Unanimous motion in Quebec to defend French at Laurentian University

The National Assembly unanimously denounced the cuts that are hitting French-language programs at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.

The motion proposed by the Quebec Party (PQ) adopted Wednesday expresses the solidarity and support of the National Assembly for the Franco-Ontarian community in its fight for the survival of its institutions. The text condemns the disappearance of no less than 28 French-language programs at Laurentian University.

On behalf of the government, the Deputy House Leader of the Quebec Future Coalition (CAQ), Éric Caire, said he clearly gave his consent to this motion. This will be officially forwarded to the office of Ontario Premier Doug Ford.

Remember that Laurentian University is in serious financial difficulty. It placed itself under the protection of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act on February 1 and had until April 30 to present a restructuring plan according to the deadlines set by the courts.
