Posted on

Do I support any form of law that would restrict any use of the French language anywhere in Canada?

NO.

Do the majority of French Canadians support language laws that make the unrestricted use of English in Quebec illegal?

YES

Does our education system anywhere in Canada forbid the enrollment of any children in French language public schools, even though the finances of these schools are mostly paid for by Anglophone tax dollars?

NO

Do French Canadians support a system that makes it nearly impossible for most children, with the exception of a small number of English speakers, to be enrolled in public English schools in Quebec?

YES

Do laws exist in Canada (Quebec) that forbids communication in the English language between government and business?

YES

Can Quebecers be denied construction work anywhere in Canada?

NO

Are all non-Quebec Canadians denied construction work in Quebec?

YES

Are there laws in Canada that make that visible use of the French language against the law?

NO

How about Canada and Quebec laws on the visible use of English against the law?

Now this list could go on and on.

It’s high time us English people became aware who are racists and bigots in Canada.
