Young Quebec anglophones feel they’re being pushed out
By Marian Scott, Montreal Gazette
The English-speaking community’s best and brightest would like to stay in Quebec, but feel they have an uncertain future here, a new study suggests.
The study of young anglophones and francophones also suggests that anglophones are more likely to report having been victims of discrimination on the basis of language than members of the French-speaking majority.
On Friday, study author Richard Bourhis, a professor of psychology at the Université du Québec à Montréal, presented preliminary results of his research on anglophones’ and francophones’ attitudes on migration from Quebec at a meeting of the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN).
