Montreal’s Anglophone against Bill 96

In the wake of the resistance by Montreal’s Anglophone and Allophone communities to the Quebec government’s controversial Bill 96 language law (which was passed into law on May 24), the second edition of a public event will play a vital part in how it helps to build a sense of belonging amongst Quebec’s English-speaking citizens through community projects that are being initiated by its arts, culture, heritage and education sectors.

Called “COM-Unity”, it will take place on May 30 between 12 and 5 p.m. at Concordia University’s J.W. McConnell Building, 1400 de Maisonneuve Blvd., West, in particular, its 4th Space area. As well, there will be a live-streamed broadcast on Zoom and the 4th Space’s YouTube channel from 12-3 p.m. that will be hosted by Catherine Verdon-Diamond.

The goal of the event is to showcase that Quebec’s English-speaking residents can foster a strong sense of belonging in the province during this turbulent time through a variety of projects that include videos, candid discussions and reflections, interviews with seniors, interactive kiosks, plus spoken-word and arts-based projects and heritage initiatives. 

Partnering up for the second edition of “COM-Unity” are the Black Community Resource Centre, the English Language Arts Network, Learn Quebec, Seniors Action Quebec, the Quebec Arts and Heritage Network and Youth 4 Youth Quebec.
