The Perils of Bilingualism

The reactions of artists in English Canada to the cutting of some arts programs are about what one would expect - sanctimonious whining driven by a strong sense of entitlement.
And that is what makes this video clip from French Canada so much fun - while I disagree with the guy about the funding, the sense of humour and play is hilarious.

It plays two ideas off one another beautifully, the ham-fistedness of the Tory criteria outlined in the link above versus our bilingualism, with a particular emphasis on the word 'phoque'.
