I get it though, if one wants to inhabit a lofty Federal political position in a bilingual country , English and French are a must.
Me either.

I could always understand him and he sounds like some people I know.

Didn't Kim Campbell approve some sort of ads that mocked the way he spoke. It certainly was a colossal backfire.

Yes. See my recent post about that, post #1444, and the link provided - I understand that Campbell was the person in charge of the campaign advertising on TV and the infamous spurious ad intended to discredit him that became known as the "face ad". It actually backfired and worked in Chretien's favour, although that had been the exact opposite of the campaigners intentions

I like the Quebec accent best when it comes from a pretty woman. There’s a drummer with Facebook videos who starts her drum lessons by counting “one two tree four”.

Was Creteins French any good? One should never laugh at how a person talks. Only at what they say sometimes

Oh yes, it's excellent and highly educated, French is Chretien's "mother tongue" that he started out and grew up with and English comes a close second - he is highly fluent in both languages without a miss.

No, Jean Chrétien's French was not that of an educated person (even if he himself was highly educated).

He was often derided in Québec for the quality of his French.

Though some said it was all put on and part of his little guy image.
