French language militants found out when they demonstrated in front of Sleep Country Canada in Hull on Saturday. The call to arms across two giant Quebec unions and three or four nationalist organizations triggered an avalanche of support that some estimated at close to one hundred people. Sigh......
The sad parade of losers chanting slogans that absolutely nobody listened to, was tragicomical, the few customers that were around whizzed right by them, in and out of the store..
Most people were at home watching fellow Quebeckers win three gold skating medals at the Olympics, while the demonstration was on!
I wonder if the demonstrators gave a cheer when they found out the news?
Jean-Paul Perreault, leader of the organizing Imperatif Francais told Ottawa's le Droit newspaper that;
"We don't have any problem with Anglophones setting up to do business in Quebec, but they need to respect the linguistic and cultural environment of Quebeckers."
But his words were contradicted by one of his demonstrators who was carrying a sign that read "Ottawa Quittez Quebec"(Ottawa get out of Quebec)
Here's a video of the television news report.
