Snowdon district councillor Marvin Rotrand thinks that anglophones are underrepresented at the City of Montreal.
He wrote to executive committee vice-president Émilie Thuillier, responsible for social and community development, to tell her that many families and seniors would like her to consider hiring more anglophones.
“Generally speaking, there has been a real opening to the idea of attracting candidates from visible minorities,” Rotrand said, “and the problems of the past have been dealt casino with in a satisfactory manner.”
But, he says, anglos are not considered to be a visible minority, and many are bilingual and highly educated – very few apply to get employment with the city.
Rotrand called for a study on how more young anglophones can be encouraged to apply to the various municipal services.
