Sherbrooke stands with Franco-Ontarians

The City of Sherbrooke made a public declaration of support for the Franco-Ontarian community on Monday night, denouncing the decision of Ontario’s Provincial Government to close the office of the French language services commissioner and cancel plans to build a French-language university in Toronto.
“The city of Sherbrooke is a model when it comes to collaboration, harmony, and cohabitation between the francophone and anglophone linguistic communities,” said Mayor Steve Lussier. “The presence of both francophone and anglophone educational institutions, from elementary schools right up to university, has always been an asset for Sherbrooke and we are proud of that.”
