The president of the borough of Greenfield Park is being slammed for speaking bilingually at meetings of the Longueuil city council.
During the question period at this week's meeting, two citizens asked Robert Myles why he insisted on addressing council first in French, then translating his comments into English.
The two women said he had no right to do so because, unlike Greenfield Park, Longueuil does not have bilingual status.
They also said that as Longueuil's opposition leader, he is obliged to speak only in French because the vast majority of the city's residents are francophone.
Myles is defiant.
"It is my right to defend the citizens of the City of Longueuil who are anglophones or allophones and I have no problem with that whatsoever. I will continue doing that," he told CJAD.
