I nice to hear that my old Alma Matter is still managed by the same idiots as in 1979. they've been doing it for years and still don't know what the fuck is going on in the world.....<br><br>Oh! well ! I guess maybe someday the anglo's of Canada will finally get what they want and have Quebec go their seperate way....to bad for the other million or so francophones that don't live in Quebec though.

That, my friend, IS CANADA ! It's OK when you're in the side of those who gets favors from these Ottawa boys. Otherwise, you have to be a fool to really enjoy the ride.<br><br>BTW, just a little news here. There's a black man, called Maka Kotto, who's been elected for "BLOC QUÉBECOIS" (yeah, those sovereighty guys acting on a federal level). He's been called "nigger" by the "attaché de presse" of the defeated liberal candidate, a woman whose name I don't remember. Looks like racism is an underlying thing coming out from the party (Liberal) who never stopped trying to give Québecois (read sovereignty supporters) an image of themselves as racists (and globally, we're surely not).

At one time in History (the peak being the beginning 60s), it was almost impossible being served in French in Montreal in a lot of important stores (Eaton, The Bay, Simpsons, etc...) Anyway, I agree with you that it's a bit foolish. One can sense that some want to preserve the French character badly. Since it's a harmless policy, why the fuss ?  <br><br>For my part, I wouldn't mind going elsewhere in the world, seeing signs in my language in smaller letterings than for the native speaking tongue. In fact, except for francophone speaking countries, or countries with a common border to a french speaking country (and mostly only for touching areas and mainly for commercial reasons most of the time, or for French tourists destinations (ie: some part of Florida)), where would I be able to see french letterings, even in small fonts ?<br><br>Don't worry ! Almost everywhere else in Canada, it's only in English. Not even a tiny little bit of small french lettering in a lot of important places. And, there's still some french speaking peoples living all across that Canada. So, who's to blame ?   ::)

Tu es encore ici Mij ??? Allez Laisse tomber ! On adorera ton petit accent québecois quoiqu'il arrive au Lac St-Jean.<br><br>Actually in reply to the Question "Where you being from Recida? you could always reply "No Jonquière!" It would still sound good!

They realised that a dog can't be bilingual. It took them a week but it eventually come. <br><br>So, the blind guy may continue to give orders in French to his dog under the condition that it's the only French he'll speak there, which I guess is OK since the guy signed for a total immersion course in English.<br><br>Nevertheless, it was a kind of a funny story...

[quote author=Zardoz link=board=general;num=1089239537;start=0#2 date=07/08/04 at 04:55:34]What they could do is get another dog who is bilingual in french and english. Then he could take the english commands then translate them in dog talk to the french speaking dog. Or, would dog talk be unexceptable in this exclusive english spoken university?  ::)[/quote]lmao    ;D  but the french dog would have to be at least twice the size of the english dog<br><br>[center]Image  Image<br>[sup]english poodle..........................[/sup][sup]quebecois poodle.......[/sup][/center]<br>

who says a dog cannot be bi-lingual ( assuming a dog can be " lingual "  in the first place which i aint entirly sure about ) . <br>if a dumb mutt can respond to a few basic commands in one language then why not more than one ? after all i guess most dogs understand doggy language and bits of one human language so that in itself would make em bilingual - some dogs such as sheepdogs may even be tri-lingual as they also respond to commands executed in whistles .<br><br>mungo
