The Quebec Community Groups Network last night hosted a virtual town hall with Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade. This online forum provided Quebecers an opportunity to ask questions and convey their concerns to her ahead of the Oct. 3 provincial election.
The Quebec Community Groups Network hosts a series of virtual town halls with provincial party leaders ahead of the 2022 provincial election. The purpose of this series is to discuss electoral issues of importance to English-speaking Quebecers and our community’s place in Quebec.
The first guest in this series is Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade. Former radio host Royal Orr fills the role of moderator.
The Quebec Liberal Party would take a more inclusive approach to governing than has been done by the Coalition Avenir Québec, said party leader Dominique Anglade during the virtual town hall hosted by the QCGN yesterday evening. She added that while the CAQ government went too far with several controversial aspects included in Bills 96 and 21, a Liberal government would not completely repeal these laws.
The QCGN kicks off its series of virtual town halls with Quebec’s provincial leaders this evening at 7 p.m., starting with Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade.
Former Quebec Liberal MNA Thomas Mulcair writes that Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade is a very strong leader, but she’ll need every bit of help she can get if she’s going to pull off an unlikely victory against Premier François Legault next fall. Her chosen themes of environment and inclusion are in her bailiwick and she should be able to articulate a strong vision for real change. He also remarks that the party’s caucus has a history of working with Quebec’s English-speaking community and a reasoned opposition to key sections of Bill 96.
On Sunday, Quebec Liberal Party Leader Dominique Anglade responded to a rebuke sent her way by the Quebec Community Groups Network, which was not amused by her comment Saturday that, push come to shove, anglophones are better off with the Liberals than the CAQ .
“Epic failure to listen to Quebec anglos who are worried about Bill 96,” the QCGN tweeted.
“I disagree with the comment that was made by QCGN,” Anglade said after running down the list of actions the party has taken to stand up for English voters.
Despite a lack of concrete proposals aimed at the English community, Liberal Leader Dominique Anglade on Saturday said anglophones are still better off with her party than the Coalition Avenir Québec.
Anglade’s comments sparked a sharp rebuke from the umbrella group representing English-Quebecers, the Quebec Community Groups Network.
In a tweet, the QCGN accused the Liberals of “steering around a debate” for political reasons.
Quebec anglophones should stick with the Quebec Liberals even as that party is not debating its 27-point language policy this weekend, leader Dominique Anglade told reporters.
The Quebec Community Groups Network criticized the Liberals.
“Usually a hot topic at conventions, the Liberals are steering around a debate about language,” the group tweeted. “Anglade said nobody proposed a debate. Really! [This is an] epic failure to listen to [Quebec anglophones] who are worried about Bill 96.”
“It’s clear we want to work together, with all the population and not create any cleavages or divisions,” the Quebec Liberal leader said Tuesday.
QUEBEC — Any reforms to the Charter of the French Language must be done with, not against, the English-speaking community in order to avoid dividing Quebecers, Liberal party leader Dominique Anglade says.
