PQ plan to limit English CEGEP access could be risky
The Parti-Québécois wants to prevent francophone and allophone students from attending English CEGEPs.
It's part of a commitment to table a new, more restrictive, Charter of the French Language in the first 100 days of a new PQ government.
But it could be a risky move.
The PQ's star candidate, Léo Bureau-Blouin, admits in a letter to Le Devoir today he was unable to convince the CEGEP student federation to support the PQ resolution when he was the federation's president.
Access to CEGEPs was a hot topic today on the Radio Noon candidates debate.
Thierry St-Cyr of the PQ said people were predicting an apocalypse when the original Bill 101 was introduced.
CAQ's Dominique Anglade said the bill was trying to solve a problem which doesn't exist.
