Quebec's Language Police are at it Again
Hello everyone! A very warm welcome to you all! The video I have selected for this post is a beautiful, soothing clip entitled "Moonlight Lake" (therapeutic spa music). Enjoy!
Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog will know that I don't often post things about politics or any negative events, but I felt the need to post this! I watched the local Montreal news tonight on CTV and was royally annoyed by this story, which I am sharing the link to!
So much of this has been going on where the OQLF (Office de la Langue Francaise, Quebec's "Language Police"), have targeted businesses in regards to the lack of, or not enough of, the French language in their businesses. This particular story, however, which I have provided the link to above, is the first where they have actually gone after a business in reference to their Facebook page! Sigh! Please feel free to share your thoughts on this story.
Many people including myself are sick of all this (including a good number of French speaking people). I am fluent in French and have no issue with communicating in French; however, nobody likes to be forced to do so, and nobody likes to be made to feel like a second class citizen if they speak in English.
The photo I am sharing today is one that I took a few years ago. You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.
Thank you all so much for visiting me here! I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.
