Marlene Jennings, President of the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN), says that the provincial government’s proposed language law reform, Bill 96, has put Quebec at a crossroads.
“The path Quebec takes with Bill 96 will determine how history unfolds in this province, and in Canada at large,” she said, speaking during a presentation of QCGN’s preliminary analysis of the sweeping changes proposed by the bill.
While establishing that study of the bill, which was introduced in mid-May, is still underway, Jennings said that the organization feels concerned that the bill, passed as-is, stands to have serious impact on Quebec’s English-speaking communities.
