Cégep Garneau’s “English Week” sparks controversy amongst QC leadership


Government of Québec Premier François Legault has openly rebuked Cégep Garneau for hosting an “English Week.” The cégep organized the week to promote English-language learning by encouraging members of its community to speak English to one another and inviting instructors to to incorporate English into their courses. In response, Legault expressed that he did not think the week was a good idea, indicating that “there’s already enough English among young people in general in Québec.” Cégep Garneau issued a press release in response to reiterate its commitment to promoting the French language on a daily basis and in a variety of ways.
