This post will be different but it is my blog after all. ;) I delayed publishing it but decided to anyway.
This was not a good last week for Canada Post
. First, they gave 60000 calendars
to it's employees but forgot to mentioned the French-Canadian
national holiday(15000 are from Quebec
). Every other holidays were in it including the best one: St-Patrick's Day
. :D Granted, that's a real goof
and because of pressure, Bloc Quebecois
, they will reissue 60000 new calendars
. Why not just send a sticker that an employee could stick on it's own on June 24th? No, Canada Post
is force to
spend money again. Btw, I'm not against the calendar. Just don't goof again next year Canada Post
What will be the cost of the calendars
? 60000 x $1 or $2 or $5(big calendars)?
The second "goof" is not what I would qualify a goof. Canada Post
will issue special stamps with 4 known singers(Paul Anka
, Anne Murray
, Gordon Lightfoot
and Joni Mitchell
). They are all English singers and none are from Quebec
. Poor little Quebec,
you don't have a stamp
. Snif! Snif!
What about the other provinces? They were left out too! Do they whine
The Bloc Quebecois
is whining again
on both counts and Canada Post
will redo the calendars(2008)
and do stamps(2009)
. To make it equitable for all provinces, Canada Post
should issue 4 stamps per provinces and territories in 2009
Calendar = Yes, it's a real goofs
Stamps = Whining for nothing
And before some of you think it's an anti-Quebec
post. Think again, I'm from Quebec City
! I'm bilingual and do errors in both National languages. ;) I also went to French schools all my life.
For my foreign readers, Quebec
is the only French province in Canada and America's. French is spoken less in the rest of Canada.
And to finish on a brighter note, Quebec City
is celebrating it's 400 anniversary
. It's a year-long party in any languages. So come and visit us. :D
What do you think? Please keep it clean/civil.
