The annoying pimple, aka Bill101 and Bill14, became awfully hard to cover up on the PQ’s “Manhattan project” called: Quebec Government Office in New York.
Not only is Bill101 enforced in Quebec, the Parti Quebecois is pushing for a stronger Bill101 with fangs. For those of you living outside of Quebec, these laws are aimed at eliminating English on commercial signs, within businesses and forbidding citizens to attend English schools. The new Bill14 would strengthen those laws, provide the language minister judicial type powers and provide increased power to the office de la langue française, Quebec’s “language police”
We received word that these very laws that the PQ push hard in Quebec have become a very touchy and dirty topic when details were posted on their New York website; perhaps preventing potential American investors from understanding these laws fully. Quebecers fed up of the stagnant economy and limited growth these laws breed, found it rather hypocritical that the PQ would encourage New Yorkers to invest in Quebec, knowing full well the limitations of these xenophobic laws.
Comments of concern posted by Quebecers regarding these laws were removed promptly by the Quebec Government Office In New York; the comments section have since been “disabled”. Here is their statement:
As previously noted, we encourage discussion, dialogue and the sharing of ideas, but we will not tolerate personal attacks, insults, comments written in caps, walls of text, hate speech etc.
We left the majority of the comments on our page and did not ban anyone because we want the community to be able to make up its mind about the value of such comments. Nevertheless, we have temporarily removed the user recommendation box because of spam. We hope this makes sense to all of you.”
Reality is, they blocked and removed all the comments because citizens in Quebec posted truthful statements and facts that show the ugliness and bigotry that the current and past governments of Quebec have made law. Factually, Quebec violates all its citizens’ human rights as per the constitution of their country and as per the UN. In actuality, Quebec has a language police that harasses its citizens. Quebec is slipping further and further into a xenophobic, single ethnic province that drives out all other types, instead of the vibrant multicultural and multilingual place it has always been. Their censorship and attempts to hide the truth only reinforce this. To any New Yorker... yes, it is true. Local business owners and Quebecers are suffering. The language police is real; enforcement of French only and harassment of our local Ben & Jerry’s owners for labels such as “chunky monkey” and “peace and love”, forbidding employees to converse in English around the water cooler, ripping off motivational signs from walls, that display the word, “courage”. Furthermore, the choice of language in which children will be educated in, and the potential to forbid adults the option of what college they can attend, and plenty more is at jeopardy for your northern neighbors.
As proof, we have taken screenshots of the “majority” of comments they claim to have left up. Please take a look at their page and see if you can spot them. You will find they have all been deleted and along with the recommendation section, disabled. We will leave it up to you to decide whether these comments were truthful or not.
We say to the current Parti Quebecois government: You may try to conceal that pimple, but true and honest Quebecers will always be able to see past the thick make-up and expose it. So try and mask it all you want, divert everybody else’s attention by batting your fake eyelashes, you are not fooling anyone. If you are as honest as you say you are, we challenge you to be transparent and explain on your New York page all the details of bill 101 and the new proposed Bill14. There is nothing to be ashamed of, right?
