The Quebec government is calling on Ottawa to provide help for the province’s anglophone communities outside Montreal.
Ministers say they are worried about the survival of those communities and are asking to give them a financial boost.
Canadian Heritage Minister Melanie Joly asked House Leader and Minister for La Francophonie Jean-Marc Fournier to share his observations about the country’s two official languages.
Fournier responded with a five-page letter to Joly letter expressing concerns about Quebec’s English-speaking communities outside of Montreal.
“I think we’ve got to keep in mind what are the problems to try to find, together, solutions to those problems,” said Fournier.
