About the Task Force

Task Force formed to stop Quebec’s Bill 96 and Canada’s Bill C-32

This Task Force was formed to give you and the public at large an understanding of the worrisome clauses contained in Bill 96, the new provincial legislation that was tabled by the Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) Government of Quebec. As well as Bill C-32 which was tabled Federally in Canada’s Parliament by the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC).

 

Why a Task Force? Because community members recognized that they were being abandoned by the major political parties in Quebec’s legislature and our Federal Parliament, and this is unacceptable!

 

We bring together French, English, and Indigenous speakers, as well as a multitude of individuals from other languages from across Quebec.

 

What does all this mean?

 

Together, Bill C-32, Bill 96 and the proposed Constitutional amendment which will establish Quebec as a Nation with the French language being the only official and common language, taken as a whole, are a fundamental restructuring of the Canadian constitution, language policy and our basic human rights and freedoms.

 

Bills 96 and C-32 must be stopped!

Hearings on Bill 96 began on September 21, 2021 and it is the Task Force’s plan to grow its membership, fundraise, advocate and to voice its objections in order to stop Bill 96 from being adopted into law.

About Our Logo

The logo is purple because blue and red together make purple. Purple is the most powerful visible wavelength out of all of the colors in the rainbow. Purple can symbolize many things, but to sum it up in a few words, purple represents strength, transformation and power. The symbol is easily identifiable as speech and equality. More specifically equality is encapsulated within our speech. It works in French or English or any language.

Thank you to Craig Steinberg for designing the logo and website.
