Je me souviens...
Separatists Day = La St-Jean = St-Jean Baptist day = June 24, 2005
On June 24, 2005, in the East end of Montréal, a pizza was ordered for dinner. When it was delivered, it had a light blue page stuck to the box. Here is the poem exactly as it was delivered. There is also an explanation of the intended meaning of this poem.
This poem is a throw-back to the political climate of Québec over twenty years ago. Are we wrong to think that there has been some progress in Québec?
For a very long time now, the Francophone Québecois have had total control of the province. The writer of this poem is living in a time warp.
The hatred and racism demonstrated in this message continue to this day among those who still support the terrorist FLQ (Front de Libération du Québec).
This type of racism (anti-anglo, anti-Canadian) is unacceptable.
They of course have the right to express themselves, as long as they do not resort to violence (e.g. FLQ).
However, all Francophone Québecois should be ashamed to have these racists speaking for them.
The author should be ashamed of his (lack of) command of the French language.
