The prime minister, who was at a press conference Thursday morning to present details of his reform project, Law 101, was asked in particular about ways to sell it to young people.
“Are you planning to do, among other things like vaccines this morning, invite Emile Belludu to talk to them about your reforms, How would you like to attract them?” A reporter fired.
Smiling Francois Legault replied, “Maybe you would take someone who supports Law 21 (on secularism) to start.” He continued, “Not seriously,” before clarifying his vision of persuading young people to protect the French language.
Remember, artist Emile Belludu sparked a lot of backlash last year for wearing an anti-Law No. 21 badge during the National Day parade.
