You do realize we see the exact opposite right? Both in our news and history books. I just don't bother linking articles here since only Kellick can read them.

Well, you guys are a bunch of deluded seperatists, right? Of course you hear nothing good about the rest/anglophone Canada!

(Joking, :p)

There's also Korath and Sagara. And also Omacron? I know he's mentioned speaking some level of French.

Possibly others.

But yeah, not very many of us on SoL

I know of at least four other users, including myself, who can read French. Speaking or writing a more complicated text is where the problems begin, as per usual.

My Grade 8 French Teacher made me promise to never sully the French Language again with my awful attempts at speaking it. (That moment when you realize that was over ten years ago... oh god.)

I'm awful with other languages, sadly. I envy those who can speak multiple languages so easily.

Your teacher is a disgrace.

In Crazyterran's case, he's more likely to run into Mandarin than French.

Cantonese tends to be the language outside of mainland China, but yeah.

Though Mandarin is gaining strength, maybe it's just all the Hong Kong people that live around me...

At the rate it's going, Vancouver will be nothing but a bunch of empty, Chinese owned Condos, so it'll have earned the name.

Gregor Robertson (our mayor) promised hard action against foreign ownership, but seeing as he's dating a Chinese pop star, I'm not going to hold my breath.

That's... weirder than I'd have guessed.

Still advocating we wait for the investigation to run its course, but I just figured it'd be either some variation of "radicalized inter-sect violence #46" or "generic ultra-white-nationalist/racist", but the article makes it seem like this was some kind of "Internet troll gets possessed by /pol/ out of nowhere" situation.

Definitely still going with "wait and see".

Dutch government makes lists of allowed mammalian pets smaller. No longer includes brown bear. Government overreach indicative of autocracy.

It's part of a major shortening of the list. Also included among the scrapped animals are bisons and western grey kangaroos (eastern ones are still permitted). Some news sources also report Przewalski's horses, but I can still see them on the updated list.

Note that you can get an exception if you have proof of expertise and a plan to not make your wild animal maul everyone. Also, if you already have such an animal, you don't have to get rid of it.
