8:27 P.M. Blasted for speaking English at conference … in Iceland ?! …

AppalliticsHeaderQuebec Premier Philippe Couillard is being criticized for not speaking French in a speech at a recent conference in Iceland … But Mr. Couillard snapped back that those taunting him should go to London or New York and see how far speaking French gets them …

* MORBNOTE ; EXACTLY !!! … These Kbekkers delude themselves into thinking other countries give a crap about their mangled version of French … THEY DON’T !!! …

‘ There are times , especially on the international scene , when speaking English is required to be understood ‘  he said … ‘  That’s especially important when one is pitching a plan on the economic development of Quebec ‘ …

In the case of the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik , Iceland last week , where Mr. Couillard spoke in English only , no simultaneous translation was available … The former prime minister of France delivered his remarks in English … As did the president of Iceland and a Norwegian minister ,  Mr. Couillard noted … ‘ With all due respect , I think my colleague is exaggerating ‘ Mr. Couillard told the National Assembly in response to a question from Coalition Avenir Québec leader François Legault , who was on the attack , saying the premier , failed to live up to his responsibilities as a representative of the Quebec nation ‘ …

* MORBNOTE II ; Quebec is a PROVINCE within a NATION !!! …

‘ There are two angles when it comes to language : expression and comprehension ‘ stated Couillard … ‘ Here’s a little challenge for him … Go to the London and New York financial circles and pitch your remarkable economic plan … in French only … Let’s see how that goes ‘ …

EXACTLY !!! …
