Montreal has been in an economic decline since the 1970s. Quebec referendums, restrictive language laws, divisive attitudes, and the government’s denial of Montreal’s bilingualism have all contributed to the city’s decline, instability, and discouragement of foreign investment. This is detrimental to the Quebec economy, as Montreal contributes about 65% of provincial tax revenues. We aim to change these conditions with our petition.
We are calling upon Montrealers of all linguistic, ethnic and social backgrounds who support a special status for their city. The petition urges the Premier of Quebec, to issue self-governance to the City of Montreal over its economic, linguistic and cultural policies, in order to establish attractive conditions for growth and prosperity. #empowerMTL
