The Quebec English School Boards' Association is calling on the education ministry to back off and cut the newly added red tape for military families in the province.
"They're not respecting Bill 101," said David D'Aoust of the QESBA. "Make no mistake, I think this is underhanded politics, this government could not get Bill 14 adopted it had to be withdrawn."
Bill 14 was killed before the Christmas break and was going to remove the right for military families here temporarily from sending their children to school in English.
"I think this is underhanded politics," he said.
D'Aoust said military families wanting to register their children in English school have been sent piles of documents, unknown to the school boards, and requires unnecessary and copious amounts of paperwork.
"All they need is a sworn document that they are in the military and their assignment is temporary," he said. "The department of National Defence told us, by virtue of the fact that you sign up to be a soldier, you're always assigned temporarily, and you can be reassigned at a moment's notice."
The Quebec education ministry issued a release saying it respects Bill 101.
