The project will serve to create new spaces in the English-speaking college and not only make the spaces more spacious for existing clients, PQ leader Paul Saint-Pierre Plamond‌n condemned on Monday.

According to him, any reinvestment to balance the number of places in the CEGEPs according to the population of Montreal should be a priority for the French-speaking college network.

Data indicates that from this year onwards the island of Montreal will have more locations on the English speaking network than the French speaking network.

It should be noted that the Dawson City expansion project is the only collegiate project selected by the CAQ government as part of the infrastructure projects to be undertaken on an expeditious basis, as per the law passed in December.

While denouncing the PQ leader in an interview with the Canadian Press on Monday, he said that while the “language situation is already problematic” in Montreal, “the Legal government will financially assist our own mobilization with public funds.”

The CAQ government must first fund new locations in the French-language CEGEPs, rather than asking the federal government to review its official languages ​​law, as it has recently done, or to promise a tenth term. Review Bill 101, Mr. St. -Pierre Plamandon.

“It’s a very revealing gesture of the true nature of the CAQ. The CAQ goes much further than the Liberals.

He insisted that the move was not about withdrawing Anglophones from their right to study in college in English, but about “balancing funds” in line with the number of French college places on the island of Montreal.
