In a recent issue of the Pontiac Journal, we learned the Office de la langue Français is demanding the separation of French news items from those written in English. We enjoy the Pontiac Journal as it is – it is a well written newspaper.

For fun, ask your friends and neighbours about their family origins; you may find your great grandparents came from Germany, France, Spain, Wales, Alsace, England, Scotland, Ireland, Russia, Africa, etc. Ask what language they spoke and they will likely tell you that language is learned or changed to accommodate the people.
We have a beautiful mixture of people here in the Pontiac, where many are related or inter-married, living together peacefully and speaking the languages of their choice. Look again at the history of Europe; because of migration, we have learned that the citizens of England and France are the same people.
Language is learned as needed, but blood lines are permanent. The Pontiac Journal is enjoyed by many and no change is needed. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it!
