Yes George … Our time has … Well it should have arrived. Did you hear? Big conference … Beginning of November … Paris, France. Guess it is about time to get together and talk about important things … Well important to this Granny … Things like education and culture and science. People from all across the world will be there. Canada? Oh yes Canada has someone speaking … Hmmmm not sure what a lawyer from Quebec has to tell the world about education, culture and science … Especially since he is the Minister of International Development and Minister of the Francophonie. … Oh well I suppose that is where the … Oh never mind, George … he may just be the closest thing Canada has to a Culture Minister Or an Education Minister.
Who is it? Glad you asked! George. Name is Paradise or something.
for us …
Who? Who else is going?
For us Grannies! Is that what you mean? I kind of wonder too … Although he may be some sort of honorary Grannie in his own province … Lets face it … Not all the grannies in Canada live in Quebec … So who is speaking for the rest of us?
Where are all the Real Grannies of Canada? Who will be at that Conference to speak for us?
Lots of Grannies I hope! How do we get a flock of Grannies at the conference, George? You are right. Maybe the Manual has some advice to offer.
Where is that old manual … The one … You know …
THE MANUAL that goes with the Harper?
Have you heard? The Grannies are hardly able to drum up any interest in politics … Not since they discovered Granny-Hack
Where is the Grannie who might take the time and trouble to read the fine print in all those regulations and understand the nuances of statistics and explain to the rest of us Canadian Grannies just why it is necessary to have so many guests and government spokespersons speaking broken English and French on CBC. And why would Francophone contractors be hired to produce English Documentaries? Does Radio-Canada contract English speaking film makers to produce French documentaries? Quality of language in any society is only ever as good as the quality of the voices that are heard.
