An Open Letter to Canada's National Political Party Leaders
For immediate release
Now that National Unity has become an election topic, almost nothing threatens Canadian National Unity more than the blatant and unconscionable abandonment of more than one million Quebecers of non-French origin by federal political party leaders, Harper, Dion, and Layton.
Angry citizens across our nation are watching these hypocritical leaders openly pursue Quebec nationalist and separatist voters in Quebec while ignoring the plight of loyal Canadians in Quebec who live under a regime of always denied, but open, state sanctioned discrimination.
This prejudice is imposed through the abrogation of language, sign, and education rights, not to forget the restriction of access to English language services, and overall denial of hiring of Quebec's minorities in government positions.
Considering that the Conservatives, Liberals, NDP, and the Bloc Quebecois all wholeheartedly supported recognition of the "Québécois Nation" in the parliamentary vote last year, this would be the best time for federal political leaders to make clear commitments on exactly what their parties will do to restore the abrogated rights to these too long neglected Canadians in Quebec.
Are Quebec's discriminated-against minorities, as full citizens of Canada, not entitled to live in Quebec with all the complete and inherent rights of being Canadian? Is it not disingenuous that the federal government promotes national bilingualism and affirmative hiring programs for French Canadians across Canada, while Quebec is officially unilingual, French, and employs few anglophones, allophones, and visible minorities?
It is shameful, disrespectful, and irresponsible for federal leaders to avoid these serious issues as Canada's national interest is flagrantly overlooked in the appeasement of the nationalist-separatist agenda.which has driven Canada's political life for too long.
Allen E. Nutik is Leader of AffiliationQuebec, an official political party formed to represent the full rights and interests of loyal Canadians living in the Province of Quebec.
