Quebec vs English, again and again

Quebec is working on a policy to limit access to government services in English to old-school anglos; Carlos Leitão asks how people will be qualified. Old-schoolers should get their family tree in order, I suppose. You! Citizen! Where was your grandfather born?

This is relevant to Montreal because the majority of Quebec anglos live here. I’m not dipping further into the related issue of CAQ immigration reforms cutting off international students who expected to fast-track into Quebec residency based on their educational qualifications because it could conceivably involve issues outside the city limits.

But I will say this: each of the CAQ’s major moves pushes Quebec to be smaller, poorer, whiter and less skilled. It’s the Quebec a lot of folks evidently want, or at least feel comfortable with, but it’s not really the Quebec we need for the 21st century.
