Canadians split into Quebec’s Constitutional Amendment Bill 96: Opinion Poll

French-speaking Quebec and the majority of Canadians oppose the recent Quebec government bill to amend the Canadian Constitution and reform the state’s language law.

poll (pdf) A national survey on the introduction of the Quebec government. Building 96Proposes to amend Canada’s Constitution to make Quebec the “nation” and French the only official language.

The findings show that 62% of Kebesers believe that the state should be allowed to unilaterally amend the Canadian Constitution. In contrast, less than one-fifth of Canadians living outside Quebec share the same idea.

The study was conducted by Leger Marketing of the Quebec Community Group Network (QCGN) and the Canadian Research Association (ACS). A sample of 1,623 Canadians over the age of 18 was collected via a web panel from May 21, 2021 to May 23, 2021. The error for this size sample was ± 2.95 percent, 19 out of 20.

“Canadas and Quebecs are clearly separated on this issue and need to take the time to work as a country and as a state to truly understand the implications of what the Quebec government is proposing. QCGN President Marlene Jennings said in a press release. (pdf)..

“This is a complex issue and we need to talk and understand not only Quebec City and Ottawa politicians, but also the Canadian coast-to-coastal people. Only through knowledge and dialogue we are really in danger. We can achieve mutual understanding of what is at stake, “Jennings said.

The opinions of the minority non-French-speaking people are also different from those of Quebec’s French-speaking countries on the issue of constitutional amendment. Among French-speaking people, 37.9% “strongly agree” and 35.5% “somewhat agree” that “the state should be able to unilaterally amend the Constitution of Canada.” For non-Francophone phones, only 3.5% “strongly agreed” with this opinion and 18.6% “slightly agreed”.

On the issue of recognizing Quebec as a “country,” a total of 67% of Quebecs agree with this idea, and only 15% of Canadians agree to some extent. Within the state, a total of 79.5% of French-speaking countries agree that Canada should recognize Quebec as a country, while only 25.2% of non-French-speaking countries agree.

“Many Quebecians and other Canadians legally want to know what such amendments mean for federal-state relations and minority language rights.”

Quebec Bill 96 also proposes the most comprehensive reform of the French Charter. Bill 101 is the central law of Quebec’s French policy.

Quebec signs the Constitution of Canada if more than half (54.5%) of Canadians and about three-quarters (72%) of Quebec have a state recognized as a state and French as an official language. I agree with you. In Quebec, a significant proportion of French-speaking countries (77.9%) and non-French-speaking countries (54.5%) believe that Quebec should sign the Constitution under such an event.

As of 2021, the Quebec Government has not officially approved the 1982 Constitution.

Bill 96 introduced a set of policies to strengthen French in Quebec. This includes setting a cap on the percentage of students who can participate in the English CEGEPs, a publicly funded university system unique to Quebec. If the bill is passed, the proposed limit of 17.5% of the total number of students will be granted by CEGEP in English.

so Previous poll According to a survey conducted by Leger Marketing, more than half of the respondents oppose setting a cap on the number of Quebec students who can attend CEGEP in English. Again, French-speaking people have conflicting views with users in other languages. The overwhelming majority of Anglophones (88.1%) and more than two-thirds (69.8%) of Allophones oppose this measure. More than half (57%) of French-speaking countries agree with this policy.
