Shades of "Grand Frère" AKA Big Brother .
Guest posted a topic in Provincial Politicsor perhaps the third Reich when it comes to squealing on your neighbor. Only in Canada you say...a pity. Seems to me burning Anglo books and more trampling of our flag is to be expected. Still, our money is still accepted and those 'traitorous' MP's expect to be paid and pensioned. I'm not going to Quebec ever again...So there! [quote “There are no language police. It isn’t possible to organize this in Quebec,” said Diane De Courcy, the minister responsible for the French-language Charter. “What is possible is for every Quebec citizen to act as sentinels of language.” Several measures in the legislation are aimed at bolstering the use of French in the workplace. Businesses with 26 to 49 employees will be subjected to the same constraints as those with 50 or more employees, meaning they will be required to communicate with their workers in French. The bill also prohibits companies from requiring English in their hiring and promotion practices except when it is absolutely necessary. “Employers should not systematically require bilingualism,” Ms. De Courcy said. “I have included in the bill a provision that prohibits employers from demanding the knowledge of another language other than French unless it is necessary to do the job.” ] http://www.theglobea...article5993445/
