Well, the latest dumb issue causing controversy here in Quebec is about that.
In case you haven’t heard, Quebec politicians passed a motion prompting businesses to welcome customers with the “bonjour” instead of “bonjour-hi”.
The absurd was introduced by the outdated and VERY INSECURE Parti Quebecois. A political party whose only merit is to divide an harmonious multi-ethnic population, spend ridiculous amounts of money on a stupid “language police” and create racial issues.
Le Parti Quebecois sees English as an issue and not as an asset.
In the globalised world we live today they want nothing else but French… Not realising the new generation (and immigrants) speak at least 3 languages (French included).
In 2013, an Italian restaurant was forced to remove “pasta” from its menu because it is not a French word… WTF! In 2016, a restaurant called La Mama Grilled Cheese in Quebec City received a letter from the language agency chastising them for their Anglicism, and so on.
Gladly I’m not the only person thinking this is beyond stupid.
A Montreal based comedian and talk show host, has also shared his opinion on the matter:
This guy definitely said it better, specially that #SalutBye…
Which is all those regressive politicians deserve. SALUT BYE!!!
