Indeed in 1961, the Anglophones formed a two-state federation with the Francophones, but today Anglophones are merely two administrative regions out of ten.
Their grievances should be received and examined, accepted or rejected, just like in any normal democratic setup.
And worse still, in these final weeks of 2016, it is the Anglophone problem that can throw the country into disarray.
It is up to the State authorities and the elites, without any distinction of political leanings, to understand this crisis and work out appropriate solutions in full responsibility.
This can only be achieved through a serene and honest dialogue with the real representatives of the angry but not desperate Anglophone community, whose obvious wish is to be considered and listened to, and not insulted or ignored as it has so far been the case. Maybe the average Francophone cannot fully grasp the problem with Anglophones.
