MONTREAL — The Quebec government claims to be listening to the concerns of anglophones regarding a new language bill, but its actions don’t reflect its words, two prominent Montreal anglo-rights activists say.
Brent Tyler, a prominent Montreal-based lawyer who often argues language cases, said Saturday that “the idea that the government’s (new law) was meant to benefit the English community is hypocrisy of the rankest order.”
Dan Lamoureux, president of an anglo-rights umbrella organization, told QMI that the ministers’ letter would have had more impact if it were also published in French newspapers.
“Politicians say one thing to the French community and another to the English,” Lamoureux said. “If you’re going to say it, say it to both communities the same way.”
