For those of you who are regular followers of my blog, you will know that I don't rant often, and that my rants are very few and far between. However, I really need to express my feelings on a matter that royally annoys me. Here in Quebec, the first language is French, and in many cases, and what Quebec is steering toward, only French. Last night on the news it was mentioned that they want big box stores such as Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire and Best Buy to change their names to be more descriptive, and to have French in their names. For example, Canadian Tire might become "Pneu Canadien". Wal-Mart might become "Magasin Wal-Mart", etc., etc., ad nauseum. Yawn. The government is even talking about helping those retailers to make the change by offering some money to do so, and by doing so these stores are showing a 'respect' for Quebec and the French language. In my personal and humble opinion, I think they should 'knock it off' with all this talk of language and focus more on health care and safety, and put the money on that instead of all this ridiculous and, again, in my opinion, unnecessary and insignificant pettiness. There, I got to say what I needed to get out. Thank you for listening. :)
