    Yet, the conservative chief leads in weeks a genuine crusade to raise awareness of the francophone.

    Two weeks ago, Andrew Scheer has published an open letter in the daily newspapers of the province. Ironically, he has chosen to title: “The conservatives are listening to the Québécois”.

    It is clear that, in practice, it is another thing entirely. On his website, the mp, the content is primarily in English, even if the desire takes a user to click on the tab “French”.

    Worse yet, the page “about Andrew” is not displayed to French speakers. It indicates that “this article is only available in american English”.


    In interview editorial with The Journal last week, the leader of the conservative Party had argued that he was working very hard to master the language of Molière. He was taking French classes each week and have engaged in a number of francophone employees in his office.

    The office of Andrew Scheer expressed its intention to correct the situation. The spokesperson of the leader of the conservatives argues that an updated website is in progress.
