‘Ontario Expands Canada’s Linguistic Hypocrisy’

More divisive ‘group identity’ politics from the Ontario government. Having bilingual provincial services in other provinces while Quebec is unilingual is simply hypocrisy and discrimination:

“The creation of a stand-alone ministry of Francophone affairs drew mixed reactions from political pundits and opposition parties on Monday, after Premier Kathleen Wynne released details of a mini-shuffle in her Cabinet.

“The Premier announced the ‘Office of Francophone Affairs Ontario’ will now be a full-fledged ministry…
{“The provincial average of Ontarians whose mother tongue is French is 3.9%.”}

“Marie-France Lalonde was already responsible for francophone affairs and will now become the minister of the file, the Premier said…

The creation of an autonomous department gives even greater weight to the fact that the Ontario government recognizes that the francophone population, its culture and its language, are a dynamic part of life in Ontario,” Lalonde said. {Nonsense…}

“The ‘Association Canadienne-Française de l’Ontario’, in the Windsor-Essex-Chatham-Kent region, welcomed the news Monday morning. The association’s president, Elizabeth Brito {That’s not a Francophone name}, said southwestern Ontario is still fighting for services it deems ‘essential’ for Francophones.

We have a history of fighting to be able to educate ourselves in French,” Brito said.But at the health and the legal level, it is equally important. There are still gaps. We need health professionals and lawyers who speak French to help francophones in their daily lives.”

{NO! Ontario Francophones — like ‘moi’ — need to learn to be fluent in English, and money should only be provided for that purpose…}
