J-F Lisee (@jflisee) responsible for #Montreal & Anglos? Why not just hire Raymond Villeneuve instead?
Don Macpherson really summed if up right in this column. I’m rarely surprised by anything the PQ does since you shouldn’t be surprised when a clown makes you laugh, but this one is a little extra insane.
Once he became a PQ candidate for the Sept. 4 election, Lisée became the party’s leading spokesman in its xenophobic campaign against linguistic minorities.
In a PQ communiqué titled “With a Parti Québécois government, Montreal will remain predominantly French-speaking,” Lisée, now the minister in Marois’s government responsible for the city, said:
“We refuse to be the generation that will see Montreal marginalize French! We shall not accept that francophones soon are in the minority on the island and we shall not let French lose its critical mass in Quebec’s metropolis.”
Does that read as anglo-friendly to you?
