FRENCH WORD OF THE DAY: Mater

Mater: To put down, to subdue or to repress.

As seen in: « Le projet de loi spéciale visant à mater la contestation étudiante qui est actuellement à l’étude à l’Assemblée nationale porte atteinte « aux droits constitutionnels et fondamentaux des citoyens », estime le Barreau du Québec. »

(Translation: “The special law aiming to put an end to the student protests, currently being studied at the National Assembly, limits the constitutional and fundamental rights of citizens, according to the Quebec Bar.”)
