enthusiasm. We would like to see more of their kind. Several of these individuals are currently working for the SNA, CAIMM, in health, in the private sector, etc. Some even recently created the Association des Franšais d'Acadie to defend their interests with France while developing ties with Acadie. It's to their credit and we're very grateful. In terms of immigration, it seems increasingly obvious that we have more in common with the citizens of other colonized countries of the Francophonie than with certain French nationals. In this contingent, we find many friends from black Africa, and Maghreb and St-Pierre natives come to mind as well; they don't appear to have been infected by the colonizing virus. Even those from the former colonizing country of Belgium, and Switzerland, seem to integrate better. It's been very difficult for me to write this column, but you've have to be cruel to be kind. The days of Gaullist France, with its anti-American message aimed at supporting the growth of French in the world, and Acadie as such, are long gone. It even continued under President Mitterrand, even though the socialists weren't known for their devotion to "francophone " business dealings. And yet, Acadie was for M. Mitterrand what Quebec was for M. de Gaulle. The focus was on culture, the arts, teaching, thus transmitting that which was beautiful and good, in French. Perhaps it's time for Acadie - through the voice of the SNA - to have a frank, in-depth conversation with France in order to clarify once and for all its intentions and aspirations vis-Ó-vis Acadie. Much ambiguity remains in terms of Frenchness. In fact, the attitude of some French immigrants of our day, as well as some French government representatives, leads us to the conclusion that with such French friends we no longer need English enemies to lead us to our downfall." +++++ Are his comments any less offensive? Of course we should not forgot to mention notme's comments/beliefs about Jews. Like a good french Catholic and knowing his Bible, notme believes that the question about the Jews being God's Chosen Ones is still open to debate and that the french may qualify as the Chosen Ones. A good read on this is Holy Blood, Holy Grail,( The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail). I've also heard that in many NB churches it is proudly proclaimed that .." Jesus was an Acadian".  (Jul 4, 2012 | post #32)

Moncton to use friendly and subtle arm-twisting to encour...

Attention Canada Monckton ( Moncton ) New Brunswick is not a predominately french city. Far from it.The English speaking majority is getting fed up with this false description of the city. Non English speaking tourists should not be surprised nor offended if they hear "We speak English here".  (Jul 3, 2012 | post #5)

Rally for English Right to Work In New Brunswick

LANGUAGE LAW DISCRIMINATION RALLY ~ Fredericton, New Brunswick If you or someone you know has ever been discriminated against because you don't speak French or can't speak it well enough, then you need to join us on this day to tell the government that we have had enough. It is time for us to stand up for OUR rights as Anglophones and the majority! We will be protesting in front of the Centennial Building in Fredericton in hopes that our elected officials will listen to our concerns about the lop sided Official Languages Act. For the last 40 years there has been a steady systematic erosion of civil service position and public sector jobs for the majority in this province and country. On June 25th, concerned citizens, language rights groups & human rights groups will be rallying in front of the Centennial Building, 670 King Street, Fredericton from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm in an effort to bring attention and support to this issue. All concerned groups and citizens are invited to attend.  (Jun 24, 2012 | post #33)

Paul ,where have you been hiding ? Oh , I just noticed, you're from Quebec. Europe has proven that multilingualism and multiculturalism are failures. If Quebec will not allow them then why should the rest of Canada? English is the lingua franca of the civilized and developing world.  (Jun 21, 2012 | post #3)

Time to reconsider official bilingualism

It's nice to see comments from all accross Canada here on these issues. Slowly the word is getting out and people are starting to wake up and getting involved. We still have a long way to go, but this time the journey will be completed.  (Jun 21, 2012 | post #21)

Time to reconsider official bilingualism

What started out as a supposed Good Will Gesture by Canadians has turned into a monster that continues to grow unchecked.We gave them an inch and now a mile is no longer enough. Bit by bit Canadians are realizing just what a horrendous mistake official bilingualism was. It has produced no unity, no fairness at a cost of billions. When the discontent of English speaking Canadians finally boils over, we will have one hell of a bloody mess. You can push people only so far before they rise up and take whatever action is necessary to regain their basic rights.  (Jun 20, 2012 | post #17)

The new council did not waste any time getting to this issue. This must be more important that the Codiac Bus problem. Yup, the hell with public transit, we need bilingual business signs more than a decent Bus service.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #2)

Language discrimination at Oromocto Public Hospital

If the Oromocto Public Hospital gives you a hard time over this, then a sit in or occupy of their offices may be necessary.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #7)
