JOURNÉE DE LA FRANCOPHONIE: SOUTH SHORE NDP MPS CELEBRATE FRENCH, A LANGUAGE WITH A PROMISING FUTURE
BROSSARD – As part of celebrations marking Journée de la Francophonie, South Shore NDP MPs Sadia Groguhé (Saint-Lambert), Hoang Mai (Brossard—La Prairie), Pierre Nantel (Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher) and Djaouida Sellah (Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert) celebrated the inspiring spirit of French, a language focussed squarely on the future.
“As Québécois, let’s be proud to share in this beautiful language. Let’s defend and protect what brings us together and sets us apart. We need to take our rightful place and ensure that francophones across Canada are able to access services in their language, from all federal institutions. It is an obligation underpinning our country’s very existence,” said the South Shore MPs.
There are close to 220 million francophones around the world, 60% of them under the age of 30. The Organisation internationale de la Francophonie has 75 member states or governments. The entire NDP team is behind the South Shore MPs in celebrating Journée de la Francophonie with all Canadians.
