The True North... strong...

...and almost free...

• MONTREAL • The playgrounds, hallways and cafeterias of Quebec’s largest school board will soon be French-only zones as authorities move to silence other languages, even during recess.

In a bid to ensure its 110,000 students master French, the Commission scolaire de Montréal has announced a new code of conduct declaring French de rigueur at all times during the school day.
Just another step on the road to cultural fascism.

They are afraid if they learn english they will see how corrupt Que is.
Are they concerned that those french parents are using english at home. Will they expel anyone speaking english. Will parents be fined. What a stupid idea.

OMG, they are setting the govt up for millions in lawsuits in about 30 yrs.
Re the residential schools, notice that no one has to prove they went to one, being native is enough.

Ahhhh, the Quebec french language fascists are at it again. Keep everyone stupid and locked in some backwards french language tribalism and ensure for yourselves the power that isolation, language tribalism and fear ensure. How distinct. Who knew that Peeair Trudeaus indoctrinated dream of creating a solely french speaking state would be so... dictatorial.

Take the story and replace "French" with "English" and see how many seconds go by before the howling begins.
My Grand kids are not allowed to ride on the bus with the French immersionitas because, horrors, they might speak to them in English.
Stupid is as stupid does.

cut quebec loose today... and tell them to start printing up their own money & passports.

that is, of course, after they pay us their per capita share of the national debt and hand back all those tanks, guns & jets.

later, pierre.
