Bill 96, Zoom presentation by MNA Greg Kelley

In May 2021 the Provincial Government has introduced the above-mentioned Bill 96, tabled in the National Assembly and will be subject to public consultation this fall. Given the Covid 19 context, many of us may not have had a chance to understand what this new bill entails, its ramifications and the ways in which it will affect each of us in the short and long terms. Fortunately, we have a chance to get a better understanding of this upcoming bill thanks to our MNA, Greg Kelley who held a zoom presentation on August 24th for our residents to explain this bill and answer questions and concerns. Below is a recording of this webinar.

Webinar BILL 96 Part 2

As you may be aware, in May 2021 the Provincial Government introduced the above-mentioned Bill 96, tabled in the National Assembly and will be subject to public consultation this fall.

As many of us, given the Covid context, did not have a chance to understand what this new bill entails and its ramifications, we invited our MNA, Greg Kelley, PLC, to hold a Zoom info session for our residents to explain this bill; the webinar was held on August 24th .

We now have the opportunity and the privilege to listen to the voice of the CAQ party itself, and to gain a better understanding of its perspective and vision.  Mr. Christopher Skeete, MNA for Sainte-Rose and Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier for Relations with English-Speaking Quebecers, has agreed to hold a zoom session and talk to our residents and answer their questions and concerns about Bill 96 in both languages, French and English.
