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.  

Here's a fiery exchange, which also includes Yolande James of the Liberals.
