I guess the government doesn’t remember the last time excessive laws were put on the French language; all the businesses that closed and the jobs lost. Because most of the Pontiac is on the border of Ontario, it’s necessary that it be bilingual.
They once said: forget about working in the bush, let’s support tourism. If the
modified Bill 101 passes, nobody will come to visit. There once was a couple from out West that came here, but they were frustrated with the lack of English signs, so they went to Ontario instead. If we want tourism, we have to help visitors get around, which requires English information.
If you have a business, you have to accommodate your clients, otherwise they will go somewhere else.
The government should worry about us working together with our neighbors,
not dividing us. I thought the war against language, religion and colour was over long ago, but here it is surfacing again to separate us.
If this bill moves ahead, I hope the Pontiac is left out of it. We want to move ahead, not backwards.
I’m going to continue speaking French to Francophones and English to Anglophones: it’s my right.
I sure hope they don’t stop the Journal from publishing English articles, as I’m sure they will try.
