Gilles Duceppe embarrasses himself internationally
The letter warns the lucky recipients "that very soon Quebec will be voting in a new referendum on sovereignty."
That may come as a big surprise to Pauline Marois and the Parti Quebecois who have promised the exact opposite.
Nationalist fantasists prattle on...Blow hard Georges Le Gal continues to promote his make believe world of Quebec by demanding that newcomers be denied Quebec citizenship if they can't speak French, notwithstanding that there is no such thing as 'Quebec citizenship'.
Yves Chartrand, in an article edited by Mr. Le Gal is furious that people wear clothing emblazoned with English words and for the fact that English can be heard, smack dab in the Plateau Mont-Royal, the bastion of French radicalism in Montreal. Horrors! He also demands that a linguistic war be declared immediately.
Rejean Labrie another prolific author on vigile.net also expounds on his version of a 'Fantasy Island-Quebec' by proposing that only Francophones be allowed to vote in a referendum.......
Quebec power couple to return to Bye-ByeYou might recall the controversy over Radio-Canada's(French CBC) New Year's eve show in 2008 that drew a furious reaction because of a black joke about Barak Obama and a skit about sex-abuse victim Nathalie Simard. Read an account HERE.
Véronique Cloutier along with her hubby Louis Morrissette were co-producers of the show and wrote the skit that mocked Ms. Simard. It seems that the public didn't appreciate the humour, considering that the real life pedophile who sexually abused Ms. Simard as a child, is Cloutier's real-life father.
It's a bit confusing, maybe this can help;
Apparently, the exile is over and they will again produce this year's show. It seems that Quebeckers miss their Bye-Bye show and that there isn't anyone of sufficient talent available to produce it.
All is forgiven and forgotten. The couple has likely been taken back with the proviso that they do no more 'nigger' jokes and that they leave poor Nathalie Simard alone.
Con man is latest French language defender/hero?
French language militants are hailing the victory of career con man Stéphane Marleau who won his grievance against Corrections Canada for not providing him with a French language newspaper while incarcerated in the Kingston Penitentiary, in Ontario.
He's now complaining that his medical file isn't in French and that the computer keyboards are exclusively in English. He also wants his rehabilitation course to be provided in French. He also complains that because no one speaks French he can't get the prison job that he wants.
Mr. Marleau has a fraud history stretching back years and and is presently in jail for romancing and defrauding a Quebec woman out of her life savings. LINK (French)
Perhaps Corrections Canada might consider a less costly solution to the 'French" problem. Instead of going through the lengthy grievance process and expensive remedies, they might just ship the intrepid con man to Donaconna or Port Cartier, maximum security prisons located in Quebec!
Andrei Markov assailed for not learning French
Let's just be polite and say that he is linguistically challenged.
Montreal anglo reporter Ted Bird took exception to the reporter pissing on Markov's big day.
"There are long-simmering resentments at play from which even otherwise celebrated hockey heroes are not exempt, and hobnobbing with a scarlet-clad Mountie in front of a Canadian flag after swearing allegiance to the Queen isn't the goodwill gesture to some that it is to others." LINK
