I often speak of small incidents that hold great meanings.
Sophie Durocher is following on Twitter, the award ceremony of the governor general’s Award, the highest distinction awarded by the canadian authorities for a work of art.
She notices that the tweets issued by the communications staff of the event tortures your the French language.
When she asks for explanations, he answered, very seriously, that this illustrates… the limits of machine translation software.
Then, wanting to play ” cool “, the person apologizes for being an anglophone, to finally attempt to save the furniture with the humor thick.
If the case surprises you, you come out of a long coma.
These incidents are so recurrent that one wonders if the press release to apologize for it is not ready to advance.
That the French language is scorned and ridiculed in this beautiful great country is officially bilingual, it is no longer new. It is like the night which follows naturally on the day.
For decades, all the federal commissioners of official languages have the same observation.
Their purpose is treated as those of the illuminati at the corner of streets talking in a vacuum, or that we shout out for us to repent quickly, because the last Judgment is approaching.
I imagine by this employee of the Foundation the governor general’s Award, probably not a bad guy, raising his eyes to heaven and finding that these Quebecers are, therefore, likely, that they climb the curtains for nothing.
That Mélanie Joly, who speaks to say nothing, and speaks badly, is in charge of official languages is powerfully revealing of the importance given to the issue.
However, the most sad is not where it is believed in this case.
The sad part is in the heads of all those Quebecers who did not see anything serious, but who find that it is a storm in a glass of water, who do not see the strength ratio of PO-LI-TI-AS between the two languages.
They travel in English-speaking Canada, they are in the world, so they think they know what they are talking about.
They are the English-speaking ” bin ends “, as if that was the issue.
They are those people whose level of political thinking doesn’t go beyond : “It is you ben, Kanadâââ ! “
They are those who automatically switch to English before a native English speaker to be ” nice “, to show that they speak, or because it is ” more convenient “.
The colonized authentic no longer see the bars of its prison mental.
In the plantations, the slaves who worked as domestic servants in the houses of the masters would eventually believe that they were part of the family and despised the slaves who worked in the fields.
Pierre Bourgault used to be said that some Quebecers are so normal of getting kicked in the ass that they don’t even notice anymore.
