Top 5: Franco-Ontarian
An interview with Elmer Smith, author of “Un Franco-Ontarien parmi tant d`autres”. He lists the five typical traits of a modern Franco-Ontarian. What did Franco-Ontarian mean in the 40s, 50s and 60s? Did this Franco-Ontarian of old have the same “qualities” and “flaws” as today? These are the questions that fascinate Elmer Smith, a Franco-Ontarian who witnessed the tranquil revolution in neighbouring Quebec. In “Un Franco-Ontarien parmi tant d`autres”, Elmer Smith presents a lucid and wise vision of what a Franco-Ontarian is today.

ELMER SMITH, auteur, s'avance en montrant son livre.
Mon livre dit justement "Un
Franco-Ontarien parmi tant
d'autres". Alors c'est ça.
Moi, j'ai un vécu, j'ai un
cheminement et c'est à partir de
là que j'ai développé certaines
théories, certaines idées que je
peux énoncer. Mais je ne parle
pas au nom des Franco-Ontariens.
5 Caractéristiques du
Texte informatif :
Le Franco-Ontarien ne favorise
pas le principe de la laïcité
certainement autant que le
Québécois. Il tient plus à son
église aussi, probablement
en imitation del'Irlandais catholique.
Texte informatif :
Le Franco-Ontarien est plus
conservateur, je dirais, avec un
petit "c", je ne parle pas
de politique. Il est plus
individualiste par exemple.
Pour lui, la Charte des droits et
libertés est beaucoup plus
importante qu'elle ne peut
l'être au Québec par exemple. Il
est moins axé sur le collectif.
Texte informatif :
Il est viscéralement contre
l'indépendance du Québec et
c'est à peu près unanime dans la
province, comme l'anglais
d'ailleurs. Alors il côtoie
l'anglais constamment et
l'anglais, bien, pour l'anglais,
c'est un péché capital que
détruire le pays, etc.
Texte informatif :
Il y a une caractéristique
que j'ai observée, qui est celle
d'être très optimiste quant à
l'avenir du français, de la
culture française et de la
langue en raison des
institutions qu'on a créées pour
les servir dans leur langue.
Ont-ils raison de l'être? Ce
n'est pas à moi à décider,
mais moi, je considère que le
français est en baisse. La
langue s'effiloche et tout le
reste. Mais l'optimisme, c'est
bon et c'est pas à moi de les
critiquer pour être optimistes,
mais c'est une caractéristique
que j'ai observée, qu'ils le sont.
Texte informatif :
Riche de deux cultures 1
Le Franco-Ontarien, je pense,
est plus riche pour avoir deux
cultures. Pendant qu'on grandit
et qu'on fait face à toutes
sortes de conflits, on ne sait
pas si on est anglophone, si
on est francophone, on est mêlé.
Mais à la fin, quand on y pense
et qu'on devient plus serein, on
s'aperçoit que c'est une grande
richesse. Ça nous ouvre au
monde. Ça nous permet de nous
libérer. Même si on a payé un
prix, je pense que c'est
mieux que d'être uniculturel.
