Sifting through the Montreal Gazette’s archives, only two stories about language demonstrations by the anglophone community turned up over the last decade: one took place in 2015 to denounce the city of Longueuil trying to prevent councillor Bob Myles from translating answers to questions into English; and another was held in 2013 when long-time activists like Brent Tyler and Keith Henderson came out of the woodwork to protest against Bill 14, the minority Parti Québécois government’s attempt to strengthen French, which was eventually shelved.

Perhaps there were others, but the Gazette seems to have had more occasion to cover marches by francophones calling for greater protections for French in recent years.
