Bill 101 to be extended to daycare
The Parti Quebecois government is planning to extend a major provision of Quebec's language law to daycare centres.
Family Minister Nicole Leger tells The Canadian Press that most immigrants will have to send their children to French-speaking centres.
The measure will be one of several contained in new legislation aimed at toughening Bill 101.
The legislation is expected to be tabled this fall.
Bill 101 was passed by the PQ government in 1977 and makes it compulsory for the children of most immigrants to attend French-language schools.
The PQ has also made noise about extending Bill 101 to post-secondary junior colleges.
