The hell with the PQ


It is not ridiculous...we are in Fkn Quebec, where we have no other issues other than fuck around with people who are trying to make a living...Here in Quebec there is no coruption, we don't pay high taxes, we do how ever have a welcome tax when we buy a home, we do get screwed on our drivers permit.... So do not be hard on this unbelievably stupid people who run our province. They are so self centered that when you arrive in Quebec city it says "BIENVENU A LA CAPITALE NATIONAL"...national capital of what???? These people have never traveled accross our country, every other province in fully bi- lingual. It is about time that we stand up to these idiots and kick them to the curb...well they did do one thing right, They changed the saying on our plates, It was La Belle Province...But at least Je M'en souviens...

welcome to the republik of quebec

call it pasta, noddle, or whatever. stop wasting money on words that we already know.

Ottawa is a bilingual city, or forced unto because we are capital of Canada!

We ain't forcing Quebec to have bilingual signage. We are okay to point at the food and use sign language if needed.

That's actually hilarious. I just love the world problems that some countries are facing, and this is the stuff that makes Canadian news. Just ridiculous.

Complete stupidity!!


All of this banning of English words is nothing but bull. As far as I'm concerned if Quebec wants everyone to speck nothing but French in Quebec then we should let them become their own country. That's what they really want any way. Other wise they shouldn't have to right to be banning any language especially not English! If they don't want to be apart of Canada any longer I say just let them go. How ever as long as they are apart of the rest of our fine country they shouldn't have the right to tell people witch words they can use in English. If that was any where else people would be scream racism. It’s all ridiculous and we can be sure the stupidity will continue on for a long time to come.

Just wow

I don't even know what to say. It does seem like a huge waste of effort and money for something that won't make a lick of positive difference in people's lives.

1984, much?

If you haven't already read 1984 please go and do so now. It may as well be a blueprint for this bs.

i hope


i just hope there is an end to all the garbage that is going on here i was born and have lived here all of my life and love and get along with everyone regardless of language, religion and race but it is getting very difficult to keep living in a province that doesnt want me here because i choose to speak the language of my choice even though i speak both marois has also decided that she wants all people to speak only french on the job so if you work at a mall or with the public and are caught speaking english even on your break you could be fired now that is not right and i thought i was living in a country where i was free

All the more reason


That's all the more reason to kick these idiots to the curb, we have taken enough abuse from them. They raise our taxes just so they can fill their pockets. They cannot fire you for speaking english on the job or anywhere else for that matter, this comes from people who CAN NOT speak french to start with. In the words of the Quebecois themselves..."ON VA AVOIR DU FUN" withy this
