Québec: Is the French Language in Decline?

Fri, Mar 5, 2021

The tug of war over language is again pulling in two different directions in Canada. Who will win?

The Prime Minister has said he is concerned about the decline in the use of French in Québec. While it may appear there are fewer French speaking people in Québec, the same holds true for English. Anytime language becomes an issue in this country, the rhetoric ramps up. At issue this time, is the Province of Québec wants Bill 101, the Province’s outdated language law to apply to federally regulated businesses in Québec, which is a federal jurisdiction.
