Title
Follow the Leaders: Reconciling Identity and Governance in Quebec's Anglophone Population
Abstract
Resolving matters related to identity, leadership, and governance has represented a considerable challenge in the community-building process of Quebec's English-speaking population. The author argues that despite a strong institutional network in the Montreal region where the majority of the English speakers reside, there have been important debates about how and by whom political advocacy and representation are conducted on behalf of the minority language community. For example, he points out that organizations delivering education, health and social services to Montreal's English-speaking population have assumed near complete responsibility for representing their concerns to government, thereby forcing the once influential language-based advocacy bodies to rethink their objectives.
