BETTING À DAY
Let's hope that 2023 will be the year in which François Legault will resolve to put an end to the farce of “Montréal unceded Mohawk territory”, this anti-Quebec myth that the Montreal Canadians repeat ad nauseam, before each game at the Bell Center , and the sneering mayor of the anglicized metropolis.
Do Quebecers still love professional hockey? One could wonder why ! Because hockey no longer likes Quebeckers.
Last week, I spoke to you about the assimilative vocation of the Bell Center and the Montreal Canadians who use hockey to make Quebecers smaller… Quebecers that the Canadian team snubs out of racism.
In short, if a little guy dreams of playing for the Montreal Canadians, it is better for him to come from the United States or Western Canada, areas spiritually closer to the current management of the former team of Maurice Richard and Serge Savard. .
Last week, I forgot one piece of this brainwashing: at the Bell Center, we are being told the shameless lie of the “Montréal: unceded territory”… this untruth that Valérie Plante is also fond of.
No, Ville-Marie has never been an ancestral land of the Mohawks. Political-religious Mohawk refugees from New York State, persecuted by their own because of their conversion to Catholicism, settled under the protection of the French at the Sault-Saint-Louis mission, now Kahnawake.
When the Montreal Canadians started spreading this falsehood in October 2021, it caused a scandal. Minister Ian Lafrenière then said it was a mistake on the part of the team, but the Canadians continue to say so. Same thing for Valérie Plante: she continues to say it.
Those who gargle this lie hope to fool Quebecers who, without a history lesson, will end up swallowing these enormities that have no meaning. other purpose than to delegitimize them. Yes, it is time for François Legault to demand an end to this farce.
