Decades ago, I was a director of THE COMMITTEE FOR NEUTRAL SCHOOLS in Montreal, founded and headed by Dr. Henry Morgenthaler, a survivor of the Nazis.
Our mission was simple and clear. We were promoting education in English and French for a non-sectarian school system across Canada.
The concept is so basic, so logical, so fair. All students would learn both languages. They would go to school together. They would form friendships that could last a lifetime and pass on harmony to their own children. It is so simple.
But French extremists in Quebec and Anglo extremists in the rest of Canada (ROC) fought against us, and our Utopian project eventually faded away.
I have a friend who is a professional interpreter. He travels the world from the South Pole to the North Pole and speaks and writes more languages than I ever knew existed. He has friends who love him all over the world. I am so pleased to have such a person as a friend.
What madness drives Quebec's extremists to keep on suppressing freedom of speech?
Hatred, greed, ignorance, and a plan to create ghettos and raise a nation of pure-laine slave labourers.
Does anyone remember Germany in the 1930's?
