Justin Trudeau, a quote that will haunt him.....

Nothing seems to rile up the masses more than these two topics. As a result you can only talk about either in here. this forum will not be moderated, however if it gets really ugly you can report a post

I don't know how much things have changed, but the last year I needed to actually take Core French was grade 9, and I took it as an option in grade 10. That was about a dozen years ago. So French even then wasn't mandatory.

All that being said, yeah, Justin's comment was very dumb to make.

We had to take Canadian history in Grade 10 here in Ontario.

Perhaps it might be an idea for NEW CANADIANS to learn ENGLISH or FRENCH...take your pick...as a second language!

Hey, I had a couple of posts on this thread but now I see that they have been deleted. What's up with that as I thought this was a P&R forum "that will not be moderated" according to the 13thman preamble?

Who has the big 'self righteous' dunkin' thumb out there? There's nothing like libs controlling a P&R forum, I always say.

Good day to you, Sir!

I guess Justin missed the part about English being the international language...

Hgr.

I love this quote. Just another reminder to everyone in the west about why they never voted for Trudeau before.

It also shows how Pierre was the true father of Quebec separatism.

Now all that has to happen is Ontario will get with the program and the Liberals can be put out to pasture once and for all.

If you believe this ^ it's obvious that you've never spent any significant time in Quebec.

as one who has always refused to learn a second language and who hates the idea of bilingualism, I got to admit that there is much truth in what Justin said. I admit to being guilty of just that. but I do not repent of it.

In Ontario schools, Canadian History is mandatory in Grade 10. (and Canadian geography is mandatory in Grade 9). Not sure about the other provinces.
There are no stupid questions. Only funny ones.
