English boards to challenge Bill 40 in court

Record Staff

The Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) sent out a statement Thursday announcing that in collaboration with English-speaking Community partner organizations, the QESBA will challenge the constitutionality of Bill 40 before the courts. The government of Quebec forced Bill 40 through the National Assembly in the early morning of February 8 by invoking closure despite unanimous opposition to the legislation and in complete disregard for the English-speaking community’s right to manage and control its minority language educational institutions.
