Anglo MNA defends stand on office for anglophones
By Angelica Montgomery, CJAD News
One of the only three anglophones sitting at the National Assembly says he’s oppossed to creating a provincial office for anglophone affairs, despite a renewed call from the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) and Canada’s official languages commissioner.
A similar office for francophones exists in Ontario to act as a point of service and a liason for that province’s linguistic minority.
But the MNA for D’Arcy McGee, David Birnbaum, says Quebec’s anglophone community is better served dealing directly with those in power.
