A bet­ter wel­come, fewer French tests

Montreal Gazette - - OPINION -

Re: “Spot French tests legally du­bi­ous, groups ar­gue; Un­fairly tar­gets for­eign stu­dents who were promised cit­i­zen­ship” (Mon­treal Gazette, April 19)

It seems to me that an im­mi­grant who has passed a lan­guage test with a mark of 70 per cent should be con­grat­u­lated and en­cour­aged, since I don’t doubt, based on daily in­ter­ac­tion, that many of the na­tive-born pop­u­la­tion would find it a chal­lenge to achieve that level of suc­cess. This prov­ince, to its shame, leaves a great deal to be de­sired when it comes to truly wel­com­ing new­com­ers. Time to prac­tise what we preach! Mary Rol­land, Kat­e­vale
