Mr. Speaker, the Liberals say they want to defend French in Quebec, but they do not walk the talk.
Yesterday, the Prime Minister said that he supported Bill 101, but the federal government has been gutting it since 1977. This government has refused to apply Bill 101 to federally regulated businesses. The Liberals even said at the time that it was a disgrace.
Today, the Bloc is proposing a bill to make an adequate knowledge of French a condition for becoming a citizen in Quebec. The Liberals do not want that, and they will be voting against it.
At the end of the day, is the Liberal Party’s real position on French in Quebec the same as the position of the member for Saint-Laurent?
