It's a typically Anglo-Canuck attitude to regard French with disdain by thinking that it's only useful to read the other side of the cereal box, as if 200 million people on 5 continents didn't speak it. That's a pretty bold statement coming from a Texan. What do you know about typical anglo canucks...

First, Canada is not a federation. It is a Confederation and, more importantly, a confederation of colonies. Provinces are, as Macdonald said, "Municipalities writ large" They do not have the powers they claim - constitutionally. Canada is a federation. It's not just because we speak of '...

Fertilized eggs and corporations are people huh... What next? Can my toaster be a person too? Can my cat be a person? Unlike the above it actually has a pulse... I don't believe that corporations are people, but if an organism has human genetic code, then yes, it is a person. I just think the mothe...

In Canada, legal personality begins when the child is born living and viable. Before that time, in civil law, the child has no legal rights. In Dobson v. Dobson , a husband tried to sue his wife in the name of their child who was born with handicaps because of a car accident which the mother had bee...

I am not a lawyer... It is clear that you are indeed not a lawyer, since you display a clear inability to compose a coherent argument, to distinguish nuances between concepts and, most importantly, to provide proof to support your crackpot statements. One example of those was a Boy adopted from New...

I think I pointed out, andy, that the majority of Francophone Quebeckers never supported any of this. I also pointed to the fact that more than 600,000 Anglophone Quebeckers were forced to leave Quebec - the greatest displacement of a population since that of the East Germans, btw, after WWII. Engl...

If you're a citizen of a country, you should follow their laws. A popular attitude, but one that I find to be un-American. Some laws are bullshit, and you should not follow those laws. Bad laws should not be followed. In any case, I haven't broken any law. It's not against the law to not file if yo...

The fact that my kids can read, write and speak mandarin is a bigger benefit to them, than being able to read the other side of the raisin bran box or deal with third world sub Saharan Africa, which my eldest can do(the cereal box not the African thing...been there done that and I understand why hu...

I'm a dual-citizen by birth.... One's citizenship is not a privilege; it's a birthright. Ummm k? So which citizenship do you consider your God-given birthright? I never said anything about G-d. In any case, I received both citizenships at birth from my parents, so in that sense they are both very m...

Perhaps, but it's not like your exposure to non-French languages like German and Ukrainian pushes you in any way to learn those languages either. I don't care where you are in Canada, the opportunities to learn French if you want to are abundant. I know plenty of people out west who have learned ho...

I'm a dual-citizen by birth. I grew up in the US. I haven't filed a U.S. tax return since I left the U.S. I know that one may be required to, but I just don't agree with that. Now they want your banking information too? Jesus. I don't vote, I don't use my U.S. passport. I benefit from no U.S. consul...

There are basically no subjects that one cannot study entirely in French and, where English might be needed for certain reading materials, one does not need to be able to speak and understand English fluently to be able to understand what is written. Therefore, your assumption that a high level of ...

non-negociable And here I thought English was your first language. Therefore, your assumption that a high level of education requires that one have a high command of English is an utter fail. you prove yourself wrong with the following sentence Point is, past a certain, quite low level of federal p...

sorry to rain on your persecution party, but give the job to them. But, somehow I doubt that someone that skilled in the public service, or in an in demand profession would be a unilingual francophone anyways. Education and training would demand a high level of fluency in English There are basicall...
