I work at a Best Buy here in Montreal. Every so often a person from the "Office de la langue Française" comes along to make sure that the salespeople can speak proper french. I recently found out that if this person were to see me greet a customer with "hello" instead of "bonjour", i could potentially lose my job or be put in a position where I wouldn't speak to customers. This same organization also makes sure that the French font on billboards/posters is larger than the English font. I get that French is the majority and is the first language of Québec, but isn't this taking things a little bit too far?

I don't blame you. I love Montreal and the people and everything, but i just get so fed up with the French sometimes. The French press bashed the Montreal Canadiens' captain because he didn't speak French.

yeah the french are weird, a guy in my band is french and he doesnt have any friends and his girlfriend walked out on him because he is critical of anything and everything.

Stop generalising eachother (both the French and English) .

It really sucks.

Look, I'm not really a separatist but I just want equality.

So, every French-speaking person is weird because one of them is?

I like French people. In fact, at my job, a lot of them encourage me to speak in English if I prefer. I'd love for equality too, it just doesn't seem like there is equality in Quebec, when a person can get fired if they aren't perfectly bilingual.

I used to live in Belgium. We were supposed to speak french too, wich I can.
But if someone approached me in French I just talked back at them in Dutch, so they had to start talking Dutch to me too. When I'm in my own territory, people will have to adapt themselves to me, not the other way round :p

But you have to face the fact that the rest of the country is very annoyed (borderline hate) with you because if the government doesn't please poor ol' Quebec for even a fraction of a second you pull out the "separatist" card right away and shout "We deserve special privileges because we speak a different language!"

Just look at the last federal budget, Quebec got the most money, surprise surprise, the feds didn't wanna piss off Gille DuSeppe and hear him pronounce the word "sovereignty" in his broken ass English.

I said I was NOT a separatist. and it's Gilles Duceppe.

The real separatist movement died years ago, much like punk.

Having attended a school full of french people, I can tell you that the French, individually, are very nice, funny and randy, but collectively are the most arrogant nation in existence.

Don't get me wrong, I love the french, but I also hate them .
