"Haven't you had enough of being laughed at?" the group wrote in a news release. Never, and we mean never, would the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Calgary Flames or the Vancouver Canucks hire a unilingual French coach."
Cunneyworth is a Toronto native who doesn't speak French, and in Montreal, that alone is usually enough to disqualify someone from becoming the Habs' head coach, regardless of his hockey savvy.
Group wants to boycott Molson products
At a time when anti English sentiment is on the rise in some quarters in the province, the hiring of a unilingual anglophone coach of the Montreal Canadiens is drawing negative reaction among some columnists and activists.
"Democracy needs to express itself here. Vote against this affront by not buying Molson products. There's the penalty you can impose on Molson for its gross misconduct and its bodycheck against Quebec."
Randy Cunneyworth, a former NHLer and former coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs, began the season as the Canadiens' assistant coach, backing head coach Jacques Martin. With Martin's firing on Saturday, Cunneyworth was tapped to replace him.
Perhaps it was predictable.
I hope the Canadien's wait for a French speaking coach as there are many great uni lingual coaches out there Mike Babcock for one. We live in a dream world of former glory days that will likely never return here. Most French Canadien players don't even want to play here HELLO wake up call. The language issue is a side show for seperatist groups who continue to spew racist hatred at every opportunity.
recent 'scandals' involving unilingual anglos at the National Bank and the Caisse de Dep
Gilles Rh is upset
Meanwhile, Gilles Rh a well known pro French activist who speaks for an outfit called the Ligue Qu contre la Francophobie Canadienne, is up in arms.
There hasn't been a unilingual anglo behind the Habs' bench since Bob Berry, who held the job between 1981 and 1984.
the hiring of CEO's or for that matter even care by voicing their opinon, so why the Canadiens? A coach's job is to coach and make his team win, the rest is icing on the cake. The Canadiens woes are not the coaches, they lack leadership on the ice from their captain, a spark plug or catalyst / clutch player, team chemistry, the burning desire to win and confidence, oh and a little talent would go a long way to. The coach can help in some of these matters but not all. If we brought back Scotty Bowman, the undisputed king of coaches and he failed to inspire the team and get them winning, would it be a language issue then?
As a Quebecer born and raised, who happens to have English as his Mother tongue, I get so sick and tired of all the Anti Anglophone sentiment which STILL raises its voice LOUD and STRONG in Quebec society ! I am fully bilingual, but it wasn't good enough for me to be able to stay and make a living in Quebec, so I had to leave. Everything ! And I do mean everything gets jammed through the focus of language politics in Quebec Even hockey, and it's nauseating ! The anglophone community continues to suffer a slow death by a thousand cuts, and Xenophobic French language bigots, like Gilles Rheaume, continue to assault English Quebec. The Air Max 90 Current great Irony here is this is yet another expression of Anglophobia Not Francophobia !
Wow, poor guy, he only played one game. Cunneyworth even said he would learn French if it's that such a big deal. I want to see this team win and I don't care if the coach is English, Russian, or Muslim. Hell, give me a muslim coach and see how everyone reacts. Honestly, if you're tree fans then it doesn't matter. All these groups and Gill Rheaume complaining, guess what??? You should all be sentenced to jail for this Air Max 90 All Black
systemic racism. Gille Rheaume is just trying to get in the spotlight again after all his failed campaigns and as for the other group, well, the entire organization should be brought down. I wouldn't be surprised if maybe someone blocks this comment because it's in ENGLISH!!! Get a life or get out of Montreal you racist separatists! We all moved on and so should you.
"The coach of the Canadiens is the most scrutinized personality in Quebec, even more than the prime minister, Celine Dion and even [Quebec City mayor] Regis Labeaume," Poissant wrote. "And Cunneyworth can't answer questions in French. It doesn't make any sense."
In what other industry does the public and media have the right to question Air Max 90 Black Red Grey
If you really want to win then the ability of the coach to COACH is what you are looking for. Languages can be learned. Jaques Martin had a winning record and took us to the playoffs division finals not bad for a failure eh? A better solution would be to fire some of the overpaid players who cannot follow a simple game plan.
Cunneyworth's lack of French not going over well with some
"There are many in Quebec and in all of French America who are asking, the day after a unilingual anglophone was given the head coaching job, if the Canadiens' management hasn't been stricken with francophobia, characterized by a total insensitivity to the French fact in Quebec," Rh wrote. "Not being able to speak French is a severe handicap for someone who occupies such a position. Knowledge of the language of Quebec is an integral part of the skills required to lead the Montreal Canadiens."
And the group Imp Fran is going even further. It wants Quebecers to boycott products made by Molson, the family which owns the Montreal Canadiens.
Just before 7 o'clock Sunday morning, his group issued a news release, accusing the Montreal Canadiens' management of what he calls francophobia, and is calling for Cunneyworth to be summarily fired.
