Bilingualism if necessary, but not necessarily bilingualism
Jean Francois Lisée, the Minster Responsible for Anglophone Relations says requiring some public servants to be bilingual may not be a bad thing.
Lisée says there has to be some flexibility with language laws in Quebec.
He says that in the Metro for example where large number of tourists converge at stations such as Peel or McGill it makes sense to have employees who can speak English.
Lisée has come under friendly fire in the past for supporting the hiring of bilingual employees in some areas of public service such as at call centres.
