“A fanatic is a person who can’t change the subject and won’t change his mind.”
“That is Fascism – pure & simple!!”
“The problem is that there is no “quid pro quo” from the French. Once entrenched, it is a one-way street with the majority English giving up more and more.”
“Ken, this is simply nonsense. Council has more important issues to deal with.”
“Yes, (francophones) are noisy because they see a way of getting more of Canada under their control.”
“I know you don’t want Canadians to know this so you won’t post this. That’s too bad because these are facts that your readers should know, if were you not so clearly biased for the French.” (This comment was posted.)
“Servers in fast-food joints in Ottawa have to be bilingual to serve the French-language activists who are perfectly bilingual but just demand to be served in French or they complain. Don’t deny this if you want to have any credibility.”
“You understand things about this policy like Ken Gray is totally ignorant of – shame on him for his ignorance. He applauds the active noisiness of the French special interest groups without mentioning that they are very well-funded by every level of government; well-paid activists are easily available.”
“The trouble with you, Ken, is that you have not been paying attention. This is not a question of race – the English language is spoken by people all over the world – race has nothing to do with it.”
“Then again in the age of cash-for-clicks “journalism” I suppose one benefits from being an obtuse contrarian.”
“Ken is tenacious on this issue. Is it because Watson is against it? I am with Watson on this issue.”
“It never ceases to amaze me that people like you want to be accommodating without any research or investigation of the potential costs, both financial and social.”
“How about official bilingualism for Quebec and tolerance for signage?”
“Official bilingualism for a city means just that. That all services public and private should be available in both official languages.”
“If you want everything in French, move to Quebec.”
“When Gatineau takes the lead and opts for official bilingualism, maybe Ottawa should as well.”
Apparently your agent is the fanatic on official bilingualism. Hmmm.
