Skeete sounding out the English community

By Gordon Lambie

Christopher Skeete, the Member of the National Assembly for Sainte-Rose and Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier for Relations with English-Speaking Quebecers will be in Sherbrooke Friday afternoon, October 25, for the next in a series of regional consultations meant to gauge the needs of the province’s English-speaking population. “It’s to see if we’re doing a good job,” Skeete told The Record on Thursday, pointing out that at this point the Secretariat for relations with English-speaking Quebecers is three years into an initial six year mandate, making this a prime time to both gauge the effectiveness of the government body to date and also work on a vision of what comes next
The Eastern Townships is stop seven of eight on the tour when it comes to regional consultations, although the MNA pointed out that there will also be three follow-up consultations based on specific subjects like heath and services, as well as an additional online consultation meant to try to get feedback from groups that may have been missed in the first round. See full story in the Friday, Oct. 25 edition of The Record.
