French language is dead already..


French is the official language in 29 countries, which makes it the second-most used official language behind English. The 29 countries are, in alphabetical order: Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, the Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, France, Haiti, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Monaco, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Switzerland, Togo and Vanuatu.

French is also the procedural language for the European Union, the only language used for deliberations at the Court of Justice for the EU, and one of the recognized working languages of the United Nations.

The simple answer is “about 300 million” — Ethnologue puts the number at a conservative 267 million —

So Quebec will take in immigrants from all those French speaking African countries? I’m sure 100million would love to come and live there.

and hes not wrong.

In fact, you can say this about any immigrant who does not share similar language or values to any western country.

The left will say you are a horrible Nazi, but Legault is Francophone so he gets pass.

Sweden said as much a few months ago. But their government are feminist/socialist, so they get a pass, too.
