Anglo opposition city counselor in Longueuil Quebec treated like a dog

FOR RELEASE by November 23rd, 2013

When Bob Myles entered his office today he was greeted with a cruel reminder of the bigotry often shown to minorities in Quebec.
Upon entering his office today Mr Robert Myles was greeted with a desk adorned with packages of dog food, a woof sign and a French-English dictionary. Mr. Myles a fluently bilingual opposition councillor did not take this as a joke, but as part of the disrespect Anglo's are consistently being shown by the administration of former Bloc MP, Caroline St.Hilaire.
The City of Longueuil refused to condemn this action or comment. Please remember that it was the City administration that denied Myles office space last week. This is a deep affront to the both democracy and the Anglo fact in Quebec.
The anglophone and allophone communities have been subjected to numerous instances of racism, bigotry and religious intolerance over the past year due to the PQ's divisive policies. Never have we as a community been degraded to such an extent as to have one of our democratically elected opposition counselors be treated like a DOG.
We ask that this action be condemned and all individuals responsible be dealt with in a swift manner.
Bob Myles is quickly becoming an icon and a rallying point for democracy and diversity in an increasingly hostile Quebec. We ask that everyone stand behind Mr. Bob Myles in condemning this degrading display of injustice which threatens our democracy in Quebec

Let us create a new wall, the wall of separation between state and imposed culture

I would like to address your letter to the editor in defense of Bill 60 (Charter of Values) and Quebec living a "Jefferson Moment." Ny Times Article. Quite the combined effort. 

By the way, the crucifix you claim is being taken down will be moved to another room in the national assembly. Just thought I would clear that up.

 I find your letter quite hypocritical coming from a government that recently introduced a bill ( bill 14) that would have drastically reduced the rights of its own citizens. Here are the highlights of your proposed and recently scrapped Bill 14 that was a main focus of your PQ election platform that people outside of Quebec need to understand:

  • Revoking bilingual status if the population falls below 50%
  • Francophone military families would be unable to send their child to English school.
  • Anglophone CEGEPS would have to prioritize Anglo students over francophones
  • Language police would be able to SEIZE anything they believe is an offense against the charter without a warrant.

If you believe that the state should be neutral then why forcefully impose your culture and language on all the population of Quebec? What is the difference between the state forcing culture and language on its citizens or imposing religion?

You do not have a monopoly on culture in Quebec and depending on what area you grew up in or your background, we all were exposed to different cultures. Someone that grew up in Parc Extension, St Leonard, Ville St Laurent, DDO, Cote St Luc or Little Burgundy would have quite a different cultural experience then someone growing up in Saguenay, Lac St Jean or Quebec City.

So be true to your word and let the government maintain its neutrality and let your own citizens choose the culture they feel applies to them. Let us create a new wall, the "wall of separation between state and imposed culture."

We are sure Jefferson would approve.

Canadian soldier told that his daughter could not attend English school

By Mike Kane

We recently received a letter from a Canadian soldier that details intimidation and harassment by Quebec's Ministry of Education that nearly cost his daughter entry into English school. Below you will read details of the exchange that went on between Mr. Aumand and the person responsible at the ministry.

Mr Aumand's letter to PBTF:
The person who called me is Mister Fu Sun, he is the Designated Person of the Ministry of Education (Ministère de l'Éducation) and "personne responsable d'admissibilité à l'enseignement en Anglais" and confirmed by the English school board here in Quebec.

Mr. Fu Sun called the school board to get my contact information and lied to them on the phone telling them he only had a few questions to finalize our file as we filed under the military exemption status to send our daughter to an English School. Well, that was a lie, and the School Board apologized profusely this morning to me because of this and are taking actions to try and ensure he doesn't do this again, as according to them, this is not the first time he does this.

Mr. Fu Sun called me and told me that he needed PROOF that I would be posted outside the province in order to allow my kids the right to an English education, he wanted proof that I would be imminently posted. When I told him that the only time a military member gets proof is when we get our posting messages, that is the ONLY time we can confirm.  We get this approximately around the month of April of any possible posting.

He then asked me if I was aware that the law had changed, and that the exemption was no longer granted, I told him that according to my knowledge, that was only a proposed item in Bill 14, he said and I quote "non, monsieur (chuckle) vous vous trompez."

He was trying to convince me that the laws had changed on the exemption and that there was "jurisprudence".  I found out this morning, speaking with the school board that he was referring to a case where a military member a while back was ill, and because of his illness (post Afghanistan and illness related to the mission) he would never be posted, so, his request had been denied due to the fact that he would never be posted outside Quebec.  What Mr. Fu Sun is trying to do now, is create further jurisprudence to essentially require proof that a member will be posted within a certain time in order to obtain the right to send our kids to an English school.

He asked me on the phone last night if my daughter was currently IN her English school, when I said yes she was and that I had filed under my exemption, he told me, and I quote, "mais monsieur, c'est illégal, vous n'avez pas encore le droit lorsqu'on n'a pas approuvé votre demande"

When I asked who makes the decision, he told me that he was the one making decisions. When I asked him to cite the law that states that my military exemption had changed, he laughed and tried to change the direction of the conversation. This man tried to intimidate me and scare me into thinking that I was breaking the law so I could pull my child out of school myself.

Please spread this letter as far as you can so everyone is aware of the situation in Quebec. I would hope that this never happens to another military family.

Remain Honorable and Set the Example

Good evening fellow PBTF'ers,

We would like to thank everyone for sharing and liking our content over the past year. Our traffic has increased 125% these past two weeks and we have become one of the busiest sites delivering information and reports on the ground that local media may not cover. We thank you for supporting us.

That being said, we would also like to ask you all to refrain from name calling, slurs or profanity when addressing anyone or commenting on some of the content we post. We understand that since the charter has been made public tensions have been soaring, however we must never sink down to the level of the people we fight against. 

We are all better then that. Hit them with intellect and remain honorable in your responses, we all have to set the example. Many people keep an eye on this page and any derogatory comment may cause irreversible damage to the cause we all believe in. Please remember that the a majority of francophone Quebecers are against these laws and support us 100%. It is very hurtful for francophones that are on our side to hear these comments.

We would also like to address a very small percentage of people that accuse this page of creating division. We are not the ones that introduced a charter and language laws that segregate a good portion of the population and make Quebecers and Canadians born here feel unwelcome in their own home. 

We have been on the ground at both protests and have personally witnessed people afraid to leave a bank or walk anywhere close to a crowd of nationalists. This fear is real and we are appalled and disgusted that this can go on in our country. No one should be afraid to walk the streets out of fear of being harassed for their skin color or belief or even language spoken.

We also promise to never give up and we hope you continue to give us the support you have this past year.
