The Quebec Liberal Party will not create an office responsible for anglophone affairs, similar to the Parti Quebecois during its time in power, Le Devoir reports.
In a letter to the Quebec Community Groups Network obtained by the paper, a PLQ spokesperson says the PQ needed an office dedicated to anglophones so as to better defend its language policies and its controversial charter of values.
Spokesperson Marie-Ève Ringuette added it could count on elected anglophones to represent the community - and that the party represents the interests and concerns of all Quebecers with no need for a special minister.
In 2012, PQ MNA Jean-François Lisée was appointed minister responsible for anglophone affairs.
The QCGN and the federal Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages have both called on Quebec to follow Ontario's example and create an equivalent to the province's Office of Francophone Affairs.
