For Mr. Ortona, the majority of Cubans support the bill, saying, “It does not make the dissenting minority anti-Quebec, Francophobes or participants in Quebec.” Beating .
“I’m a Quebec and I’m proud of it. I was born here. I have spent my whole life here. Criticizing a bill is not from Quebec Beating “, He added.
