“Kathleen Weil is the first minister responsible for English-speaking Quebecers in the history of the Quebec Liberal Party and she’s delivering on a promise made by Premier Philippe Couillard”
Kathleen Weil, new Minister for Relations with English-speaking Quebecers, is poised to deliver on a promise made by Premier Philippe Couillard. William Floch, a former Canadian Heritage specialist in official languages, is being named to oversee the newly formed Secretariat for the English-speaking community. The Couillard government will officially launch the Secretariat Friday in Quebec City, at the Morrin Centre, an English-language cultural centre.
The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) has long lobbied for a secretariat dedicated to the province’s English-speakers.
