Canada's top court has declared a Quebec law barring certain students from going to public English-language schools unconstitutional, a decision that has "angered" the province's government.
Quebec's Culture Minister Christine St-Pierre reacted almost immediately to the decision, telling reporters she is "disappointed and angered" by the ruling.Because most students in Quebec must attend French-language schools, some parents were avoiding this by sending their children for a short time to English-language private schools and thereby qualifying for public English-language schools. I assume the Court was making a legalistic decision, but it's interesting to see the reaction from the primarily anglophone readers of the CBC.
Canada is an English-speaking country, bilingualism is wasteful and they don't give it a damn if Quebec separates from Canada. Canada will become a country the size of Australia and it's big enough, strong enough and united. Australia has always been doing well, hasn't it?and
Quebec's Culture Minister Christine St-Pierre reacted almost immediately to the decision, telling reporters she is "disappointed and angered" by the ruling. Did she say it in French? No, she said that in a language people outside of two countries in the world can understand.and

Perhaps it's because the readers speak even worse French than I do? Perhaps they fear that they never ever talk pretty one day? But really, they should take a deep breath. Me no talk pretty in French either, but me try.
