Christopher Skeete, parliamentary assistant to the premier for relations with English-speaking Quebecers, spoke at a press conference in Laval on May 17.

Anglophones and allophones are more worried than francophone Quebecers about the consequences of COVID-19, according to a survey released last week by the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN).

“Even though the contagion itself is not biased, its effects have been quite uneven,” ACS president Jack Jedwab observed.
