We also reiterate our recommendation for the appointment of a dedicated Minister Responsible for Relations with English-speaking Quebecers.

The future of the Quebec Conservative Party and party leader Éric Duhaime remains uncertain following Monday’s provincial election, in which the party won no seats in the National Assembly. “Mr. Duhaime was one of the few leaders who decided to speak to our community,” says QCGN interim President Eva Ludvig, referring to Duhaime’s appearance at one of the QCGN’s virtual “Meet the Leaders” Town Halls.
No matter how one-sided the voting intentions for the 2022 Quebec election may seem, it is important for everyone in the English-speaking community to get out and vote, says QCGN interim president Eva Ludvig. “We can’t give up,” she says: “If ever, this is the time to vote.”
Quebec Conservative Party Leader Éric Duhaime courts English-speaking voters while speaking at yesterday’s virtual Town Hall, hosted by the QCGN. “A true Quebecer looks beyond being French or English,” he says, encouraging Anglophones to join what he calls a “historic alliance” with Francophones within the Conservative Party.
There is less than one month before the 2022 Quebec election and many of the province’s anglophone voters are still weighing their options. “When [Premier François] Legault was elected, he said that it was the government for all Quebecers and it seems that is not the reality,” says QCGN interim president Eva Ludvig: “Religious minorities, English-speaking minorities and immigrants are almost excluded and there is no plan to meet them and that’s a shame.”
It is more important than ever before for English-speaking Quebecers to get out and vote in the upcoming provincial election, says Eva Ludvig, interim president of the QCGN. Though some in the English-speaking community may be feeling discouraged after four years of “assault” from the Coalition Avenir Québec government, Ludvig continues: “There are about 40 ridings where there are a significant portion of English speakers and they do make a difference.”
