Sher­brooke sup­ports Len­noxville bilin­gual sta­tus

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Dur­ingthe last Sher­brooke coun­cil meet­ing, coun­cil voted to sup­port the Bor­ough of Len­noxville in its wish to re­main a bilin­gual com­mu­nity. The de­ci­sion was taken be­cause of the large num­ber of An­glo­phones liv­ing in Len­noxville. Like the Sher­brooke wishes to keep the lin­guis­tic peace in the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties com­posed of An­glo­phones and fran­co­phones, while re­spect­ing the prin­ci­ple of mu­nic­i­pal au­ton­omy.

The City of Sher­brooke there­fore asks the Na­tional As­sem­bly to rec­og­nize that only a res­o­lu­tion of the Bor­ough coun­cil con­cerned should re­move a mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s bilin­gual sta­tus.
