The latest results from our exclusive EKOS poll of Quebec Anglophones examine the sense of belonging in Quebec. When we asked how Anglophones think relations are with Franco Quebecers, 40% say good or excellent. However, 30% say relations are only acceptable. Another 30% say they are strained or difficult. In the midst of this two new groups have emerged. Richard Yufe is with Canadian Rights in Quebec. Mark Bergeron is a member of The Unity Group. They spoke to Homerun's Sue Smith.
