Marois promises a new Bill 101
If elected, new language laws will come. That's according to Pauline Marois.
With star candidate Jean-François Lisée by her side, Marois reiterated the Parti Quebecois' language platform at a Sunday morning press conference.
The leader of the PQ, who is currently vying for the office of Premier, says one of the top priorities within her first one hundred days in office will be a new Bill 101 for small businesses.
"It is our plan to implement the obligation to work in French and to respect law 101 in a small business where you have 10 to 50 workers," said Marois.
She also went on to announce that her party will eliminate a current loophole allowing the children of native French speakers and immigrants to access English private schools.
At present, those students must attend a private, non-subsidized English institution for at least three years before being able to register at a public primary or secondary English school.
Higher education will be affected as well with Marois promising to restrict French-language high school students from entering Anglophone CEGEPs.
