Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas is inviting the Franco-Ontarian community and supporters to join a rally in Toronto on Thursday, Feb. 18, to call for a French-language university in Ontario.
The RÉFO (Regroupement étudiant franco-ontarien) is organizing transportation from several cities in Ontario to join the Toronto rally and help people show their support for the Université de l’Ontario français.
Gélinas’ Bill 104, for the creation of the Université de l’Ontario français, passed second reading by a unanimous vote last November. The second reading of the bill focused on the next important step which is the establishment of a transitional governance committee.
“There is still much work to do before the opening of the Université de l’Ontario français, and we need your support,” she said in a press release.
