    Mr. Ignatieff says he wants all airport personel to be bilingual.

    he also wants all RCMP and any police that work on the transcanada highway to have to be bilingual, is this justifiable or just plain stupid to you?

    It seems to be political pandering to Quebec (seeing as the Liberal party is losing seats in their precious Toronto base).  In reality, I don't believe there are that many French speaking Canadians outside of Quebec to warrant such action.

    This also limits qualified individuals from applying to work for the police or the RCMP, because their language skills would take precedence over any other important skills they might have.  This would, in my opinion, weaken the police and the RCMP.

    I also can't see voters west of Ontario liking this policy either.  It smells too much of Trudeau.

    That's just political B.S.  In Vancouver there are many Chinese Canadians.  It would be better to have staff that spoke Chinese.  We have a Chinese TV station here.

    It's time Quebec realized it's no longer the 17th century.

    I personally do not mind speaking another language and anything which promotes the learning of another language I would think it is good. Most people in Europe speak at least two languages.
    Mr. Ignatieff needs votes in Quebec though so he will say whatever he thinks might work. Quebec might make him or break him in the next election considering the race is very tight between the Liberals and Conservatives. Thus, it is justifiable for him.
    I am not Quebecois; I live in Ontario but I love Quebec, its culture, its people (not so much the accent), ... and the food is fabulous!

    That should not be to difficult to do...look at the roughly 15 million illegals in the country now of which most need work.  If they can sneak in then possibly they can spot others up to no good. In doing so, they can put more of our taxpaying citizens out of work. WB

    There are roughly 6500 languages spoken in the world today. How many would he like people to learn?

    it seems to me that Mr. Ignatieff just might rank as the dumbest politician of 2010. he has this need to spout off at the mouth and then chage his tune the next day. i feel sorry for my country if he was to become our prime minister.
