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

Recommended Posts

The main reason why the English language is so popular is because of its simplicity. ...

Actually, it's due to English Imperialism and expansion. Look at the former colonies of France - all French speaking. And South Africa - mixture of Dutch and English because the Dutch and the English were there. And when Japan occupied China for three years, they started teaching Japanese in school.

In Canada, it was the British Loyalists escaping from the American Revolution that brought a lot of the English language to Canada. Then the Natives were forced not to speak their own language.

In terms of simplicity, there are other languages much more simple.

You must mean 'as much as Quebec City hates the fact of being in Canada'.

You do play both sides of the coin, over and over and over again.

I forget... all we Frenchies all have the same opinion. whatever.

One of this forums rules stipulate...'personal attacks are the sign of the unintelligent'.

Attack some more, moron.

Legislating a twisted OPINION is fairness?

This could be true in commie land.

Don't keep us in suspense, list your reasons.

You already give them each and every time you attack Quebec's language laws. Not my fault if you are so clueless that you cannot see that you propose the same thing.

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

You will never get it. Whatever.

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.

Oh surprise, a new idea.... A new geography: Amos, Amqui, Sherbrooke, Rimouski, Saguenay, Sainte-Marie, Sept-Iles are not in North America. :lol:

Only a fool would not recognize that FACT.

I know who speaks what. I also know the issue is who is allowed to speak what and when. Only those who don't get it miss THAT fact.

And for GOOD REASON!

People who get it also know it's not the only Canadian language, for VERY GOOD REASON.

Indeed, some people, at least, must use English in France, Denmark, and the United States. But, so what?

Attacking a racist language policy does not constitute a personal attack.

Protecting a majority de-facto language from corrupt racist minority language polices, protects its users and the functioning of Canada's de-facto majority English language.

Forcing Canada into a corrupt state of linguistic chaos should be prevented at all cost.

No, but some of your opinions are racist and some pertain to language policies.

You haven't attacked any racist policy. You've attacked policies of the federal and Quebec governments that pertain to language. That attack takes the form of demanding the federal government impose on all of Canada the same linguistic policy as that of the Quebec government, only for English instead of French. By complaining that Quebec language laws are draconian and unconstitutional, yet asserting, at the same time, the same kind of laws should be applied nationally as a solution to bilingualism, you prove yourself to be both irrational and hypocritical.

Indeed they are.

Linguistically they account for very little and have proven not to have any kind of impact on the English language.

This proves Quebec has failed to freely propagate the French language.

I know who speaks what. I also know the issue is who is allowed to speak what and when. Only those who don't get it miss THAT fact.

As far as that goes, anyone in Canada can legally speak whatever language they want.

Normally though most Canadians adopt the English language as their language of personal free choice.

People who get it also know it's not the only Canadian language, for VERY GOOD REASON.

People also know English is both propagated and spoken freely all over the country while the French language is spoken freely but is also imposed by discriminatory federal, provincial or municipal racist language policies.

New Brunswick is the only exception where both the English and French languages are provincially official but not without linguistic problems.

Maybe you think racist language policies is a good thing, I don't.

They do, as much as Quebec language laws you want to imitate while changing the world French to English in them then make them even worse.

Make up your mind. You claim "personal attack" everytime someone attacks YOUR racist language policy.

Forcing Canada into a corrupt state of linguistic chaos should be prevented at all cost.

Yet, chaos is exactly what you promote.

They just shouldn't be allowed to use it in commerce, unless it's English, right?

Yeah right. Whatever.

You haven't attacked any racist policy. You've attacked policies of the federal and Quebec governments that pertain to language.

You have left out one, municipal and not only pertaining to Quebec.

Any policy that implements and establishes a minority language into the workings of a free flowing majority language is a racist policy.

That attack takes the form of demanding the federal government impose on all of Canada the same linguistic policy as that of the Quebec government, only for English instead of French.

Treat everyone equal.

The same linguistic policies for all, or terminate ALL racist language policies, including Quebec's with court action.

By complaining that Quebec language laws are draconian and unconstitutional,

And racist.

yet asserting, at the same time, the same kind of laws should be applied nationally as a solution to bilingualism, you prove yourself to be both irrational and hypocritical.

Propagating racist minority language policies to induce bilingualism is racist and terribly discriminates against the users of the English language and cripples their access to normal English speaking jobs in majority English speaking provinces.

Federal, some provincial and some municipal government are in linguistic collusion in a effort to implement racist language laws.

Racist laws have nothing to do with bilingualism.

Federal style bilingualism has failed and provinces outside of New Brunswick REFUSE to designate themselves officially bilingual.

That is what the problem is....no province wants or needs official bilingualism especially when provincial taxpayers are FORCED to pay for bilingualism policies and pay to give English speaking jobs to Francophones.

Neither does Quebec want any form of bilingual policies.

They are the ones who initially implemented racist laws to protect French resources and French jobs from being accessed or taken by English speaking Canadians.

Go ahead... dig your own hole deeper and deeper. Whatever.

More than 200000 people were on the Plains, including many from the U.S. I am sure those were not aware they were supporting racist language policies during an un-Canadian celebration... err I mean helping humiliate Quebecers by attending a show by a British artist... whatever.

Paul McCartney hails his Quebec City concert on his Website (story)

I know there were some people who were not too happy about an English-language artist being part of the celebrations but you know music is an international language that helps bring people together.

Hear hear.
