Hardline language group blames media
The head of a hardline French language group is blaming the media, particularly anglophone media outlets, for plotting a campaign to discredit the French Language Charter ahead of hearings on Bill 14.
Mario Beaulieu of the Mouvement Quebec Francais says there is a "cabale" of anglo media outlets making too much of recent stories in the news regarding the OQLF and several businesses.
He is calling on the anglophone media to be more moderate in their views so that we can have a "respectful debate."
Beaulieu also believes the pasta case was overblown. He says everyone was focusing on a minor detail, being the pasta, but that the inspectors were just doing their job to make sure the French language is protected.
