I am Groot Posted December 9, 2022 Report Share Posted December 9, 2022 Needless to say they still think helping French communities outside Quebec is extraordinarily important. But the English in Quebec will lose language rights in federally regulated industries. Pierre Trudeau made bilingualism a basic principle but his son is trading that principle away in the name of pandering for votes from the anti-English nationalists of Quebec. Bill C-13 has many flaws, but here are the most significant: •It recognizes French as the sole official language of Quebec, when the Canadian Constitution ensures English as the language of the legislature and the courts; •It uses Quebec’s Charter of the French Language, Bill 96, as the standard for federally regulated businesses in Quebec, which means banks, transport and communication companies will be subject to the Office Québécois de la Langue Française; •It creates a distinction between the rights and recourses afforded to French minority communities and those for the English minority in Quebec. While seeking to grow Francophone minority opportunities in business and government, it suppresses them for Quebec Anglophones. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/andrew-caddell-liberals-rushing-to-help-quebec-suppress-english Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
