‘Give ‘Em An Inch…’

“Some ‘Nunavummiut’ {People inhabiting the territory of Nunavut} are disappointed that there aren’t ‘Inuktitut’ ballots for voters in the federal election Monday. Kilikvak Kabloona, an Iqaluit resident, says she made a formal complaint to Elections Canada and Nunavut’s language commissioner after she voted in advanced polls and noticed the signs and ballots were not in Inuktitut.
{CANADA only has 2 Official Languages!}

Inuktitut is the majority language of the population and it is the first language of many people in Nunavut“,
Kabloona said.
It’s really difficult to understand why the signage and the ballots wouldn’t be printed in the language of the majority.

“Under the ‘Nunavut Languages Act’, there are four official languages: Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, French and English. In municipal and territorial elections, ballots are offered in Inuktitut.

“According to a spokesperson for Elections Canada, changes would have to be made to the ‘Canada Elections Act’ in order for syllabics to be included on future ballots.

The ballots won’t be printed in Inuktitut“,
said Matthew McKenna.
They will be in English and French, as they will be across the country.

“Elections Canada does provide advertising and voting information guides in Inuktitut. It will also accept voter ID in syllabics, said McKenna. He said there will be people helping at the polling station in Nunavut who speak Inuktitut and will be able to assist unilingual speakers.

The goal really is if an elector arrives at the polls and they are really only comfortable speaking Inuktitut that there will be plenty of people there to help give them the instructions that they need in Inuktitut“,
said McKenna.

“‘Nunavut Tunngavik Inc.’ {An Inuit ‘Treaty Rights’ organization} president Aluki Kotierk says not having ballots available in Inuktitut can impede on a person’s democratic rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

I think it impedes linguistic rights that Inuit have“,
said Kotierk.
{And we think that you’re making that up, just pushing for more racial privilege…}

{Some} Voters in advanced polls also posted complaints on social media about Inuktitut not being on the ballot. While Kotierk said social media helps draw attention to the problem, she encourages people to “flood” the office of Nunavut’s language commissioner with complaints about the issue…”
{It’s a FEDERAL responsibility…}

Rebuilding The Tower of Babel’:
“The greatest barrier between people is language and the Government of Canada isn’t doing anyone any favours – particularly aboriginals – by erecting more barriers, none of which will help aboriginal youth find success in the modern world… The attempts to preserve aboriginal languages only serves the interests of the linguists of the ‘Aboriginal Industry’; they are a disservice to native people.”

For A Few Dollars More…{July 19, 2019}:
But the government is short of funds for essentials…
To make “Canada’s Food Guide” more accessible to ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} peoples, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health, today announced the translation of Canada’s new ‘Food Guide Snapshot’ into nine ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} languages: Dene, Inuinnaqtun, Inuktitut (Baffin), Inuktitut (Nunatsiavut), Inuktitut (Nunavik), Michif, Ojibwe, Oji-Cree and Plains Cree…

Unofficial Languages’ (‘Indigenous’ Languages Act) {Feb.20, 2019}:
“UNESCO (U.N.) has declared this the ‘International Year of ‘Indigenous’ Languages’. In Canada, we have only 2 ‘official’ languages and current legislation seems like a backdoor attempt by the federal government to elevate aboriginal languages to a similar status; otherwise, there isn’t justification for spending so much on unofficial languages.”
