MONTREAL, Aug. 30, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Heading into the final days of the election, the Quebec Community Groups Network is concerned about the lack of interest shown by party leaders and candidates on the real issues of importance to English-speaking Quebecers. And despite courting our vote, the parties have little or nothing to offer our community, said QCGN President Dan Lamoureux.
"When the word "English" comes up, leaders are mainly talking about cracking down on the use of English on signs and in the workplace," protested Lamoureux. "No one distinguishes between the fear and loathing of the English language and the threat it represents to the French language and culture and the English-speaking minority community which is more and more bilingual and continues to contribute to Quebec society as it has done for generations and generations since this province was founded."
