Trudeau Minister Melanie Joly told the Liberal government that they must protect the French language from the "ocean" of English speakers online.
As a result of this, Joly will introduce legislation that requires federally regulated private employers to promote French in the workplace, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
Speaking to a House of Commons committee, Molu said that "digital technologies, it must be said, favour the use of English."
"In Canada, there are eight million francophones in a vast North American ocean of millions of English speakers, and it is up to us to protect French," added the minister.
Despite the supposedly pressing importance of this issue, Joly did not say when the bill would be put forward.
Joly recently received some press coverage after she pledged that she would give no more taxpayer money to her boyfriend. This boyfriend previously received substantial sums of money from the government for public sculptures.
Promoting the proposed bill further, Joly declared that "English is dominant in many spheres of activity ... that’s why we need real equality. That’s why we are recognizing the need to level the playing field."
"We know there is a decline of French in Québec and in Canada,” said Joly. "We must take action and we will continue to take action in our jurisdiction to protect French."
