Currently, Québec is known as a French province within Canada. It was very sad and concerning to hear Premier Legault and Minister of Justice Simon Jolin Barrette referring to it as a nation or state.

They’re trying to find a way around the constitution and are very persistent. The name René Lévesque was mentioned (an ardent defender of Québec sovereignty). The constitution already refers to Québec as a distinct society. Numerous referendums have proven Quebecers wish to remain Canadian whether it be Anglophone Canadian or Francophone Canadian.
Québec should keep its nose out of the business sector when it comes to the hiring process. There will be numerous court cases if Bill 101 is upheld.
Apparently the French language is disappearing in Montreal, a highly ethnic bilingual city. The argument that the French language is disappearing in Québec is a government ploy or propaganda. We live near Shawville where most people are bilingual and everyone has respect for both languages. Obviously, the province doesn’t have respect for both languages when it comes to the Bill 101 overhaul.
