A new French-language bill has sparked plenty of controversy in Quebec over the past few weeks. In recent days, a veterinarian was barred from her occupation in the province because she did not pass her language test. Today, Bill 96 sparked a last-minute protest, as organizers voiced their concerns over the unintended consequences that this confusing legislation could inflict on the province’s culture, not to mention Quebec’s economy and its post-secondary institutions. Linda Vanderlee and Kate Greenland attended Friday’s demonstrations and they join Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
