    I'd really like you to find us one with NHL qualifications.

    Well, he could have assistants who translate, right? There are plenty of such situations in European pro leagues, aren't there? :dunno:

    Liberals or PQ, it's still a member of the government interfering with a hockey team. The point is a hockey team is being used as a political issue. The Liberals don't exactly go out of their way to protect anglos' rights either.

    I bet you don't read a lot. Europeans do it a lot in soccer. José Mourinho started as a translator for another coach.

    Those kind of retort arguments make no sense. They may be valid for a Francophone coach in Quebec, but it makes no sense to apply that same reasoning for elsewhere.

    Quebec is only around 2% of the North American population at best, and French speakers are a small minority outside of Quebec. Outside of Quebec, English is the main language in North America and realistically, French is just not equal to English at all.

    Besides, language is only an issue in Quebec, and they wouldn't care if he spoke Punjabi or Russian only, as long as he won.

    ... AND, as I should have added, if MLSE could get a coach who could win a cup, regardless of what language he spoke, Tim Leiweke and Dave Nonis would hire him in a heartbeat.

    Not entirely a fair question, considering any coach with any hopes whatsover of coaching in the big leagues will have already put in some time learning english. Would be absolutely crazy not to.


    And that's not to say that it's right, but that's just the way it is.

    The government did weigh in on Cunneyworth and the fact that we have language laws means that businesses are compelled to fall into line with their wishes.

    Montreal is different from other cities because on top of everything else they have to deal with language and values being imposed upon them that reflect the cultural reality of where the government is seated but not the multicultural reality of Montreal. Businesses have left this province due to these restrictions and new companies are reticent to enter this market because of the extra costs associated with complying with language laws. Large companies have entire departments devoted just to complying with these laws. Inspectors running around threatening restaurant owners over menus don't help with the city's economic growth either.
