French language debate on CBC: Bilingualism taken to an insane degree: English translations inaudible over French background racket

 NO! Duceppe

PROFESSIONAL STUDENT SEPARATIST DUCEPPE

 

If the CBC and Radio Canada are serious about maintaining their national broadcasting service, they will have to do better than this.

I just turned on the Channel 20 CBC Vancouver, hoping to hear the French debate translated into English.

I can understand the French language, I read it and I speak it fairly well for a Westerner, but naturally prefer to hear the English translation, but it was inaudible over the original French language, left at such a volume as to compete with the English language overlay, thus producing cacophony.

Taxpayers pay for the CBC, Radio Canada and Elections Canada.

This is an outrage, and one wonders whether they do it to us on purpose?

Of course they do… they don’t really want people participating in the democratic process, not even in a passive couch potato manner, it seems.

    I would like to add that here in Ontario, it was impossible to hear the debate in french on Radio-Canada with Bell ExpressVu.There was simply no audio at all. Never seen this happen before! I tried to contact Bell to no avail.
    Sad situation. I can’t wait to hear their excuses.

    Merci pour l’information, Denis.

    It seems to confirm my worst suspicions, which is that they really don’t want people to hear or listen to them… in either of the official languages of Canada.

    ‘Harper’s Government’ is a fascist mirage, exporting their phoney ‘democracy’ with each bombing sortie over Misrata, or Tripoli, etc.

    They can’t make it work here, and they can’t force it to work ‘over there.’
