Massimo has been accused of fabricating information pertaining to "pastagate" and pictures have been created of him with text aimed at destroying his character.
The letter clearly shows that the OQLF had requested that "pasta" be translated. Pasta is an international word and it is very clear to everyone that this word DOES NOT need translation. Any attempt by the nationalists to continue seeking justification for their actions will only lead to further ridicule internationally.
We also believe it is deplorable that the historic Italian community who have contributed so much to Montreal and Quebec are insulted and degraded in such a racist xenophobic fashion. If anyone disputes the contributions Italians made to Quebec we suggest they read the following article : http://www.memorablemontreal.com/accessibleQA/en/histoire.php?quartier=4
We also ask that people report these pages to Facebook for hate:
Boycottons le Buonanotte: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycottons-le-Buonanotte/550259068352094
Quebec Francais: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Qu%C3%A9bec-fran%C3%A7ais/156743514375142?ref=ts&fref=ts
Below you will find the letter that was sent to Massimo Lecas proving the word "Pasta" was requested by the OQLF to be translated and also examples of the hate directed towards Italians in Montreal. We will add more pictures as we find them.
Putbacktheflag https://www.facebook.com/putbacktheflag stands behind the Italian community in Quebec and will not accept this racism directed at the Italian Canadians at ANY other cultural minorities.
