The MPP for Nickel Belt is pretty happy with Franco-Ontarian young people. France Gelinas was reacting to news that there’s a rally later this month at Queen’s Park to push for a Francophone university. Gelinas says it’s a testament to young people who want to continue their post-secondary education in French.
In the Legislature, Gelinas has been pushing for a Francophone university using a Private Member’s Bill. That Bill passed second reading last fall. The Queen’s Park February 18th rally will have some northern representation because a bus will leave Sudbury that day for the event.
