Really? People care this much to waste their own time over someone speaking a certain language that will never affect their lives? Man, we truly are pathetic, aren't we?

If you ever wondered where the idiots gathered....you see them right here. Maybe instead of wasting their time waving around cardboard arts and crafts maybe they should take a few English classes and see how the real world communicates. All empty from the neck up.

No systemic changes & positive measures, just repeated distractions. Shaming indifferent rich folks, scapegoating minorities, no incentives (opportunities reserved for pure laine), no real inspiring ideas/​arts/​proper literature to entice people.. just mindless nationalism.

Air Canada should move the office to another province and watch the idiots suffer Sad we have live amongst stupid people.

I’ll bet most of them have poor COVID-19 mask wearing skills also. The situation is overblown, if they’re going after 1 person with a French family name who’s not good at French, will they go after other people of other nationalities whose French doesn’t meet ‘their’ standards?
