The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was the Bill 96 protest.
If there’s one thing we know about Premier François Legault is that he can often be swayed into making or changing decisions based on public opinion, which is why Quebecers need to get out, in significant numbers, to support the much-anticipated Bill 96 protest in Montreal.
I don’t know what has been planned in the Eastern Townships. But if you’re feeling extra passionate about the Quebec government’s egregious bill infringing on the rights of the English-speaking community, and there isn’t something in your area, take the two-hour drive.
I can’t promise that this protest on Saturday morning outside of Dawson College will actually persuade Legault into taking it easy on the English-speaking community. However, there has been so much talk surrounding Bill 96, and very little action.
Clearly, he hasn’t listened to the community’s outcry. Maybe this will wake him up.
