Hudson passes resolution to oppose Bill 101 changes

Hudson council passed a resolution Monday condemning Bill 14, a proposed amendment to Quebec’s Bill 101, that threatens to restrict which municipalities can maintain their bilingual status.

In a strongly worded statement, Hudson council said the town wishes to retain its bilingual status and that it would consider the removal as an attack on the fundamental right of any citizen to receive services in English.

Bill 14 aims to amend Article 29.1 of the province’s Charter of the French Language that would allow the bilingual status of certain Quebec municipalities to be revoked.

Several other municipalities in the greater Montreal area, including Dorval, Kirkland and Pointe-Claire, have adopted similar resolutions.
