Affiliation Quebec is fed up with the way the Quebec government overlooks the anglophone minority in Montreal. This development is reminiscent of the creation of the Equality Party in the late 1980s.
The province's major political parties routinely overlook close to one million voters in Montreal's metropolitan area, said Allen Nutik, founder of the fledgling political party, Affiliation Quebec.
He said Affiliation Quebec will give a voice to the city's anglophones, francophones and minority groups.
“There's nothing dangerous here in our program and there's nothing offensive to main-line Quebeckers,” said Mr. Nutik, a resident of Montreal's upper-class suburb of Westmount.
“We're just a party fighting for the minority interests, which are now overlooked by the main-line parties.”
