MONTREAL, June 16, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Community Groups
Network (QCGN) kicks off its 17th annual meeting Thursday June 16 with three full days of discussions and
workshops at Concordia University.
The Members' Convention begins today with a joint initiative of QCGN and
the Federal department of Canadian Heritage that aims to foster
interdepartmental communication and identify avenues of collaboration
with the English-speaking community.
Friday, the more public part of our meeting, will begin with a panel
discussion entitled "A Community of Communities," which aims to discuss
the interconnectivity of communities within English-speaking Quebec.
Moderated by Graham Fraser, the Commissioner of Official Languages,
panellists will include Senator Joan Fraser, Townshippers' Association
President Gerald Cutting and Montreal Gazette reporter, Marian Scott.
Because of their unique roles as actors and observers of our community,
each is bound to have an interesting perspective on the topic.
