How to give bus drivers their break

Re: Give city’s bus drivers a break, letter, Dec. 14

If Ottawa legislated English as the working language, like French was legislated as the working language in Gatineau, we could give the city’s bus drivers, along with its managers, police/fire chiefs, hospital administrators, landscapers, snow plowers, mail/file clerks, etc., a break. This would stop French being made a priority over skills directly needed to do the job, and stop complaints by (fluently bilingual) people who think their French language wants, entitlements and ideology of preserving the French language should override merit and justify discrimination against the majority of the city’s residents who aren’t officially bilingual.
