Ok, apparently I have to clarify the following; I do not think all Francophones are separatists nor do I believe all Francophones hate English speakers. I am simply pointing out if anyone feels the need to suppress any language; you and I are going to have a problem.
As for the person who thinks I am comparing Anglos to Martin Luther King Jr., again, you are incorrect. I was simply giving examples of those who came before us and fought against any form of discrimination. They refused to stand for it, and I follow that way of thinking. I will not stand for it either.
And yes, I realize Rosa Parks was told to sit in a different section of a bus because of her race and the English are not forced to do so. (Someone actually thought that was what I was implying.) I am not trying to devalue in any way the bravery these heroes showed through the immense amount of suffering they endured. However, when you are on your local STM bus, on your way to your office, friend’s house, or your home, the signs that surround you are all in French. And should you find a sign that has English on it, such as the emergency exit, I guarantee that the font is at least half the size. Is that not discrimination? Do I, as an Anglophone, not deserve to be able to read the emergency exit instructions as well as Francophones? How is that fair? Or safe, for that matter? I am certain many, if not all Francophones will agree with me, on that one.
So for those out there, who misunderstood my message, I hope this clarifies things. I fight toward a Quebec that is non-discriminatory and multi-lingual, and where language police are just a distant memory. This is what I stand for, and I'm truly sorry and saddened if I made anyone think otherwise.
Ok, so that should settle things, hopefully!
