English Montreal School Board files lawsuit challenging discriminatory & ethnonationalist Bill 96
Toronto Sun: 'A 47-page lawsuit has been filed at the Montreal courthouse, one week after the school board held a special council meeting and voted in favour of hiring a law firm to contest the legislation that changes the charter of the French language. It is the first court challenge of the bill adopted by the Quebec government on May 24.
'The EMSB and chairperson Joe Ortona are taking on Quebec’s attorney general. The lawsuit argues Bill 96 “violates the constitution in at least three ways,” including how the amended language charter “impermissibly infringes on the right to management and control of minority language education exercised by the EMSB under Section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”'
