Judy,, you have a comment from ONE person,, I know that I can't speak for my entire country, and you cannot speak for yours. People have attitudes and opinions,, its best to get more then one before you believe it.. My entire family on my fathers side is French, born and bred,, and still living there,, and I have talked to many of them. They all have differing opinions on the issues. Just like you likely do about things that happen in your country,, and why they are happening.
Reading different newpaper articles, looking at various web sites, tends to even out the opinion of one B@B owner in some small city. She is right about some French,, but one could say that about anyones fellow countrymen if one was not in agreement with their views. My Canadian family that lives in small town Prairies certainly have some strong opinions about youth who can't find work here,, LOL
