En bref - Offensive contre l'invalidation de la loi 104

Le mouvement de défense du français prend de l'ampleur. La Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste lance une nouvelle offensive contre l'invalidation de la loi 104, qui découle d'un récent jugement de la Cour suprême du Canada et rouvre une brèche dans la loi 101.

Un grand rassemblement intitulé Québec vs Cour suprême: la loi 101, notre seule voix, sera animé par le comédien Denis Trudel, dimanche après-midi au Monument-National. Au programme: une lecture de textes ayant marqué l'histoire du débat linguistique au Québec depuis la défaite de 1760 jusqu'au récent jugement de la Cour suprême. Vincent Bilodeau, Dominique Pétin et Patrice Coquereau seront notamment de la partie.

    La loi 104

    Après 30 ans de loi 101, il y a toujours des gens qui veulent s'assurer
    que leurs enfant pourront facilement choisir de vivre pratiquement
    n'importe ou en Amérique du Nord, sans problème de langue. Pour ça
    il faut être à l'aise pour converser en anglais. Pas une nécessité
    absolue, mais drôlement utile. Le système scolaire du Québec fait
    qu'un gradué de l'école anglaise sera plus couramment bilingue que
    celui de l'école francaise. À ce jeux la triste réalité est que si on
    s'assurait que les gradués du système français parlaient couramment
    l'anglais, il y a de forte chance qu'un nombre grandissant de francophones glisseraient vers l'anglais parce que c'est plus simple,
    plus court et à la longue plus facile. Comment s'y prendre pour que
    parler français, utiliséer le français relève plus de la fierté de montrer
    sa "supériorité" intellectuelle que d'une loi qui l'impose comme les impôts?

    Bill 104 - La loi 104

    April 11, 2010


    The 9 avril, 2010: « En bref - Offensive contre l'invalidation de la loi 104» , and the Gazette article "Groups pressures Libs. over Bill 104", April 8, (link below) remind me of a story that happened a few weeks ago at a car dealership.

    My flame decided to end the lease of her car and buy a new one. Naturally, I went with her to pick a model and basically support her as she was wheeling and dealing with the salesmen... a car was picked and, to make a long story short, she would get it in a couple of days...

    Because of a prior engagement, I could not be with her when she was to finalize things and pick up the car....With a wink in my eye, I told the salesman - a French fellow - I hope you take care of my lady properly or else I would write a letter to the editor about the establishment... I said that in the most friendly way with a smile as I pointed to the nearby coffee table which had a lot of newspapers on it...I said to the salesman, take a look at The Suburban newspaper that was lying on top of heap and mentioned that my name was "Chris"...and that was that...

    Two days later, I get a call from my partner...She is very upset at the dealership because they had "prepared" the wrong car... It was the wrong colour... Partly forgivable because it was dusk when we chose it...Anyway, the problem was solved.... As we were leaving, the salesperson told me something revealing....

    He said that he had read the letter to the editor that I had mentioned a couple of days prior... (I had completely forgotten about it). Also, note that I did not mention the topic of the letter or any hint of the subject.

    The published letter is in the Archives of The Suburban - March 10, 2010 - "On 104: Let the kids alone". ( www.thesuburban.com )

    He told me that he had tried three times to enroll his three children into public English schools and failed each time because of the law. Hopefully, he said, the rules will change as his wife was expecting a fourth child...

    I said that it had been reported, on more than one occasion, that there are hundreds - if not thousands - of children who are eligible to attend English schools but parents chose to enroll them into French public schools...and that is what this is all about - Parental choice...

    Anyway, after a short discussion on the matter, we parted, scratching our heads - my flame, the salesman, and me...

    Merci, Le Devoir, for allowing me this space to express my thoughts.
