Trudeau’s comments on Constitution spark backlash among Quebec anglos
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s comments that Quebec can unilaterally rewrite sections of the Constitution have upset representatives of the English-speaking community.
But the federal Justice Minister, David Lametti, insisted later that the federal government has not forgotten it has a role guarding the rights of Canadian minorities, including anglophones in Quebec.
Jennings expressed her worry about what Bill 96 might lead to in a letter to Lametti released Wednesday by the QCGN. In the letter, Jennings raises “serious concerns” about Bill 96, its impact on the rights of minorities and what she suggests was Ottawa’s lukewarm response.
