Québec Solidaire's Plan To Protect French Would Ban The 'Requirement Of English' For Jobs

Much like the Quebec Liberals and the CAQ, Québec Solidaire recently released its own 21-point plan to protect and promote the French language titled the "Orange Book," which includes a plan to prohibit "the requirement of English in hiring, unless it is demonstrated that this knowledge is indispensable for the job sought."

This "Orange Book," presented by Quebéc Solidaire MNA Ruba Ghazal, features "21 ambitious proposals to strengthen the place of French in the workplace and in education, but also to facilitate the francization and inclusion of newcomers to Quebec society."

Other proposals in QS's "Orange Book" include "strengthening the application of Bill 101 in digital signage for all businesses operating in Quebec" and "the creation of a special office dedicated to Montreal within the OQLF."

Also included is one of QS's fundamental platform points: the "independence of Quebec."

"Bill 101 is one of the greatest laws in Quebec's history and one of the achievements of which Quebecers are most proud," said Ghazal. "It is not normal that in 2021, Quebecers will be deprived of access to a job for which they are qualified simply because they do not speak English."
