The election of a new government in Quebec is a sign of things to come according to a Lakehead University Political Science professor.
Laure Paquette explains the Coalition Avenir Quebec has a clear focus on preserving French culture in the province.
She says that even though incoming Premier Francoise Legault is not a separatist he’s out to make sure the French language survives and that will mean trying to place limits on the amount of immigrants allowed into the province.
The LU professor believes immigration will also be the big issue in next year’s federal election.
In addition, Paquette points out the new premier isn’t popular right across the province since he has next to no seats in Montreal noting that even in the suburbs and Quebec City, Legualt did not get the English vote or the votes of those whose mother tongue is neither French or English.
