The mission is to wipe out English
We've heard a lot of stories recently about language police and how over-zealous some inspectors have been, but when I read a report in The Gazette about what happened at Holder Restaurant in Old Montreal, I had to check several times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating.
According to the report, a language cop ordered the restaurant to cover the "On/Off" button on the microwave.
This is about protecting the French language? Going into a restaurant's kitchen and ordering words like 'on' and 'off' to be covered with tape.
It's one thing that English signs have to be smaller than their French counterparts, which is bad enough.
But this is an attempt, on the part of some, to literally erase English from Montreal.
It's becoming clearer everyday this is the goal of some, if not all Nationalists, to wipe English from the landscape.
At least a lot of people are speaking out about frequent visits from the language police. This kind of harassment has to stop.
