The English Patience Update: Pauline Marois Reaffirms her Wad-ness

Pauline Marois made it known yesterday that she simply would not stand for the "prevailing unilinguism" of Montreal's downtown core. She called for tighter laws and more fascism (forcing more francification of the downtown core, strengthening the loi 101 and - I love this part - pushing for the acceptance of the Québec Identity Act).

There is no prevalence of unilinguism in Montreal. Nearly everyone in this city is bilingual - which is a good thing. I always address the employees of a commercial business in french, out of courtesy and I've spent the last 5 years nearly constantly in the downtown core; I've never once been answered in anything but french. Yes, some people struggle with the language, and it sucks for them, but it's not a problem.

Pauline Marois is a reactionist who's having a groundless fit and is not helping anything. She is a wad and, in the words or a scotsman I once met, a doss cunt.
