Quebec's French language office targets English at PLAYGROUND

Rebel Staff
 

This is not a satirical article. The OQLF has its next target in its sights and its a children's playground in St. Leonard.

According to CJAD, the OQLF received a complaint from someone who visited Parc Héber and noticed a plastic playground structure with nine spinning cylinders depicting nine planets.

The planets are written in multiple languages including French, English, Japanese, and German.

Problem? The names of the languages is written in English only. This is a violation of Bill 101 which says signage must be prominent in French only.

The St. Leonard borough says they weren't aware of the complaint until a reporter asked them about it. They did say that the playground structure came from an American supplier and that could be part of the problem.

Christian,
If I was going to learn French, I would learn real French from France, not frog bumpkin Quebeconese that nobody in the world understands or cares about.

It’s a dead dialect that will be gone in a hundred years.

J’ai tellement lu de merde dans les commentaires ci-dessous que ça ne m’étonne pas que les québécois soient écœurés de se faire cracher dessus par une bande de trou-du-cul anglos et qu’ils veulent fermer la porte du fédéralisme à sens unique. L’ignorance de l’histoire d’un certain Glen Craig est révélatrice du bas niveau mental de certains. Les acadiens qui ont été déportés ont été arrachés à leurs familles à la pointe d’un fusil ou d’un canon, leurs maisons brûlées et leurs animaux tués. Les anglais peureux et lâches qui ont quitté le Québec après les deux référendums ont quitté de leur propre chef avec tous leurs biens et familles. Je n’ai jamais entendu un anglais du Québec actuel se plaindre de maltraitance ici. Je ne suis pas de ceux qui se mettent à genou devant les “bullshitters”. J’aime mieux mourir debout que de vivre à genou.
And if you don’t understand a fucking word in french, it’s about time for you to get some instruction. The most important treaties are still written in french because this language is precise and complete. Raise your IQ a bit, it will help.

Yep
Big government, big unions, big taxes – national socialists (nazi’s) thrive in this just nanny state crap

I agree, like Ontario, Maritimes, and all of Canada! We now are seeing this in Alberta of all places! In France they have strict language laws, that forbid the corruption of French. Quebec is the same, with their Country Bumpkin French.

Yes in France their language is being corrupted with British English here are a few examples when I visited France in the past!

We seem to have a lot of French Language Experts here at the Rebel Media, do you speak FRENCH to back these claims!

And French is not an official language in Canada, but DIALECT FRENCH IS AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IN CANADA – yes if you speak quebec french in Paris, they will not understand you.

Like Dialect Colonial Canadian English compared to British, Scottish, Australia..etc..

I was in Toronto visiting one of my Buddies and he had a guest visiting from Britain and he stopped the host in mid-sentence and said I don’t understand could you repeat and use Queen’s English! The host turned to him and said well excuse me for using Colonial Canadian English!

English is the international language of the world and it will stay that way!

Yes I agree, during the Baby Boomer years it was French because it was the International Language that the UN used!
In Quebec the new generation are learning English because it is the International Language of the World!

I saw an article last week, I think in the Postmedia Sun chain, that the language National Socialists of Quebec were investigating Trip Advisor decals as being too English!

Yes that is correct and the French Language Media Blasted the the government bureaucrats for wasting time and money on this! Also, when they tried last summer to have Pasta removed from restaurant Menu, the majority of Quebecers found this to be Insane!

One province has power and jurisdiction to take any measure…no matter how absurd…to protect it’s language and culture…and yet that province continues to send politicians to Ottawa intent on destroying all trace of my culture and heritage….it’s enough to make a fellow think ….oh never mind.

Now thats pretty funny when we look at the Electoral Map and see how many Liebranos seats are from English Canada!
A lot of English Quebecers and the Ethnic community in Quebec voted for the Liebranos and continue to support them! I was at a Super Bowl party on the weekend with English Montrealers and they mock me for being Conservative and following the Rebel Media!

French Quebecers Voted in the last election for NDP but the Conservatives got 9 seats from French Quebec Ridings! 3 more than the last election! How can this happen?
The French Media Bias and Harper bashing is twice as much as the English Media!
What happened was a 5min discussion on the Niqab! Boom! NDP Orange Crash! LOL! I agree with cutting off Eastern Canada oil and western separation as a means to kill funding to socialist Unionized gouvernment Employees!

Its nice to see the Racists Rant here!
Shame on Rebel Media using Quebecers to push this Seperation Agenda !

By the way, next time you are attending a Hockey Game please refrain from singing O Canada, it was written by a French Canadian in 1880 and Translated in English in 1908.

My Favorite Hockey Team!
TEAM CANADA!

Back in the 1970’s in Montreal there was a gay Francophone entrepreneur named Gaetan who operated a hair salon called “Chateau Gae” …which passed muster with the language police and a tanning salon called “GAE tans” which did not…he was advised to re-name it “Bronzage Homosexuelle”….He vowed not to comply but I never found out what happened next.

Has there ever been a study comparing how many Anglophones left Quebec after the first and second referendums as compared to the numbers of Acadians deported to Louisiana?

We give the frogs welfare money so they can bitch.

No surprise here.

As I recall they tried to tell an Italian or Chinese restaurant to change their menus to french. Would that mean “Egg Fu Yung” would be called “Fu Yung d’Ouef?” It would be interesting to tell them that we are changing our menus to call “Filet Mignon” by it’s English translation of “Dainty Fillet.” It would also be fun to tell them Chicken Cordon Bleu and Veal Cordon Bleu are actually Swiss dishes, not french.

I knew a guy from Quebec who visited Paris back in the late1980’s. He was very disappointed at the treatment he was given by the average Parisian. He said that they criticized him for the way he spoke French and when they found out he was from Quebec he was given a dose of contempt. Gee, I wonder where Quebec got their attitude from?

The French language is doomed to go the way of Latin, it will eventually die on the vine. In France they have strict language laws, that forbid the corruption of French. Quebec is the same, with their Country Bumpkin French.

English is the international language of the world and it will stay that way. The reason that it is so strong is that it adapts, it accepts foreign words, adopting them and using them until they become English.

China teaches English as a compulsory second language, for all students.

What’s really wrong is that we in Alberta are paying for somebody’s wages in Quebec to enforce this draconian crap.

I saw an article last week, I think in the Postmedia Sun chain, that the language National Socialists of Quebec were investigating Trip Advisor decals as being too English, never mind that it is the same decal a traveller will anywhere in the world, including France. I can imagine Trip Advisor’s diplomatic reaction to the National Socialists demand to have special Quebec decals…to give the advice of not travelling in Quebec.
