“There’s been some terrible news stories of English-speaking patients being told, ‘I won’t serve you in English because that’s my right,'” said the Community Health and Social Services Network’s executive director.
A year after Quebec adopted the sweeping French-language law known as Bill 96, the Legault government’s proposed reform of the health system would further restrict access to medical services in English, according to a brief by an anglophone-rights organization.

Under Bill 15, the government would create a new agency, Santé Québec, with the goal of running the health system more efficiently. Critics, however, argue the legislation would give Santé Québec too much power and result in over-centralization in the management of health care.
