We speak 3 languages at home & in true Montreal fashion, can switch to all 3 in 1 sentence (Français parmis eux évidemment!)

Its what makes Montréal great!

Mon Dieu, Seigneur, I left Ontario to escape DoFo & look at me now 😭

He's going to be disappointed when he learns not only is french not my main language at home (which is spanish) but that I also sometimes communicate in a made-up language with my mother.

This will alienate so much people.

If he comes over to my house, I'll make him a cappuccino and we'll watch C'è Posta Per Te.

It's the microwave isn't it. That's how they are going to monitor everyone?

(I know they're monitoring stats, I'm trying to find humour in a dark situation)

🤣 Keep dreaming dude. Is he going to implant us with chips? I live alone so technically I speak no language at home. I speak to immediate family on the phone in English and that won't change. They left QC more than a decade ago. My turn....

Aside from buying votes,he wants us to speak French at home? That's unrealistic. My mother tongue is Spanish, so it's my husband's, why would we speak French at home? We use it at work and in any gov. Process.

In all due respect, I understand the will to preserve French. However, it is targeting minorities and it is quite intentional. I do hope the federal government intervenes as English is a NATIONAL language, and Quebec should not be allowed to pass regulations of this nature.

I don't know why they just don't let the evolution of language unfold. Who cares if people speak less French? The money that will bd wasted on this effort is asinine.

Il veut détruire toutes les autres langues et cultures qui ont contribué au tissu de la société québécoise ET ne représentent aucune menace pour la langue française. Oui, c'est un xénophobe. #polqc
