'Quote: Quebecers may be learning English because they realize an independent Quebec will never happen and passively supporting it only gave separatist MPs fat pensions and a lower standard of living for themselves. And learning English might get them better jobs. Duh.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
You have it wrong. French speaking Quebecers may want to learn English but the government does not allow it. They are virtually hostages. The poor buggers went from being ruled by the church to that of the government. The church ordered them to produce children and the government now tries to bribe them. Those who can afford it send their children to private schools outside of the Province.
As for not taking in Muslims, now that is rather short-sighted. Islam is growing. It is just common sense, to learn to understand them while treating them with respect. Used to see many Muslim women in full black outfits, nowadays, they may wear a head scarf, but then orthodox Jews also wear head scarfs. Next generation even that will have disappeared.
Have you thought at all about how to support all the old people retiring over the next few years??? The government is talking about raising the age of retirement to 70 or higher and even that only puts off for a year or two the shortages in the pension funds.
Fact is, family class immigrants who make up the majority of our curent immigrants are making the problem worse, not better. They're sucking in resources, not creating them. We need real economic immigrants. It's a cottage industry worrying about the future these days. People are lving longer and working longer, those are facts too.
Yeah, Quebecers are being bribed with money from the rest of Canada with unfair equalisation payments.
