The Montreal Gazette reports that the Government of Quebec Justice Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette “shot down’ a debate in the National Assembly focused on Dawson College. The debate, presented by Parti Québécois MNA Pascal Bérubé was focused on debating whether the $100M in funding originally allotted for Dawson College’s expansion should be redirected to francophone cegeps. The Gazette states that the CAQ did not give consent for a debate to immediately take place on the motion.
