Any commentary from you, Mouldy?

I don't comment on videos that are presented without comments or context. I'm sure many here would agree with me.

You must know by now Mouldy just posts the topics then sits back and watches others debate the topic, occasionally he'll post something good like trains going through Dorval but generally its about accents and the most obscure people one could imagine, keep it up Mouldy very entertainining,we should make you an honorary Canuck

I wonder if, like in the United States, there will come a time in Canada when statues of its historical figures will be removed and places “unnamed” for them for having beliefs considered unenlightened today. Maurice Duplessis and Lionel Groulx seem like prime candidates for that treatment since their vision of a Catholic Quebec has been decisively rejected.

Quebec as usual is different. Quite defiant about such things.

You can go back as far as ancient Egypt and find such behavior, and it has never stopped throughout history. And I'm sure that the ruckuses and ruffled feathers that such "corrections" cause is just as ancient. Christians smashed the faces of non-Christian religious images, Muslims wrecked the buildings of their religious predecessors, the Israelites did it according to the tales in their scriptures....and on and on and on.

Small potatoes in this case, but carry on Canada. The same ol' same ol' same ol'..............since Adam, or whomever.

Id think it would be the rare student in Quebec that would know who Maurice Duplessis is or what he did.Same goes for mr Groulx,other than being a metro station id think the same lack of knowledge applies.
As for taking down the cross in the national assembly hall? not sure what it had tio do with Duplessis, thought it was more to do with bill21 and the total eradication of all religious symbols in Quebec.

The connection with Duplessis is obvious, just check out how that symbol got there.

But you are right that its removal is directly related to bill 21. Or more precisely, the CAQ wanted to be able to claim to have given something to bill 21 opponents who said ‘if you’re going to regulate on religious symbols for state employees you might as well stop the hypocrisy of voting laws under a Roman Catholic symbol’. Personally I am glad that this symbol is finally gone as it has no place in a public institution that claims to be neutral when it comes to religion.

That said, ‘total eradication of all religious symbols in Quebec’ is a gross exaggeration, but of course you know that. The vast majority of state employees aren’t covered by bill 21, and the bill has nothing to do with anyone who isn’t a state employee.
