Montreal-based anglophone advocacy group satisfied with apology from Prime Minister
(CP) - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promises that from now on, he will answer questions from the public in the language the questions are asked.
His pledge and apology follow a slew of complaints from angry citizens who felt he violated the country's bilingualism policy during last month's visit to Sherbrooke, Quebec for a town-hall style event.
Trudeau insisted on speaking only in French, even in response to questions asked in English.
A Montreal-based anglophone advocacy group, which sent a critical letter to Trudeau about that town hall, received a formal apology from Trudeau last week and published his letter on its website Monday.
James Shea of Quebec Community Groups Network says he is satisfied with the P-M's response, which he called ``gracious,'' and adds ``the case is closed.''
