Title
Quebec's Non-Francophone Leaders: Factors Associated with their Mobilization in Communal Movements
Abstract
An examination of the defence of the interests of Quebec's non-Francophone population in collective action by communal non-Francophone leaders. Based on a sample of 527 leaders, the author found that bilingualism and contacts with Francophones was not associated with membership in voluntary organizations. In turn, bilingualism and association with voluntary organizations were associated with membership in political parties. None of these, except membership in voluntary organizations, were associated with a belief in the efficiency of collective action to defend the interests of non-Francophones. The author also found that no significant factor, even belief in the effectiveness of collective action, had a strong direct effect on the actual involvement of leaders in such collective action.
