Statement by the Prime Minister on the Fête nationale du Québec
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today issued the following statement on the occasion of the Fête nationale du Québec:
“Today, my family and I join millions of Quebecers in marking the Fête nationale du Québec and celebrating our identity and our heritage.
“As Quebecers, we can be proud of our history and our beautiful French language. These are the roots of a unique culture that unites us, from Rimouski to Val‑d’Or, from Montreal to Sherbrooke. To keep this identity alive and allow it to grow, the Government of Canada has established a invoice in March to modernize Official Languages Act and achieve real equality between our official languages. This law will allow the government to strengthen, protect and promote the French language throughout the country.
“Quebec has been an integral part of the history of Canada since its founding. When it comes to equality, justice and democracy, Quebec is often a leader. Today, Quebec talents in fields ranging from sports and cinema to artificial intelligence are the pride of all Canadians.
“This year, we will once again be able to enjoy the festivities on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec, in the Quartier des Spectacles in Montreal and with our loved ones throughout Quebec.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I wish all Quebecers a wonderful Fête nationale du Québec. Let’s be proud of who we are and what we have achieved, and let’s continue to work together to build a fairer, greener and more prosperous society.
