Hey did you hear? We have  two new Saints from Quebec, no, it's not  Lucien Bouchard or Jacques Parizeau nor  Ren Lvesque or Robert Bourassa and  definitely not Bernard Landry (above pictures are in order from left to right) but here check it out! Pope Francis elevates 2 Quebecers to sainthood Note: All are but a waste except for The Great Rene Levesque, he should have been sainted a long time ago by the Separatists as the real Quebecois who inspired equality for all.

Here's an editorial from The Suburban, a weekly paper, largest in Quebec

Time for a history lesson on Quebec

April 22nd, 2015 - It is not even an election year, but the leadership contest in the Parti Qubcois has produced some strident rhetoric and strange outbursts. Particularly from Pierre Karl Pladeau. We take the liberty this week to offer some history and perspective to the prospective candidates. Over the past weeks M. Pladeau has yelled En franais at a Francophone band singing an English song; apologized for anti-immigrant remarks that made him sound like a repeat of Jacques Parizeau in 1995 with his ethnics and money comment and just last week suggested that corporations should perhaps be fined if they participated in anti-indpendentiste activity. Shades of Maurice Duplessis and the padlock law. One wonders if M. Pladeau would do the same to pro-sovereignty unions who have been so active. But then they are not happy with him after his numerous lockouts.
Quebec has permitted the perpetuation of the big lie through generations of political leaders who have exploited it for electoral gain and greater provincial power regardless of what party they came from. They have all used the philosophy of divide and conquer, creating a francophone majority riddled by self-doubt driven by jealousy of others self-belief. The philosopher George Santayana once wrote that those who forget the mistakes of the past are condemned to repeat them. In Quebec one can easily say that those who perpetuate lies about the past are condemned to be imprisoned by them. And that is at the heart of the Quebec malaise. The philosopher George Santayana once wrote that those who forget the mistakes of the past are condemned to repeat them. In Quebec one can easily say that those who perpetuate lies about the past are condemned to be imprisoned by them. And that is at the heart of the Quebec malaise. It is a society that has permitted the perpetuation of the big lie through generations of political leaders who have exploited it for electoral gain and greater provincial power regardless of what party they came from. They have all used the philosophy of divide and conquer, creating a francophone majority riddled by self-doubt driven by jealousy of others self-belief. The heart of the lie that the Parti Qubcois keeps perpetuating is that some great injustice was done to a native francophone people in their terre natale their native land by the English who conquered Quebec in 1763 and supposedly kept the French under their heel. The reality is that the French came here as imperialists for the King of France and conquered the true native people, the aboriginals. The English came and the French and aboriginals and gave a third of this land to the Hudson s Bay Company. And what was the francophone power that signed the Concordat of 1763 that basically said to the English, You take commerce. Give us our people to educate and well keep most of them down on the farms? The very same French Catholic clergy that every francophone leader in Quebec since Lesage once denounced, yet whose traditions are today protected to the point that one would be hard-pressed to find a politician agreeing to have the crucifix from the National Assembly removed even while they proclaim the need for laity and accommodation in our public life. Arguments for Quebec sovereignty, or the cultural supremacy of francophones based on nativist claims, have no moral foundation in the history of this province. Yet no political leader has spoken these hard truths to Quebecers in a very long time. It has left this province at the mercy of demagogues who have made this rich jurisdiction non-competitive in the North American reality and made so many of its citizens constantly on the lookout for someone, or some group, to blame for their own failings. Quebec has a very real progressive political patrimony running through its history. A patrimony that began with Louis-Joseph Papineaus emancipation of all minorities in 1837, 20 years before Britain; continued through Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaines experiments in responsible government in 1856 that were the first in the British Empire; went on to Cartiers internationalist and inclusive vision that made Confederation possible; Lauriers  policies of a just and lay society at the turn of the 20th century; Jean Marchands heroic struggles against Duplessis and Jean Lesages Rvolution tranquille that produced arguably the finest cabinet in modern times. This history is what makes Quebec distinct.  Distinctiveness does not rise from some perceived injustice to native francophones. Not on some misplaced fidelity to sang et langue blood and language. And certainly not out of the fear-mongering of extremists who see cabals of ethnics around every corner that they consider have no right to a say in Quebec s future. Let those competing for leadership in Quebec remember the words of the late Sen. Jacques Hbert that, The real two solitudes are not between anglophones and francophones. The real two solitudes are between the half of Francophones who are the heirs of an unmatched progressive political patrimony, and the other half who still practice the politics of La grande noirceur. M. Pladeau and his cohorts will have to decide which side of history they will choose to be remembered for.

Look what France is saying 

 "Must drop ineffective' blockade against English language"

France should end its blockade of the English language, since its "generous" contributions have enriched rather than endangered French, according to France 's culture minister. Fleur Pellerin warned purists bent on defending the French language that the struggle was counterproductive. "The French language is not frozen. A language is always evolving," said Ms Pellerin, a digital economy expert born in South Korea and a fluent English and German speaker. "Some languages like English today, or Italian in the past have been particularly generous in offering hundreds of new words to French," she said. Speaking ahead of the annual French Language and Francophonie Week, Ms Pellerin said: "French is not in danger and my responsibility as minister is not to erect ineffective barriers against languages, but to give all our citizens the means to make it live on." France 's 1994 Toubon law decreed that all public advertising must be in French. Public services are expected to replace English words that creep into the language  in particular for new technologies with French terms. The language is protected by laws guarded by academics known as "immortals" at the Acadmie Franaise, founded in 1635 by Cardinal Richelieu, chief minister to King Louis XIII  - France 's Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin, speaks during a press conference at the culture ministry in Paris Photo: AP  -Published - By the Telegraph - London - 12 Mar 2015   |  Henry Samuel  |  News 

Montreal's economy: what's wrong, and what can be done about it?  

How to solve? First, look what previous elected politicians from city, provincial and federal did, they all together added cost of production to go sky high, tax after tax and tax over tax, from energy, consumer, real estate, plus driving out (of the province) capitals and talents with the introduction of the language law (Bill 101) precipitated by the enacted law passed (Bill 22) by then Quebec Premier Robert Bourassa, (that's the) reason why we are in dire need of economic reconstruction.

Montreal is a French island in a predominantly English-speaking country

It's known as La Main - "The Main" - and it's the lifeblood of Montreal . For the past three centuries this sweeping avenue, Boulevard St Laurent, has shaped the character of a city in the heart of French-speaking Canada . La Main was once the symbolic dividing line between the city's French and English speaking communities, with the boulevard a soft buffer attracting and absorbing waves of new immigrants. Today, it celebrates a cosmopolitan city with its array of little villages, from the Quartier Chinois, or Chinese quarter, to Little Italy and Portugal , along with strong remnants of an historic Jewish quarter.

What does it mean to be Canadian?

 With Asian trade and support for the monarchy rising, what does Canadian identity mean now?

What the Indians are trying to say, The French came as visitors and now they want the country for themselves?  So they say "over my dead body" before Quebec becomes a republic. After all, they already killed millions of us since they arrived here. This is not a provocation but just letting them know we are still around and Quebec Nation is not going to happen as long as there are still Indians around. Please send your comments to the editor...

Got a second?

1. Integrity and reliability are the most important quality that a public employee especially that of a politician should maintain otherwise the institution gets corrupted. 2. Poor immigrants are the greatest investment a country like Canada should bring in for they are motivated by dreams that money immigrants already have. We brought (in) lots of those money immigrants in the 80s from Hong Kong and surrounding areas, most settled in BC, did they bring their money to Canada ? No, they fried us with our own oil and most of the locals moved to nearby towns where the cost of living is much lower than where those so called investors settled in. But, where are those people now? They are back where they came from with our passports. Would you want to know more and why? Conrad David Brillantes

Oh Canada : How I Love You

The tour was to only last one hour. While the other educator and I waited for their arrival we decided we would not visit the Canadian galleries, since they were in another pavilion at the other end of the museum. We would choose the European Art collection to save time. They arrived twenty minutes late. My group had three mothers with eight children between the ages of two months and nine years old. Two Muslim mothers dressed in hijab and long over-... Quickly it was decided, even though time was limited, that we had to go visit the Canadian galleries. We showed the paintings, sculptures and objects from the Inuit, First Nations along with the first settlers from France and England . The children were mesmerized, listening to the legends and stories of the Canadian people. The mothers asked many insightful questions. As we toured from one gallery to the next, the mother from Benin began unapologetically to nurse her son. She didnt ask for help or lag behind. She did what came naturally and continued to be an active participant. And the two other mothers? They held the infants head as she went to adjust her top and looked after her other child. Mothers from different parts of the world, nurturing, protecting and caring for one another. I witnessed the actions of a community. Being an Art Educator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts affords me the opportunity to meet and interact with many people from all walks of life. I am very fortunate to live in a country where all people have equal rights and are valued for their uniqueness.
