Former Pequiste Pierre Curzi, who is now with the separatist party Option Nationale, explained his views on language when he was a guest on my show this morning along with Stéphane Dion, who once described Bill 101 as a great Canadian law.
One of Quebec’s finest actors, Curzi once headed the powerful Union des artistes. He was the PQ’s critic for culture, communications and language, before he “separated” from the PQ in 2011. He thinks Bill 101 didn’t go nearly far enough. Curzi felt that it had been attacked 200 times and – oh yes – he LOVES Bill 14 as is, thank-you very much. Curzi is utterly appalled that the CAQ would even consider tampering with it.
But one of his comments really stood out in the interview. He suggested that anglo-Quebecois should demonstrate goodwill by integrating fully and accepting the fact that French is everyone’s common language.
The former Bloc Quebecois Leader dropped by CJAD to discuss his new mandate, and what that means for his taxpayer-funded E.I. Commission. Take a listen (audio player is directly beneath the photo, on the right) and let me know what YOU think...
The leader of the NDP and the head of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, Thomas Mulcair is a man who hopes to be measuring the drapes for his move into 24 Sussex Drive by 2015 or sooner.
Does he feel Bill 14 is harmful to the English community? Could he bring himself to find one thing that Stephen Harper has does right? And how does he really feel about Peter Mackay? As he answers these questions, you will find that this man is a seasoned politician and an excellent communicator. Check out this interview and tell me if you think he has what it takes to be the next Prime Minister of Canada.
It was a simple story. This guys orders his girlfriend a $100 bracelet. The package arrives by Fedex. Inside – no bracelet. Instead, she is thrilled when she opens the box to see an engagement ring with a diamond and a matching wedding band! Like Lucy, this guy has a lot of ‘splainin’ to do.
How is he going to tell his girlfriend that he has no intention of asking for her hand in marriage and that he didn’t order the rings? On top of all that, the company now wants him to cough up the two grand!
Does he owe them the $2,000?
You might be surprised by my take on this dilemma. Hint: Very few people agreed with what I had to say on the subject. Check it out and tell me what YOU think.
