Desired? Received!

Today, I hope you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) a week ago... December 5th. 2019.

Why?

I mentioned about how severe the province of Quebec is, concerning Fremch and English.

As I mentioned, Quebec will only allow English to be used for courts... even though our Federal Government many years ago made both English and French, as our Canada legal languages.

So people have troubles with languages?

Yes!

Here is an article by globeandmail.com that is entitled, French national denied Quebec residency over language proficiencyhttps://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-french-national-denied-quebec-residency-over-language-proficiency-2/.

There’s little doubt in Emilie Dubois’s own mind about her ability to speak French – after all, it’s her native tongue.

But the Quebec government doesn’t see Ms. Dubois’s bona fides the way she does, having denied her permanent residency in the province because part of her PhD thesis was written in English.

“The first letter said you are not proving you know how to speak French because your thesis is considered to be written in English,” Ms. Dubois, a Quebec City-based scientific graphic designer, said in an interview.

Ms. Dubois, who completed her doctorate at Laval University in January, 2018, said one out of five chapters of her thesis on cellular and molecular biology was in English because it was based on a published English article in a scientific journal.

That was enough for the government to rule her level of French wasn’t sufficient to obtain a selection certificate under the Quebec experience program, noting in a letter she didn’t complete her study entirely in French.


In place since 2010, the popular program allows foreign students with a qualifying diploma or people with work experience in the province to receive an expedited selection certificate, fast-tracking residency and making it possible to stay.
Flabbergasted by the response, Ms. Dubois contacted the government herself.
“I told them, ‘I don’t understand. I’m French. I’ve been speaking French since my childhood … so it’s nonsense you’re telling me I don’t speak French,“ ’ she said.
Ms. Dubois said she did a French test recognized by the ministry and sent the results by registered mail.
But later in the spring, she got a letter from the government maintaining its decision.
Ms. Dubois, 31, has lived in Quebec for the past eight years, completing her PhD in January, 2018.

She came from France in February, 2012, to do her doctorate at the university in Quebec City.

“I came with a rough idea. I didn’t know what I wanted to do so it was very much under construction as a life project,” Ms. Dubois said. “It came together as I went.”

Ms. Dubois said she hasn’t received any clear responses since her story was made public this week, first reported by Radio-Canada.

Her local member of the national assembly, Catherine Dorion, said she’d help Ms. Dubois get some clear answers. The member of the Québec solidaire said she had been in contact with someone from the Coalition Avenir Québec government.
Self-employed with her own company working freelance, Ms. Dubois said she’s considered finding a job with a company in order to reapply, but hasn’t found one that fits the criteria set out by the province’s Immigration Department.
Her three-year work permit expires in March, 2021.
“So I still have time, that’s why I’m trying to look at my options,” Ms. Dubois said.
In response to criticism on social media about the decision, a member of the Coalition Avenir Québec government tweeted they were examining the case.
Ms. Dubois wants to stay in Quebec City where she has a partner who has received the legal right to stay – along with a Quebec-born pup.
“I’ll trust in humanity and hope it’ll be resolved,” Ms. Dubois said.
“I keep the faith because I really love my job and I’m convinced it’ll be resolved.”

Isn't that amazing?

Well, what is even more amazing to me, is also amazing to that French lady.

Why?

Please read this article posted by betactvnews.ca that is entitled, Quebec overturns decision to deny French woman immigration documents over language issue:  https://beta.ctvnews.ca/national/canada/2019/11/9/1_4677900.html.

Did you read the article?  I'll share with you what was stated (I copied/pasted):
MONTREAL - The Quebec government has overturned a decision to deny a French woman her Quebec immigration documents because of a chapter in English in her PhD thesis.
Emilie Dubois says she is relieved after receiving the news late Friday from an Immigration Department official.
Dubois, a native of France whose mother tongue is French, had been denied a Quebec selection certificate after bureaucrats ruled her level of French wasn't adequate under the Quebec experience program.
Her story made headlines around the world and on Friday she was told the initial decision was overruled.
Dubois says a certificate will soon be sent that will allow her to move forward on her efforts to get permanent residency, continue to operate her own business and remain in Quebec City, where she's lived since 2012 when she moved from France to do her doctorate at Universite Laval.
Dubois hopes her case highlights problems with the way immigration decisions are made.















Wow!

I'm happy that when I prayed for that French lady, God provided for her.

Thinking of that, made me think of Mark 11:24, " Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.".

Amen!   Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Do you pray?

Hopefully, you do... if you belong to Him.  For if you do, God will provide.

Hallelujah!

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
