FUTURE RESTRICTIONS FOR ADMISSIONS TO ENGLISH-LANGUAGE CEGEPS SCRUTINIZED
The National Assembly’s Committee on Culture and Education yesterday resumed its clause-by-clause analysis of Bill 96, An Act respecting French, the Official and Common Language of Québec. Committee members discussed clause 58, covering Articles 88.0.1 through 88.0.4 of the soon-tobe modified Charter of the French Language. This controversial clause focuses on the language of collegial and university instruction. It sets out new conditions to restrict which students – and how many – would in future be permitted to attend English-language CEGEPs.
