New Brunswick — In an exclusive interview, Kris Austin, member of the Languages Committee, finally came clean about the real reason for changing the immersion programs.
“Listen, we here in New Brunswick don’t speak too good and we are not particularly smart,” he stated. “I mean, most of us aren’t smart enough to read or write in one language great, so why would we waste public money trying to teach a second one?”
When asked if there is anything to back up his assertions, Austin replied, “I’m not sure what my ass-ertions are, but I’m guessing it has something to do with data.
“Look, if you want proof that New Brunswickers aren’t very smart, look no further than the fact that we elected Higgs twice and 10 percent of the people who voted for me, the anti-francophone guy were actually francophone! How dumb do you have to be to do that? Tabarnak!”
