Townshippers’ Association concerned over Barrette reform bill’s impact on English-speaking community voice
Townshippers’ Press release
SHERBROOKE, September 26, 2014 – Townshippers’ Association and its President Gerald Cutting share in the apprehension voiced by the Quebec Community Groups Network in response to the massive reorganization of the health care sector as proposed in Bill 10 tabled by Health Minister Gaétan Barrette.
According to Cutting, the most important issue for the English-speaking community in the Eastern Townships revolves around the notion of local representation. “In reality the principle is rather simple” said Cutting, “the bigger the organization, the smaller the English voice becomes.”
