Kathleen Weil is not an Anglophone
It seems our National Assembly member for NDG Kathleen Weil doesn't like to be referred to as an anglophone. In an fun article in the Montreal Gazette, Don MacPherson cuts her up badly.
According to another article in Le Devoir, she already prefers the French pronunciation of her second name and so may we suggest that she could further camouflage her English roots by asking everyone to use the French pronunciation of her first name- "Cat-leeen". She should refer to her husband as "Michel".
While she can change the way her name is pronounced she can't hide her past.
Some people when trying to impress potential employers, embellish their CV a little. In Weil's case she conveniently leaves out the time spent working for Alliance Quebec, an anglo rights group. Take a look at the whitewashed description of her past on the Liberal Party Website.
Et tu Katleen?
