Herouxville's Open Letter to Jean Charest, Premier of Quebec

Mr. Jean Charest (Premer of Quebec)

I am Andre Drouin, town councilor for Herouxville. The electorates democratically elected me to represent them. They have also elected me in charge of project "Herouxville".

This project started with our long term (10yr.) development planning for our municipality and our forecast for what was needed to do so. One piece of information that stood out was the . After studying this situation we’ve decided that the cause is that the new immigrants don’t know our habits and customs before choosing Canada for their new home.

After summarizing who we are in a document of three (3) pages, we sent this document along to five (5) of your ministers and to two (2) Federal ministers requesting that it be incorporated into the information process for future immigrants to Canada. Being in charge of this project for the Herouxville electorates and knowing the modern methods of communications, this request should have taken five (5) seconds to execute. More than Thirty (30) days have passed and I have only received message received confirmations. Coming from a remote village, I now realize that this problem is global (worldwide). I find it worrisome that we refuse a people the right to describe and affirm just who they are here in Quebec, Canada, and anywhere else in the world. In ten (10) days, and only in Quebec, 6 of these requests (reasonable accommodations) have been accepted, which I find more and more absurd.

Generally people talk and criticize about the problems facing them. Being in charge of this project, I’ve clearly described the problem, and have proposed a potential solution.

"Proposed Solution" which you can find along with this document.
I hope that you don’t slow this project down by deviating from the principal subject, as I must remind you that my electorates and 85% of the citizens of Quebec await your answer. To know the difference between an isolated case and a global situation seems very important to me and must I remind you, the people of Herouxville await my answer, and I will get my answer. I leave you in charge of this project, project "Herouxville". We believe that with your success you will make Herouxville the cradle of the Democratic Renascence.

Thank-you for your collaboration.
Andre Drouin

N.B If you were to find that you are not responsible for the actions needed to settle this, please forward it to the person that will, and inform those who await an answer.

Actual Situation
People decide to move to another country.
The people of the country of choice welcome them.
The new comers ask that we adapt to them.
Totally absurd situation where the founding population auto-destruct.
Destruction of the patrimony of welcoming country.
Creation of social tensions. (We have not seen anything yet….)
Forming of ghettos. (We have not seen anything yet….)
Unbearable conditions for all.
Division urban centers / regions.
Country unstable and weak.

Why the accommodations
A) The immigrants do not know our customs before leaving their country.
Probability = 100%

B) The integrating immigrants want to provoke us.
Probability = Unknown (to be analyzed)
To be analyzed when = Now

Note: 1) Global phenomenon. Why?
2) Come mostly from 4 groups. Why?

In Quebec 85% do not agree to this and it continues. Why?
Globally. Why?

Desired Situation
People decide to move to another country.
Other people welcome them in their country.
The new arrivals adapt to the host country.

N.B If necessary the new arrivals can ask of their God to accommodate them in their new country and its habits and customs that they may adapt to the new host country.

Certain equality of women and men.
Social peace assured.
A united nation.

Another important advantage
The new arrivals that left the deplorable conditions in their birth country
can be assured that it will not happen here.

In Quebec 85% of the people want this. Why not?
Globally. Why not?

General Frame

A) God (having many names )
Eternal, Invisible, In us, Compassionate, Accommodating,
Loves us unconditionally, Created us free.
B) Free
Free to believe
Free not to believe

C) Free to live in any country
Languages, Ethnic groups, Religion, Sexual Orientation,
Dictatorships, Democracy, Theocracy

D) Unknown exists
N.B For certain believers, your God could impose certain conditions to show Him that you believe in Him

It is to the one that imposes on you that you should ask for an accomodation.

An example
In the early fifties the paper mills in province of Quebec decided to operate seven days a week. For us Catholics, Sunday church service was of utmost importance. (You don’t go and you go to hell type of). The church has accommodated its believers by saying “choose another day or make a special prayer”.

Note that it never crossed our mind that we should ask the paper mill to build a church inside the production plant.

Proposed Solution
Objectives: Insure the conservation of the culture of our nation.
Democratic realignment to insure its survival.

Actions: Declare state of emergency.

Application: Immediate.

Elements: Annul the possibility of obtaining accommodations. (Religious)
Retroactively annul any already obtained.
Advise Immigration Canada & Quebec to comply.
Advise Heritage Canada that Heritage Quebec also exists.

Goal: 1) Advise that the democratically elected take control.
2) Admit that these people have forgotten to accomplish their duty.

Potential reactions:
What moron thought of this?
Is it the moron from Herouxville?
The charter prevents us from……….
Where is the democracy?

Answer: If one day a Prime Minister of a country could decree a war measures act against a province, the Prime Minister of the said province could declare a state of emergency to protect the culture of people that elected him and show that democracy still works. If some existing laws stop you from doing this, annul these laws.
Eighty Five Percent (85%) of the population are asking you.

Results: Women, all women, in Quebec will be equal to men.
Satisfied population.
Social peace maintained.
Our children could eat pork at school in the future.
Our municipal councils could work at night.
Hardhats could be worn when needed.
We could wish Merry Christmas.
We could conserve the crucifix in our National Assembly.
We could swear and our God will forgive us.
You could stay in power for another 20 years.

Suggestions to establish the standards

See document by Mrs. Monique Gagnon Tremblay “Au Quebec pour bâtir ensemble »
Political statement dealing with immigration and integration. (1991)

Note: This document should have been applied 16 years ago.
Reduce the charter of rights to a one page document. The nation will acknowledge.
Establish a charter of duties of maximum 1 page. People will read and know it.
Manage or balance RIGHTS & DUTIES
The more you have duties, the more you can accomplish.
The more you have rights, the accomplishments are limited.
Execution time: About 4 days

Other messages

Listen to the people that elected you.
Learn to go from promise to plan of action.

Message from Andre Drouin Project Leader
If we want the politicians to roll up their sleeves, we as electors have to pull up our sleeves. Democracy can’t work if we don’t take interest. It is fragile and we should not lose it. The results from this project clearly show that an elected member that supports his people is always a winner.

Leaders should identify an isolated problem and act on it immediately before it becomes global.

Message from Martin Perigny (Mayor)
I have become the most popular politician. Why? Simply because I’ve accomplished my duty to support my electorates! Quite Rare in this day and age to a surprised Political World!

Your comments are most certainly welcome, please refain from using profanity or racist comments. Again We Thank you.
