A Rationale for Changing Bill 101
The adoption of three linguistic laws in less than ten
years, under three different governments, testifies to numerous social and political changes experienced in Quebec since the onset of the quiet revolution. Bill 63, (1969), Bill 22, (1974) and, more recently Bill 101, (August 1977) attest to the rapid advancement of the Francophone
community's demands re: language which are applicable to all of the residents of Quebec.
For many this evolution exemplifies the need for self-assertion and identity long held in check by a system of social values which favored the introversion of the French Canadian collectivity thus keeping it aloof from the socio-economic mainstream of Canadian life in North America.
