I find it appalling that, this being a bilingual country, Quebecers have to resort to private companies to teach them basic stuff that like.
That, as I understand it, is a one-way street: all of the rest of Canada requires bilingual government employees - Quebec bans English on public signs and stores, including imposing fines. The basic animosity has been the flunk-o-phones against everyone else - because they like it that way.
The US should look at your example (and also Belgium, and even Switzerland) and stop this rolling towards bi-lingual English/Spanish. It divides people. Speak as many languages as you want - as many as you can - but do put maximum effort to speak the common speech of the a newly adopted homeland.
As for Quebec - it a fitting punishment for Canada's "we're so nice" arrogance.

It's not necessarily that all government employees are required to speak French (for most jobs), but you definitely are picked first if you're bilingual. As far as I know, French is taught in schools in all provinces, even where there is no French community at all. Quebec, you see, insisted Canada be bilingual.
Yet they turn around and go out of their way to prevent English from being taught. And they'll deny being hypocrites about it.
I have seen lately or observed that in our daily meeting someone starts with " I don't want to finger point and its just an observation that Mr XYZ ( blaming sentence)........... ".
I fail to see how this is not finger pointing? Or the standard line is the new political correctness which creeped in. Because at the end of the Day, it always lead to one guy defending and other opposing it.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
"I've got nothing against homosexuals, as long as they keep their hands off me."
I've heard that one too often.
Like every homosexual is a rapist that's into you.
Or perhaps these people are so unsure about their own sexuality that a simple handshake or tap on the shoulder could tip them over the edge
What's so wrong about finger pointing, apart from not being politically correct ? If error culture is established, there is no problem in telling X or Y made a mistake. I am not pissed if someone says I f***ed up, when I f*** up.
