Sir Paul McCartney to play on Quebec City's Plains of Abraham

Recommended Posts

A few asked that since the taxpayer was paying Sir Paul's fee, why wasn't the concert telecast on the public broadcaster. Very good question!

Probably because broadcast rights (to Billy Shears) would drive up the cost to the moon......

As for broadcasting the concert, my understanding is that this kind of event is frequently broadcast many months after the event. But then again, I might be wrong.

Sure....but the right to record a concert could cost much more than McCartney's fee and would be owned by McCarney and or his agents

The 400 hundred years since the birth of Québec.

So this is truly a Quebec celebration and has nothing to do with Canada.

So if it has nothing to do with the country of Canada why are tax payers of Canada funding this event?

Maybe nobody understands the government's corruption because it doesn't exist anywhere but in your own head.

Oh sure, the feds rewriting Canada's political history to accommodate and cover their corrupt tactics is all a figment of the imagination.

It is obvious you have swallowed hook line and sinker and are part of their dumb, dormant, robot like loyal followers.

This is painfully apparent, especially relating to your fanatical obsession with the Monarchy and its application in Canada.

The ministers of the Crown are all still accountable to the House of Commons - yes, that body elected by us.

The feds are all part of the same gang continually covering their own tracks.

Does the word dysfunctional and incompetent ring a bell?

Obviously you were never a federal public employee or you would immediately understand the problem.

Again, you're just whingeing because nobody's changing things to the way you want them.

This is a typical reply from one who is loyal to a totalitarian type government.

Is "whingeing" another new word of yours? Or is it simply a typo, the type you use to degrade and humiliate other posters around here.

You want official bilinugalism struck down? Get off your ass and start a national movement.

Oh look, another typo.

A national movement relating to bilingualism would be virtually impossible due to many years of federal collusion. So why even mention it?

You should know if a movement of this type was initiated the leaders would immediately be portrayed as racist and trying to tear the country apart.

Whining on an internet forum certainly isn't going to do much.

Oh look again, another typo.

Participating in a debate with views that you do agree with is not whining.

If seeking a much higher level of federal, provincial, municipal democratic initiatives translates to 'whining' in your book, then you must be in agreement with the high level of political oppression that exist here in Canada.

Yes, that's called politics.

It does. First I think of you, but, I suppose you mean the politicians. What does the dysfunctionality and incompetence of politicians have to do with supposed flaws in the system? Its us who elected these dysfunctional and incompetent individuals.

Obviously you were never a federal public employee or you would immediately understand the problem.

No, but I've dealt with them, and they're quite incompetent and dysfunctional on their own.

This is a typical reply from one who is loyal to a totalitarian type government.

So, the belief in free and democratic government, therefore, is expressed by continuously whimpering about how bad things are?

Is "whingeing" another new word of yours?

Australian colloquialism; means whining, complaining.

A national movement relating to bilingualism would be virtually impossible due to many years of federal collusion. So why even mention it?

Because that's how you could get what you keep demanding. That you say action is impossible only further affirms that you are only ever going to sit and bawl about how crappy things are. You want to be a victim.

You should know if a movement of this type was initiated the leaders would immediately be portrayed as racist and trying to tear the country apart.

Maybe because the leaders of such a movement would be just that.

Oh look again, another typo.

?

Nobody says it is. This answer, though, glosses over the fact that you aren't debating, you're yelling about all the things that bother you and refuse to let any other opinion, let alone simple fact, get in your way.

If seeking a much higher level of federal, provincial, municipal democratic initiatives translates to 'whining' in your book, then you must be in agreement with the high level of political oppression that exist here in Canada.

Again, a lovely straw man. Nobody ever said wanting change was whining; complaining and never doing anything about it is whining. Where have you ever, once, proposed any democratic initiatives? When are you going to get off your ass from in front of your computer and start some? Never, obviously, as you've already decided such moves would be racist. And, frankly, I'd agree, though calling them bigoted, not racist. As has been pointed out to you elsewhere (though, god knows if you ever pay attention), your idea of democratic initiative is to see the English language and British culture imposed on all inhabitants of Canada; ironically, the exact thing the souveraintistes have done with the French language and culture on all inhabitants of Quebec. So, not only are you a whiner, you're a hypocrite, too.

Not all of them.

Okay, yes. The Prime Minister and the rest of Cabinet are, though. If the PM loses the confidence of the House, all the ministers of the Crown should be dismissed, including those who sit in the Senate.

What can i say? I do not understand what does not exist.

Oh look, a typo.

You have a university education and you do not know the English language in Canada is the de- facto language of commerce and common communication?

Then you have you have just verified your bigot status and bias towards English speaking Canadians.

Nice by the way, that you acknowledge that I can speak whatever language I want to speak when...

you have whined about immigrants who speak their native language at home

Whining is the wrong word.

Being critical of immigrants, or anyone else, who speak their native foreign language and cannot properly speak or understand the English language is defending Canada's linguistic competence relating to a competent, functional country.

you are constantly whining about regulations that allow (rightly) citizens of Ottawa to speak in either English or French when obtaining municipal services

Whining is the wrong word.

Being critical relating to the word 'services' that detrimentally changes the characteristics of the majority language of Ottawa by way of a racist policy, for the purpose of stealing jobs, is not whining.

you have said that Ontario should proclaim English to be the sole official language of commerce (in other words, no use of other languages in commerce)

For the sole purpose of protecting the de-facto majority English language from being dismantled by unscrupulously defiant arrogant sub-cultures.

That answer is all you have, and will ever have.

People make intelligent well thought out rebuttals and all you can do, since you have never won an argument in your life, is to try and be critical of a "typo" .( which in and of itself is incorrect.)

But then with your geriatric grasp of pretty much everything in life , it is all we can expect. Your answers are always ..." relating to the dysfunctional" "as respects " and so on and so on.

We get it, some half pint Quebecois punched your lights out, metaphorically or not, and you, instead of being a man, just whine and cry like a little baby.Mooommmmmy !

But thats okay, considering your geriatric ways, Depends wearing is how you will go out. I suggest you change them now, you smell, again, just like your posts.

All of these have one thing in common......try and figure it out, you know, after that load has been changed.

Then you have you have just verified your bigot status ... (oh my a typo)

Kyiv, Ukraine, Quebec City.(Kyiv...where is that?In "OldManconfusedland?")

Dancer, your so damn cool, ("your"..oh my how stupid can one be?)

Why don't you move to a country that is accordance ( accordance? You mean accordian? Oh my)

control the post topic to in order to censure (wha?...speak english old fart)

It is not a coincendence (what word are you trying to say? Go ask your nurse for help)

Your just to funny. (you mean "you are"...thanks, better than being an idiot, try it sometime)

Im too tired already and I was only on page 6.

Oh my, "typos" .....from the one who wants to make his arguments about typos....Yes leafless, no one but you would be stupid enough to try that.

I know I know, I'm a fag that should die of AIDS. Or am I a French bastard today?

Special offers for you buttercup.... http://www.depend.com/?WT.srch=1&WT.mc...p;iq_id=5468720

Yep... "making a fool onf oneself by expression bigoted opinions against democracy, equality and fairness" is more accurate.

For the sole purpose of protecting the de-facto majority English language (...)

Which is in very good shape, thank you very much

from being dismantled (...)

How does one dismantle a language? :lol: :lol: :lol:

by unscrupulously defiant arrogant sub-cultures.

Nice excuse for a racist, socialist, Nazi-like discriminatory language legislation.

Just as the show started, someone walked on the stage waving a big Québec flag. A troublemaker? a protester? a disgruntled "separatist"? None of the above. It was Sir Paul McCartney.

On the big TV screens on each side of the stage and on the background, the fleur-de-lys appears often. Just before singing "Yesterday", Sir Paul changed vests to wear one with fleur-de-lys.

Not once did he use the word Canada. And no dead maple leaf.

Québec is in Canada? Tell that to Sir Paul.

Nothing like playing it safe.

This ensures he safely returns home to England with all those cool millions.

Bwa-Ha-ha-ha-ha.

How does one dismantle a language? :lol: :lol: :lol:

By utilizing the 'Charter of more Wrongs and less Freedoms, Charter of the French Culture and racist bilingual policies coupled with federal, provincial and municipal propaganda and their legislative powers.

And presto, you have successfully destroyed the discriminatory, horrible, dominating English language that was forcefully implemented by the free will and freely chosen by the LARGE MAJORITY of Canadians as the de-facto language of Canada.

That's a new Charter you are writing?

(...) Charter of the French Culture(...)

Didn't find anything like that in the Constitution. But that's not the first time you don't get what's in it.

(...) and racist bilingual policies coupled with federal, provincial and municipal propaganda and their legislative powers.

Your policies and those of the Quebec Government (aka racist policies) are not bilingual. And yours are a threat to the rights of Canadians, but not to the English language.

And presto, you have successfully destroyed the discriminatory, horrible, dominating English language(...)

Sorry to burst your bubble... It's not because you think that of about every language on the planet rhat other people think the same of English. If you got it, you'd know I don't.

that was forcefully implemented(...)

A good way to describe the way French-speaking Canadians outside Quebec were denied their rights in times past. And bang on on the well-known attempts to destroy Aboriginal cultures and their Canadian languages.

(...) by the free will and freely chosen (...)

Yeah right, the Natives were never forced to attend residential schools, and the Frenchies were begging for their schools to be closed.

(...) by the LARGE MAJORITY of Canadians as the de-facto language of Canada.

FACT is... English is spoken by more Canadian languages than the other Canadian languages.

No it is the one you and people like you use to destroy the English language and its culture.

Strange indeed, isn't it?

Which makes one wonder its how it can even be considered legal in Quebec.

Your policies and those of the Quebec Government (aka racist policies) are not bilingual. And yours are a threat to the rights of Canadians, but not to the English language.

Why don't you speak in a coherent manner?

Sorry to burst your bubble... It's not because you think that of about every language on the planet rhat other people think the same of English. If you got it, you'd know I don't.

Well, you better wake to to the fact that you are living in North America where our only neighbours use the same language that dominates Canada...the English language.

Only a fool would not recognize that FACT.

FACT is... English is spoken by more Canadian languages than the other Canadian languages.

And for GOOD REASON!

The main reason why the English language is so popular is because of its simplicity. After all, if even the anglo-Americans can speak it, it has to be simple.
