The QCGN says groups that are opposed to Bill 86 are being kept out of the committee hearings on the education reform. The Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN) said it is surprised that a commission on the future of school boards is not being heard – and neither is the government’s own advisory committee on English education. The QCGN said the government may be stacking the cards to garner support for its project to change the way school boards are managed.

Sylvia Martin-Laforge said:

The government wants control of who it listens to and therefore who will give support to them in their view…So, it’s a way of deciding what the outcome of the bill will be.
