Government Should Never Have To Protect A Culture
People I know and the treatment they received here
in Quebec recently due solely to the use of Canada's other Language
(English) has not impressed me. The Language Police'sconstant barrage of idiotic
proposals and wasted resources that so many of
us have known as reality for a very long time are now being brought to light
at long last. I am sickened, astonished and quite ashamed to be honest.Its disgusting discrimination and worst of all the oppression of the
Francophone people of this province.They are being deprived of the freedom choice and education paramount to being part of a global
society or any global business progression.
When everyone on this planet want to provide their children with the gift of a second
language, ironically Quebec is forbidding it. When the rest of the planet is moving
forward Quebec is taking steps backward.When we are working feverishly every day hoping and praying to build acceptance and
working towards global unity of every race religion and culture
relishing in every small step forward toward global cohesion, the Quebec is
breeding bigotry and hatred. It's neolithic quite frankly.
They are making asses of themselves
and blackening the eye of a country I love. I am proud of who I am and my
heritage. I do not need ANYONE or ANY government to maintain it for me.
I am quite capable to do so for myself and my family. I love the
people of Quebec and feel truly blessed to have been a part of what is Quebec
culture while I've lived here.The incredible people and culturally rich
individuals of this province do not need either to have the French Quebec culture shoved down their throats. They don't need to be
told they don't have the right to provide their children with a second
language. They do not need to be monitored by the language
police and threatened for speaking English in their office or theirbusinesses. The last time I was outside my front door, the people
of Quebec that I came in contact with were as smart as any Canadian I know and could make their own choices. Quebecker s are perfectly capable in taking
pride in their language and culture without being mandated to do so by the government.
I am not just an Anglo, I can more then get by in a second language. However the longer I
live here amongst this bigotry and oppression the less I have
the desire to use this second language as I have been made to gag on so
many many times. My heart goes out to the life long residents of Quebec.
Hopefully the choice of culture and language will one day belong
to the people as it does in the rest of our country. I for one truly
believe after my years living here that the pride of the people are
all that is needed to preserve the the incredible culture of Quebec.
