Denise Codrey expels English Montreal School Board President Joe Ortona from his caucus, Because he spoke against the version of the French language and the concept of Quebec country. Franకోois Legalt described the school board as “radical”.
“Following the departure of the English Montreal School Board to compete for the French language reform and the rejection of Quebec, Emcee decided to immediately exclude Montreal candidate Joe Ortona from its Caucus,” Mr Codore’s team wrote in a press release Tuesday morning. The decision was welcomed by the Quebec Premier. “I was glad to see Denise Coderre [le] Knock on the door, ”said Franకోois Legalt.
- Listen to Philippe-Vincent Foisie and Antoine Rabbitile analysis with Benoit Dutrizak on QUB Radio:
Newspaper The EMSB reported on its pages that it had asked the federal government to refer Bill 96 to the Supreme Court over the French language. And based on retired McGill Professor Joan G. Bradley, EMSB went further by emphasizing that Quebec was “not a nation and never was”.
“It’s not ours because we give ourselves an identity, and Quebec intellectuals deliberately use the word” country “to evoke reality that exists only in its own mirage. We must insist “, we can read in the document.
These statements made politicians jump. Franకోois Legalt believes that EMSB has become a “radical group”. “These are disconnected words. I also look at the federal government. We recognize that Quebec is a country,” he said.
PQ leader Paul Saint-Pierre Plumton condemned the “bad faith” of the English Montreal. “This statement contains all contempt for Quebecs and Francophones,” he said.
These are also the words that prompted Denise Coder to get rid of the candidate who turned out to be embarrassing. “This is not acceptable. The defense of the French language is one of our fundamental values: we have publicly demonstrated this on many occasions, especially with our request for the establishment of the French Language Council. I recognize Quebec as a country like our political party. The document is completely contrary to our party values, ”he said in a written statement.
His team, Mr. Ortona, “did not warn of the intentions of the ensemble Montreal and its owner.”
