Letter to the editor 2, Feb. 2, 2017
Really? Being a fifth generation Quebecer who can't speak French is absolutely nothing to be proud of. (Letters, Your Local Journal, January 26, 2017). It only speaks to the superiority complex of the old English guard, and is no wonder that they were, and probably still are despised.
I was born in Ontario over 60 years ago to unilingual English-speaking parents and I realized very quickly that if I wanted to make my way in this province, I had better become bilingual, which I am very proud to say I am.
An open mind can open all kinds of doors.
