Just a quick note regarding Alec Boudreau’s inflammatory “verbal diarrhoea” piece on bilingualism/duality.
I, like most New Brunswickers, have plenty of francophone friends/associates and without a doubt most are of the opinion that bilingualism/duality/segregation in its current form has hurt this province the past three plus decades. Now, we’re asking for the program to be revisited and modified to be more efficient for our province, which is nearly bankrupt — and being called bigots?
Is your mayor Brad Woodside a bigot? No. He and others are waking up to both the financial and social reality of N.B. in 2015.
He and tens/hundreds of thousands of N.B.-ers are going to see this through regardless of all the unprofessional namecalling from the radicals like Alec.
