A newly elected Ontario Progressive Conservative MPP has denounced her party's decision to scrap the province's French language services commissioner position and a plan to build a French-language university.

"The decisions made last week concerning the office of the commissioner and the Franco-Ontarian University disappoint me greatly," Amanda Simard said in a French-language Facebook post Wednesday evening.

"I share this disappointment and frustration today, having initially worked as much internally as possible to reverse these decisions," said Simard, who represents Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, an eastern Ontario riding on the Ottawa River.
