What are you thoughts on it?
So the federal government is planning on spending 751 million over the next 5 years to make already billingual Canada fully billingual. :roll_eye: Is it just me or are we going the wrong way on this? :nodno:

having a second language can be a great asset

yeah but the problem here is that it is an official language, and all gov't jobs require you to be fluent, as well as most private sector jobs in major cities like Ottawa. The school system does not make kids fluent in french, and the kids that grew up in french homes are automatically at an advantage.

^^^ Plus Quebec is the source of almost all of Canada's problems. Distinct culture my ass, they think they're better than everyone else just becasue they speak a different language.

You red neck... ata boy
The only advantage of bilingualism is that we can compete in the frankaphone games.
I know knowing a second language can be and asset, but how can a country be unified when half the country cant speak one of the offical languages

i dont understand why the french think they fuckin have a say in this country over what everyone does
just because they speak a fucked up language that makes them sound handicapped doesnt mean the whole fucking country has to.
if any language pisses me off to listen to it's french

i wanna learn some cray hardcore foreign language...any suggestions?
