"What we want to do is give them all the tools for them to improve, and work in French and improve their French. The amendment we propose respects our objectives 100 per cent," MNA Simon Jolin-Barrette said about anglophones in CEGEP.

After saying a week ago he needed more time to study and voting against a Liberal sub-amendment to Bill 96 designed to patch up their admitted mistake in forcing anglophones to take three core courses in French, Simon Jolin-Barrette came full circle and now says he is in full agreement with the Liberals.

He said he heard the concerns of the English-speaking community and decided the Liberal plan, which will give students the option of taking three core courses in French or boosting their second-language courses from the current two to five, achieves the same objective, which is better equip anglophones to live and work in Quebec.

It will also avoid the predicted failure rate of English-speaking students who arrive in CEGEP with an insufficient mastery of French and yet are obliged to pass core courses in their second language.
