French in Quebec: Anglos retain their rights in Bill 96, Jolin-Barrette says
The English-speaking community loses none of its rights and actually will improve its status with new language legislation tabled this week, the minister responsible for the bill said Friday.
“My objective was not to pit the French and English communities against each other. The important thing is to protect French while protecting the anglophone community. It’s the status quo for the anglophone community.”
QCGN President Marlene Jennings, however, was not backing down tweeting Friday that people have not understood Bill 96 “gives primacy to collective rights.”
