It is not clear who you are directing your comments at--?
However I for one am well aware that there is a large French presence in Northern Ontario, as well as NB
, Manitoba and other parts of the country. That is exactly the point, the airlines (and ALL of them that want to serve these areas) should have adequate arrangements in place to respect the market. The proposed Conservative policy, though not detailed, would hopefully ensure that indeed there would be services in French where appropriate.
Tell me, who has said anything about French being "so bad now" using your words. That is precisley the problem with this debate in Canada. The Trudeapian idealists have established a norm where to even suggest that bilingualism could be better served by a less bureacratic, less state intervervensionist model-well that is somehow attacking the "fabric of Canada."
The Liberals are already up to their unbelievably cynical tricks of trying to couch this as anti-Quebec, anti French, Conservative "hidden agenda" and morons that read the Toronto Star may buy it. Their arrogance is stunning. Instead of making false and outrageous hot button allegations about Harper, I want Paul Martin to stand up and admit that the "anti Canadian" policy that Harper is talking about with respect to AC
is a better model delivery of bilingual services. Tell the people of Canada (the vast majority of whom have NO idea of the state mandated AC
bilingualism requirement) that Harper is "un-Canadian" in that he thinks AC
ought to have an equal playing field in the market and that all airlines ought to be treated the same.
But watch what we will get--more media created controversy about an apparently "controversial" idea rather than any cogent discussion whatsoever about the real issue.
employees, for the good of your airline--vote Conservative--the Liberals have done nothing for you and never will. The Conservatives may, one hopes, at least create a market place that gives your company a better opportunity to survive and thrive. Or, just do what the Toronto Star has been telling you for the last 4 weeks. Re-elect a corrupt arrogant tired and cynical regime.
