PQ Language Bill Likely Won’t Pass
Giuseppe Valiante, QMI Agency (Sun News)
MONTREAL – Quebec’s second opposition party will likely ensure that the strictest parts of the Parti Quebecois’ language legislation will not pass, according to a leaked draft memo obtained by a Montreal news organization. The spokesman for the Coalition Avenir Quebec, Guillaume Simard-Leduc, confirmed to QMI Agency Wednesday morning that the leaked memo was real, but only a draft.
Dan Lamoureux, president of the anglophone-rights organization, Quebec Community Groups Network, said Wednesday he was relieved when he heard about the leaked memo. However, he said Bill 14 should be defeated in its entirety. “
(The bill) does not demonstrate to us as a community that we are valued,” he said.
