While everyone thought that what Kebec did in 1974 was only a minor change and thus no real problem, turned out to be the greatest threat to Canada since Confederation. It was Kebec premier Robert Bourassa's Bill 22, whose very aim was to totally outlaw the English-language in Kebec. Of course it had the backing of Canada's Franco-Amerindian Prime Minister Pierre-Elliott Trudeau, who was really the instigator of it all, because this whole scheme was trashed out at the clandestine group of its plotters at the home of Gerard Pelletier on Elm Street, Westmount, Kebec, on November 22, 1963. It was so secretive that no English-speaking Canadian was invited to it. The main discussion of the meeting was how to obtain complete power in Canada by stealth without anyone from the English-speaking Majority being any bit the wiser.
This meeting was held on the very day that U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, TX. A day when so much was going on, that no one would even be aware of what was being planned for Canada by this Cabal of Franco-Amerindians right under the noses of the people of English-speaking Canada.
Just who was at this meeting? There were men lie Rene Levesque, Jean Marchand, Pierre-Elliott Trudeau, Gerard Pelletier and Jean-Luc Pepin, all of whom were working towards a common cause, that being the take over of Canada by whatever means necessary. But the leaders of the secretive movement were Pierre-Elliott Trudeau and Rene Levesque, both old friends and confidants.
The next move was how to go about the take over of Canada one step at a time. Trudeau ran as a liberal and got elected. The Liberals under Mike (Lester Bowles) Pearson won the federal election and Trudeau became justice minister in the Pearson cabinet. The climb to power had begun for Trudeau. In 1968, just as he planned Trudeau, and he then put his names forward to become leader of the Liberal Party of Canada at the leadership convention in Ottawa, and won because he convince his Liberal colleagues to support him and he won, which made him leader of the Liberal Party and the man who was to replace Pearson as Prime Minister of Canada. Once he became Prime Minister his next move was to replace members of the Civil Service in Ottawa with his own kind from Kebec. A then began the total take-over of Canada. On June 9, 1969, Trudeau came out with Official Languages Act, which gave all the advantages to Franco-Amerindians (Kebecois etc) when it came to jobs in the Canadian government. And so the complete take-over of Canada had thus been achieved by Trudeau without ever firing a single shot.
Now came the next part of his plan, which he had to put into action. He began by proposing to Robert Bourassa the idea of the province of Kebec becoming a UNILINGUAL province, which he would not allow any English-speaking province to become. He did not then nor ever believed that English-speaking Canada had any right t become UNILINGUAL English, and this he stated time and time again. He demanded that all other province in Canada be BILINGUAL, but no such demand was ever made of KEBEC by him.
That is why today Kebec has language laws which outlaw English and all signs in that language are now taboo in Kebec. But, every other province in English-speaking Canada has been forces and pressured into become BILINGUAL by both the political parties and the federal government, but no such force has been used on Kebec to make it BILINGUAL like the other provinces. Of course the present Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper has been silent and has made no move to protect the rights of minorities in Kebec, which are guaranteed by the Canadian CONSTITUTION on 1982. This seems as if some form of remuneration is being given to those in power in Ottawa by the powerful family clique in Kebec. Thus all we can hear now is the sound of silence from our Federal leaders in Ottawa.
