“With only a single session left to go before the next October election, Kathleen Weil — Québec’s Minister in charge of the so-called ‘Anglo’ file – told The Suburban that the Couillard administration is determined to work out a “…real and concrete” action plan in order to preserve and protect the vitality of what’s left of Québec’s English-speaking communities throughout the province.”

The Minister Responsible for Relations with English-speaking Quebecers, Kathleen Weil, said she is determined to come up with a real and concrete action plan for Quebec’s English-speaking communities, reports The Suburban.

Quebec’s next budget to address needs of anglophones: Weil

“Quebec’s minister responsible for anglophone issues is raising hopes that the concerns and needs of the province’s English-speaking communities will be tackled in a concrete way in Quebec’s next budget.”

Minister Kathleen Weil held an all-day forum at Concordia University to hear from about 40 leaders of groups and institutions that serve the English-speaking communities of Quebec. Weil told that the Liberal government intends to present a five-year action plan on issues they have brought to her attention in online consultations. She also said the new Secretariat will become a permanent part of the Quebec government.

QCGN President James Shea said Weil’s commitment is a real, true agreement to engage the English-speaking community. Sharlene Sullivan, executive director of the Neighbours Regional Association of Rouyn-Noranda said she is concerned about a “backlash” against the new-found attention English-speakers are getting from the government.
