Bishop’s, Concordia, McGill make “historic proposal” in meeting with QC premier  


In a meeting with the Government of Quebec Premier François Legault yesterday, Bishop’s University, Concordia University, and McGill University made what the Montreal Gazette calls a “historic proposal.” The three universities committed to “being an ally in terms of francicizing” the anglophone student population. Details were not immediately disclosed, but Concordia President Graham Carr told the Gazette that the proposal includes initiatives to help anglophone students “learn French or improve the French they already have” and better prepare them for work placements and professions in Quebec. La Presse states that, in exchange for QC forgoing the tuition fee changes, the universities would commit to helping at least 40% of anglophone undergraduate students reach an intermediate French comprehension level by graduation.
