The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) is deeply disappointed that the Government of Quebec is severely limiting participation in public hearings on Bill 96 and that it did not issue a wider invitation to Quebecers. Instead, government officials pre-selected participants with a strong bias in favour of the legislation.
The Committee on Culture and Education announced yesterday that it is holding public consultations on Bill 96. It plans to hear from 50 groups and individuals between September 28 and October 7. There are only three groups representing Quebec’s English-speaking community, including the QCGN.
