The Legault government is out of line in attacking foreign students who, after spending years in Quebec, would like to be part of our society.
It is a heartless gesture that will break up families, friendships, professional relations and destroy opportunities for many young immigrants.
As I have already said, the Legault government is racist and discriminitory towards minorities and newcomers. By going forward with this reform, the Legault government is sending the message that Quebec is closing in on itself and that we consider newcomers to be economic units rather than human beings who have a deep attachment to our society.
The Green Party of Quebec is strongly opposed to this unfair, reckless and discriminatory reform announced by the CAQ.
