Song to bring anglos and francos closer

Posted By: CJAD · 1/17/2013 6:22:00 PM

Local hip hop artist David Hodges wrote Notre Home because he says he believes the future of improving anglophone and francophone relations is through the province's youth.

"Notre Home is another way of inspiring kids to really value that this is my home, this is where I belong," he said.

His song is part of a $20 000 government project to bring the two solitudes closer together.

"You're here to stay. We want you to be here to stay and let's work together on evenrything," says Quebec minister responsible for anglo relations, Jean-Francois Lisée.

    "We want you to be here to stay and let's work together on everything," says Quebec minister responsible for anglo relations, Jean-Francois Lisée.
    The same Lisee who just last year told us we weren't part of Kaybec because we didn't embrace the culture (as if Kaybecers celebrate such greats as Leonard Cohen, the McGarrigles, Jennifer Finnigan, Bruce Greenwood, Bowser and Blue, Lorne Elliot, Oliver Jones, Mordecai Richler, William Johnson and Norm McDonald, to name JUST a dozen).

    As long as our rights are trampled on, this video and the project mean NOTHING.
    KILL Bill 14, 101, 178, 86 etc etc. MAYBE then we'll see you're serious.

    And this reply is from a 35+ year resident of this racist province, who STILL encounters anglophobia whenever he visits.

    SHOW, don't tell.

      @ex Kaybecer Ex K: Could they have found a more insincere minister to make this statement? Would Lisee qualify as a 2-faced treasonous metis from kebec????

    WHY??? Are they 'singing' a song to make the English feel at home. WE ARE HOME
    I was born here and so were 4 generations before Me. Don't do me a favor be trying to make me feel like home. The best way to be fair to the English is for the Stupid Quebec Government to 'back off' the Language laws and the LANGUAGE POLICE . How childish are THEY............You're sign is 'bigger' than my sign. Sounds like a bunch of kindergarten children...........Get a LIFE Quebec and Wake up to reality. You would be in a HOLE if it were not for the English. Coming from a PERFECTLY Bilingual English Quebec person. Always had and still have FRENCH friends and my grandchildren are totally Bilingual. You poor French people are kept in a BUBBLE and you are NOT ALLOWED TO SEND YOUR CHILDREN to English school. You are under THEIR rule and I'm glad I'm not in your boat. Irene

      @Irene Purdy Torrance Well said, this PQ government is eroding Francophone rights quicker than the Anglo ones. It just amazes me how the Francophone population can be so blind to these tactics. Sadly for them, their children there will be few good job opportunities in the world that is outside Quebec and less in Quebec as companies still leave there in droves.
      The laughable thing is the very government they believe in sends it's own children to the US to be educated in and to learn good English.

    Great song , really inspiring , Captures the new attitude of the post 101 perfectly bilingual generation that doesn't carry the victimized Anglo mindset of the oldtimers .

      @Umaga You don';t get out much do you? So that makes you a francophone, a quisling and/or someone who has never demanded to be served or spoken to in English. Do that and THEN watch the reaction of most Kaybekwah.

    Do the french lyrics need to be sung twice as loud as the english ones?

      @Realist Yes Yes they do just like the letters must be TWICE as large. IDIOTS these people.

      @mp mp, good idea. If it does not make them feel at home, no big deal It would make the anglos feel at home!!!! Suppose your suggestion would ever be considered?????

      @Herry69 get rid of queerbec and we can take Montreal with us to Ontario imagine a jigsaw puzzle where you just simply remove Montreal from queerbec lol
      Montreal, Ontario I know the Ontario Government will embrace us and perhaps they can pass bills and laws to get us out of this hell hole we are in
