Opposition NDP concerned by state of French in Quebec
The opposition NDP in Ottawa says it's concerned by the state of the French language in Quebec.
The NDP's critic for the Francophonie says it's time the conservatives put their words into action.
Pierre Dionne Labelle says the government has turned its back on Francophones and Quebecers by appointing unilingual anglophones to key positions like Supreme Court judges and the Auditor General.
Language critic Yvon Godin says he's encouraged by the figures that show More allophones are adopting the French language in Quebec.
“French as a mother tongue is declining in Canada, Quebec and Montreal. Quebec and particularly Montreal is welcome territory for immigration. But fortunately, some data are encouraging. More and more Allophones are adopting the French language in Quebec,” he said.
