I am interested in seeing this protest as well. I wonder what the picket signs and protest shouts will be.

Protest...seriously? This whining about language is the reason my family moved away from Quebec.

I love how they always blame the Habs but never blame Hockey Quebec for the poor job they do at developing talent. The Habs don't have an academy so they can't take the blame for that.

I absolutely would be down for future counter-protest so you can note my username down. I'm K-O for a month or so though, just got operated so I can't do much except whine on my pc for now. If they're still being a bunch of idiots in a month from now I'd be willing to participate in counter-protest though.

L'équipe du Parti Québécois de Vaudreuil participera à la manifestation. C'est un devoir de protéger notre langue dans la métropole. Bonne manifestation à tous!




It's so ****ing stupid... It's not even about hockey and our team anymore, it's about buying votes and crying/getting mad for nothing. Sometimes I'm ashamed of being Quebec.. People like that slow the progress a community makes together.

Quebec is a bilingual province and the Montreal Canadiens marketing/media coverage offer premium french content to it's fans and the only thing that changed recently is that the friggen coach can't express himself in french. Why the hell does that matter dammit.. The language spoken in the NHL is ENGLISH so deal the **** with it!

Honêtement ça devient vraiment honteux... On va encore faire attirer l'attention pour des mauvaises raisons dans ligue... Je trouve ça vraiment pas correcte pour Randy. C'est de la discrimination pointer quelqu'un parce qu'il parle pas la langue de ton choix.

The best exemple I can come up with is Yemelin. He came here to Montreal not speaking 1 word of english or french yet most of our fan base french/english welcomed him opened arms and wishing him the best of luck with us. Why can't we just do the same thing with Randy? He's a human being like anyone of us and he SURELY doesn't deserve that..

I'm sorry but these kind of things piss me off pretty darn hard. Je suis désolé mais criss que ce genre de truc la me pompe solide..

Anyways, let's hope we'll have a great show tonight like last game!

Ohh le PQ embarque. J'aime ca!

The whole ''issue'' is 100% political and always has been. It all started when that obscure language defence group posted a letter and quickly the francophiles in the sports media (Gaston Therrien, Tremblay, ect.) joined for the easy popularity or support of their political agenda. They also want stories to sell papers, and when the team blows you just have to bring up negative stuff.

I don't believe that the fans really care, they are just being used by political activists and manipulated by the media. I would really like to see a survey about that to see the proportion of fans that are really adamant about the language of the team. There was one recently (in JdM, JdQ or La Presse, I forgot) and it struck me as extremely unprofessional and biaised.

I actually wish we had a Russian coach. That'd be sick. But if the coach only spoke Chinese, how would he communicate with the players, the refs, management, ect, ? It wouldn't work. . The guy needs to speak some English.

Habland is a fictional country with no distinct borders. Its population is known as Habs fans and their government, le Club de Hockey Canadien, is based in the city of Montréal. The official language is hockey and the main objective of the government is winning.

The logo on the facebook group is very telling. They have no respect for the history of the Canadiens or the city of Montreal except as a vehicle for their own nationalist agenda. This isn't about protecting anything, it's about cooptation. The Habs represent a cosmopolitan city first and foremost, not a homogenous Quebec.

Same here. I don't know if I should feel bad but as long as the team is winning I just don't give a damn about it.

JUST WIN BABY!

If he wanted to make a real effort he would build a time machine and make sure his mother gave birth to him in Quebec and raised him in the culture of the fleur de lis.
