Cegeps 101

A debate currently raging within the Parti Quebecois poses a direct threat to English-language Cegeps in Montreal: Dawson, Vanier and John Abbott. A proposal to extend Bill 101 to them will be voted on in April by PQ members. Coming out of PQ caucus in Laval this past weekend, Pauline Marois re-iterated her personal support for the move: "there has been a certain slide towards an anglicization - particularly on the Island of Montreal, and so firm measures on language need to been taken and that is one. I still support the proposal that is there - to apply provisions of Bill 101 to CEGEPs with several other linguistic measures." Jessica Obeid and Julia Roy-Touchette are first year students at Dawson College.
