Our community can make a difference as we head to the polls in October
We have a voice. Let’s be part of the conversation.
English-speaking Quebecers are an integral part of Quebec’s past, present, and future success.
In 2016, the English-speaking community of Quebec numbered a little more than 1.1 million people – about 13.7 per cent of Quebec’s population. In a handful of ridings, members of our community represent the majority of electors. In others, the percentage of English-speaking voters is greater than the margin of victory for the winning party in the last election.
English-speaking Quebecers have a voice. Yes, we are concerned about broad issues – the economy, taxes, the environment – but there are many vital issues that are specific to English-speaking Quebecers as members of a minority community.
Over the past few months, the Quebec Community Groups Network has been reaching out to various organizations representing English-speaking Quebecers across various regions and sectors to gather input about their anxieties and priorities for action. The objective is to share the critical concerns of our community with political parties, leaders, and candidates who are seeking our support and get them to commit to positive change.
We encourage all English-speaking Quebecers to increase their awareness of the issues affecting our community and to question candidates on these issues as you run into them on the election trail. We also encourage you to share your thoughts on QCGN’s Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #AnglosVote and #Qc2018.
