So much for the "dead ducks" approach! Quebec decides to support Canada's francophone minorities
This could potentially be a huge deal. The Quebec government has apparently decided to reassert its pre-1970s role of supporting the development of Canada's francophone minorities.
This role was abandonded by Quebec and assumed by the federal government under Trudeau's watch. I'm fascinated to see whether this commitment lasts, and how it plays out in the long run. I'm racing off soon to catch a flight to Montreal, but will put up a much more detailed post on this later. This is incredibly exciting news for a scholar of francophone Canada, and I'll be watching this story closely in the weeks to come. Recommend this Post
