QUEBEC — Representatives of Quebec’s English-speaking community are welcoming news the Quebec and federal governments are having a fresh look at ways to deal with the decline and fragile future of rural minorities.
“I’ve never seen a letter quite like this, which appears to address and recognize some of the concerns we have been talking about over a period of time,” James Shea, president of the Quebec Community Groups Network, said in a phone interview.
“They’ve taken things to heart. There is no question there is a sense of isolation in our more senior community. We do have a generation which is pretty much unilingual English-speaking.”
