The Quebec government is supporting a local Montreal resource that aims to reduce the cases of radicalized individuals in the city. 

In a report by CTV News, the province is financially backing the Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence with a contribution of 1 million dollars.  

In operation since Spring, the centre's features include a behaviour barometer chart, a phone hotline if people feel unsafe, and direct links to local forces such as the provincial police and the RCMP. 

Mayor Denis Coderre calls this new centre a safe way to remain vigilant without necessarily going through the the police.

The National Assembly passed a bill on Tuesday that will change how Quebec citizens get healthcare.

According to CBC News, the bill will include an increase in the number of patients that doctors need to deal with, and restricting access to in vitro fertilization for women. 

Despite these challenges, Health Minister Gaetan Barrette, who introduced the bill last year, said that doctors still need to find a way to guarantee that 85 percent of the province has a family doctor by 2017. 

In response, the Federation des medecins omnipracticiens du Quebec stated that they will provide some solutions such as superclinics, and ensuring that patients won't have to wait longer than three days to see a physician.
