  1. We are far from the quality of French that you pride yourself on protecting and enriching! The slang terms which often come from regionalisms that nobody knows and in France and elsewhere in the world, the anglicisms which have no place in this kind of game, no, it is not the sign of a linguistic evolution rather than "devolution".
    In Canada, many Francophones are fighting to keep French intact. Please do the same!
