Frustrated by what it calls poor funding for Nunavut's mother tongue, the territorial government says it is negotiating with Ottawa to have Inuktitut declared Canada's third official language.The CP sez that that there's only 415 parlay-voo speakers up there in the frozen terrytory but there's 25,500 igloo-builders that do their speechifyin' in their native lingo called Inuktitut. The CP's Bobfeller Weber who wrote up the story sez that neither one o' Canadee's official lingos is what's bein' spoke by most o' folks livin' in None-of-it. Bobfeller sez that 70 percents worth o' the whole ding-dong terrytory is speakin' in that there Tut-tut-tut lingo.
That would force the federal government to correct an imbalance that has it spending more than $3,500 per francophone on French services in Nunavut and nothing on the language most residents actually speak, said territorial Culture Minister Louis Tapardjuk.
Well, I ain't fer the gummint throwin' money out the window an' I ain't done me much studyin' onta this here native lingo dealie but it seems t' me that ol' Fartin' Martin's civilian servants oughta be able t' talk back an' forth with the folks they's sposed t' be servin'. Ol' PollyWolly opened up the door t' everbuddy an' their second cuzzins lookin' fer sum gummint dough when he give them billions t' ol' Danny Millions. These here igloo-builders ain't askin' fer too much so JimBobby sez let's try t' at least meet'm haffway in the middle.
