So the grits have walked on approving an auditor that is not fluently bilingual. Who cares the grits are increasingly becoming an irrelevance. The dippers are running to the language commisioner. All this nonsense is making us more hostile to official bilingualism. Many in the rest of Canada see this policy as a way to favour Quebec. I was born in a country with 14 official languages. In Canada we fight over two. If the man is qualified for his job, approve him. He needs to speak the language of numbers and he does.
Bob Rae and his Liberals are boycotting the vote to approve the appointment of Michael Fergus as Auditor-General of Canada.
