The move, introduced at version 101 of the bill at the request of Liberal MP Helen David, has sparked outrage among the English-speaking population of the Liberal Party of Quebec’s traditional electoral base.
John McMahon, superintendent of Vanier College, said he was “deeply disappointed” by the party’s decision. He believes that some of his students’ proficiency in French is sufficient to work in the Moliere language, but does not require study in the context of higher education.
Faced with the controversy, Liberal leader Dominic Angled urged the government to withdraw the move, although it was part of an official proposal by the PLQ submitted last spring.
“At some point, when you propose something that does not apply, you should realize that you need to find solutions, M commented.Me England on Tuesday. We sat with them, [et] It is accepted that it does not apply. Now the ball is on the CAQ court. The last thing you want is for people to fail in their courses and influence the R score. ”
No thanks …
His opponents, however, do not intend to simplify his work six months before the next election. Withdrawal of the amendment requires the consensus of the parties represented in the National Assembly.
“This is a circus. It is unbelievable that liberals are asking to defend themselves,” said PQ MP Pascal Bérubé.
This is their “problem,” he said. “Deal with it“, He began to replace liberals in exchange with English-speaking journalists.
The parliamentary leader of Quebec Solidair also used the opportunity to shoot an arrow at Dominic Anglade, refusing to withdraw the amendment. “There was a nationalist turn, it lasted for a while, there was a progressive turn, there was an environmental turn, there was good political marketing, but the party did not know where it was going,” he said.
The minister in charge of the French language, Simon Jolin-Barrett, was not interested in helping his liberal opponent. Asked in the corridors of the National Assembly to find out if he wanted to withdraw the controversial amendment, the minister said “No!”
