Only in Quebec - French language proficiency certificate denied to a French citizen for writing a chapter of her PhD thesis in English


Replace WTF with WTQ.

Is a French woman who grew up speaking the language of Molière not French enough for Quebec?
That question was being debated in Canada this week after Émilie Dubois, a 31-year-old French citizen fluent in French, was unable to get a certificate she needed before she can settle permanently in Quebec.
Her transgression? Writing one chapter of her doctoral thesis in English rather than in French.


Toe Toucher
There is more to the story - she failed to submit paperwork in time. Either way, she ended up being accepted. Administrative screw-up is all.
