More than 200 people opposing proposed amendments to Quebec’s language laws held a protest in front of Premier Pauline Marois’ office in Montreal.
Many of the protesters said they are worried about the Parti Quebecois’ plan to strengthen Bill 101.
Dan Lamoureux, president of the Quebec Community Groups Network, said the group has been fighting for anglophone rights for more than two decades and welcomes the presence of new anglophone support groups.
“I think… it’s a concern of the English-speaking community of being swallowed up or being non-existent in the future. I think it’s encouraging that other groups feel they need to voice their opinions,” he said.
