Quebec language police demand Anglophones write “Québec” instead of “Quebec”

Rebel Staff
 

The Quebec Language Police have their latest target: Anglophones who say “Quebec”.

A new report by MtlBlog points out an official government page demands that in English“one must write “in the city of Québec” and not “in Quebec City” or “in Quebec”.

The page even included a list of English words they don't want Quebec residents to use.

Will the language nonsense in Quebec ever cease?

…. ahhh , I’m so stupid sometimes. I meant French Canadians… Admire them. Not the actual French, they are screwed. Sorry about that.

Things were/are bad enough when it was/is just English-French relations that we had to worry about.

Now it is a whole other ball game. Sorry Canada, into the trash you go.

You do have to admire the French however for their determination to keep their language and culture. I think we English should be more like them.

The sad part is that QB is isolating their own people, due to their stubbornness, and need to be unique. PET gave them control over any federal government position, so you think they would be satisfied, but instead the insanity continues. They will be unique, until they become extinct due to their own arrogance, and foolishness.

So do a fast and large and growing number of people.

Never with a capital "K:

The entire province disgusts me.

Sounds llike Quebec’s own version of ‘sharia’ law.

I am reminded of a line from Shakespeare’s Othello…. “Are you wise?”… (Desdemona about to get strangled..) Just keep it up Froggies – you have no idea how close you are to the rest of Canada telling you to BLEEP OFF once and for all…

Let’s get rid of Notley and send all the west coast big city tree huggers on a tropical vacation, and while they’re away have a referendum on Western Canada separation. Then we won’t have to deal with Quebec stupidity any more. (Sorry. Ontario. You have Wynne and Trudeau and you’re on your own)"

I’m with you. Best way to clear Vancouver is to cut off the power, water and any use of oil based products as people like Sean the troll are against anything that relates to those issues.

Sigh Quebec, this is so passe’. Get over it already!

Who cares – quebec nazis can force feed their crap all they want – training kids to speak a “dialect french” that is useless everywhere else in the world.

Quebec is a shithole and is a financial liability to the ROC – separate and get lost quebec – quebec is a useless and meaningless existence.

Quebec is losing the battle! Is is completely surrounded by English-speaking people in other provinces and the United States. English is the language being used in a lot of international situations.

But there is still hope with the influx of refugees and immigrants! Perhaps a few of them will acquiesce and use the language of the “pure laine.” That is if there are any “pure laine” left in the province once our Canadian Cultural Genocide by the federal government is complete!

That is why over one million English fled Quebec and when they left they took their company head offices with them. When I was living in Quebec I over heard a French family say " We got rid of the mausee anglias now we replace them with the mausee cauchan referring to the back immigrate from Haiti and other African nations" No wonder the Anlgos left

Who cares? Just ignore them. I don’t care. If you live in Quebec, you deserve everything that gets done to you. You asked for it. You voted for it. If you didn’t vote for it, you also didn’t bother to flee. Plenty of places to flee to. Quebec is never going to get better. Why are you still there?

Why would we expect anything more from “the” most useless, counterproductive bunch of government parasites on the continent? And when you think of all the completely useless/counterproductive agencies, that’s quite a reputation.

“Will the language nonsense in Quebec ever cease?” Yep! Right after the transfer/welfare cheques cease. Losers!

I have already been doing this for a while and only see it as an issue for computer users whose keyboard settings are set to US English rather than the more-convenient Canadian French. It might be wrong for them to try to police such a thing but it looks sounds a lot cooler to say “Québec” rather than “Quebec” in a conversation and looks more pleasing in text as well. Besides, some of us Québécois want to distance ourselves from the culture dumb enough to vote a twat like Justin Trudeau into power.

I wonder if the same rules apply to new Canadians Isis supporters.
