Hypocritical PQ

Here's a shocker; the hypocrisy of the Parti Quebecois.

I'm not a very big fan of the PQ, to say the least. But the party has historically been sympathetic to social programs. Today, though, the government announced a series of spending cuts, which it of course blames on previous Liberal goverments.

Millions of dollars are being cut for housing, managing the environment and employment programs. Schools are also being told to chop their budgets. This affects elementary and high school budgets as well as universities.

Millions will be cut for assistance measures for families. Millions of dollars are being cut in health-care.

The government claims these cuts won't affect the citizens of Quebec. Really?

But here's the kicker. Despite announcing that budgets have to be slashed for programs like health care and education, some of that money will be going to the Office de la Languge Francaise.

In case there was every any doubt, it's clear where the PQ's priorities are.

    Remember one of the more recent reasons why the PQ said they needed to tighten up Bill 101 was that a survey showed a rise in bilingualism in QC. So why are they not restricting francophone students from attending English CEGEP in the new proposal. Another worthwhile fact is that there are only 4 (I think) English CEGEPS in the Montreal region and this takes away places from Anglophone students leading down the 401. I guess this is what the PQ wants.

    i share the same idea as Barry Morgan..not a fan of PQ.
    maybe its time we had a party..called "the peoples party"

    party of the people for the people....not some backward ideology that we are subject too.

    just saying...

    Her priorities should be for the Quebec citizens. Definitely not for l'Office de la langue française.

    I am fortunate to be living in a province with many different cultures, speaking more than just French. It is enriching.

    Je suis fière d'être Canadienne et d'être capable de m'éxprimer non seulement en français, mais d'être trilingue.

    Je suis en désaccord à ce qu'on me force à parler et de travailler uniquement dans une langue, n'importe laquelle.

    Si au moins Mme Marois défendrait la langue française au lieu de défendre le joual, (avec l'anglicisme), que j'entends parler
    au Québec !!!!!!!!!!
