The CAQ government recently tabled “Bill n°40 : An Act to amend mainly the Education Act with regard to school organization and governance.” Only a handful of groups representing Quebec’s English-speaking minority were invited to appear during limited hearings before the Committee on Culture and Education at the National Assembly
APPELE-Québec is a broad-based alliance to promote the continued existence of English school boards governed by school board commissioners democratically elected by the English-speaking community at large. It believes that more of our voices need to be heard on the most significant transformations of our school system since the creation of linguistic school boards in 1988.
On November 5th 2019 a group of 6 out of 13 Board Members of QCGN, all from the regions outside of Montreal except ELAN, sent the following message to the Board members of QCGN. This followed on the resignation of their organizations from QCGN:
Dear QCGN Board,
We genuinely want QCGN not only to survive this storm but to emerge more united and representative than ever. We would like to see a return to constructive deliberation around the board table on behalf of the entire English Speaking Community”.
The Roadmap to Leadership Development Training
Saturday, November 9, 2019
9:00am – 4:00pm
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
|An introduction to the philosophy of Leading from Above the Line: a principle grounded approach to leadership and personal development
Why is value-based leadership important?
Aspiring leaders today seek a value-based social and organizational framework which will better reflect fairness in relation to their time/contribution and integrity. This training begins this important conversation on how to promote and sustain value-based leadership in our society, communities and organizations. Several issues within our community often deny the importance of participatory, democratic, and value based governance and leadership which limits the involvement of a broad-cross section of the community in change efforts which are sustainable.
Dear Members and Supporters,
I am reaching out on behalf of Black Theatre Workshop to remind you of our deadline for submissions for our Youth Awards for Emerging Artists is Monday, November 25th. This year the awards are to be presented at our Annual Vision Celebration Gala held at the Hotel OMNI Mont-Royal on Saturday, February 1st 2020.
Is The Montreal Police Service Really Serious About Working Towards Combating Racism? Reports Show ‘Systemic Biases’, When It Comes To Race, Still Exist In The Force
There is a familiar French expression, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”, which when translated says, the more things change the more they remain the same. Following the recent announcement of a class action suit, along with new allegations of racial profiling, the Montreal Police Service (SPVM) disclosed a new strategy, aimed at eliminating racial and social profiling.
According to Alex Norris, Chairperson of the Public Security Committee, the plan is the most ambitious and comprehensive, far-reaching plan that the SPVM has ever adopted to combat and prevent racial and social profiling.
