Back, Bettter And Bruised.

Hope you all had a nice Christmas. Speaking of which, remember when it wasn't a social faux-pas to say "Merry Christmas?"

For those of you interested, Pauline Marois of the PQ spoke to the Foreign Policy Association in New York earlier this month. The one where she said Quebec is "open" for business.

I agree pretty much with the sentiments on the threads here at the CBC.

See. What they don't tell Americans is that once you're here you have no choices. You can't do what's right for your business or kids because the language laws will prevent you. For example, your kids are in Grade 1? Too bad. In French they go. Now for some parents this may not be a big deal and good for them. But for others - especially ones being solicited by the province - it may be. Guy Carbonneau the hockey player got into a tussle with the state after he returned from Dallas. He wanted his kids in English school but he wasn't prevented from doing so. I don't know what happened there but that was the base of the argument

People come here and it's only once they're here they realize what they're up against. It happened to one of my workers. Had they known and were told up front they would have paid the higher immigration fee and gone to Ontario.

No one likes bull shit.

And so it is with businesses. Whatever reasons who decide to come, just be ready to face L'Office de Langue Francaise and their army or slimy snitches. If they hear too much English you will be fined.

No. I'm not joking. And with Bill 14, it's gonna get worse.


They tell me the PQ are a dying party so not to worry. In the meantime, they'll introduce bad laws that will stay on the books for a long, long time. I don't feel like waiting.

The sad thing is during the debates CAQ leader Francois Legault said to Jean Charest Quebec lags most jurisdictions on the continent for economic growth and education comparing the province to the American south. He was absolutely correct. Too bad his party sided with the PQ on Bill 14. They went ahead and voted for a mentality that puts them behind everyone in the first place.

Yawn. I smell another 'Quiet Revolution'...


Here's part of Mme. Marois-Defarge's bio at the FPA - taken from the Quebec government website.

During her 30 years in politics, Pauline Marois has contributed in many ways to the advancement of Québec. She has established laws, implemented policies, and promoted numerous projects, such as the Québec Water Policy, the drug insurance plan, the Pay Equity Act, the Balanced Budget Act, the Act to govern the financing of political parties, and the Charter of the French Language, in particular. She also created Québec’s first family policy, which led to the birth of many childcare centres, $5-a-day daycare, parental insurance, and several measures to improve work-family balance.

Today and in the years to come, Pauline Marois intends to be the “Premier of all Québecers.” Liberty, integrity, and trust are the values that will guide her in accomplishing this mission.

Blah, blah, blah. Isn't this the funniest thing you've read so far today?

Especially the last part. That lying little wench.

Quebec ISN'T about liberty. What have we bestowed in words of wisdom to our Western brethren on matters of liberty? Precious little.

They're about liberty for ONE segment of the population. Right now, we're experiencing "tyranny of the majority" in this province. And as we all learned from Mill, when you don't guard against it, your democracy weakens.

If Quebec was about trust, they would not sabre-rattle on language. They would back off and let citizens live in peace. They don't.

Quebec's values are slaves to insecurity. When you legislate punitive action against your OWN TAXPAYING CITIZENS, you have no values or integrity.

Perhaps, one day they'll grow up.

Take Bill 14 off the table and maybe, just maybe, we'll believe her.

Until then, they are who we thought they are.
