Re : $2.4 billion per year on bilingualism


From what I understand, that money is used to support services in the minority language of each province, not to make everyone bilingual (which should be part of the education budget... which is much more than $2.4 billion a year, I'm sure)

For this reason, yes, I do think that Canadians (at least some) are better off, able to live part of their life in the language of their choice.

The one mystery is Ontario. Is the French population in Ontario so spread out and so large that it would cost so much more than everywhere else? I'm not sure, but I hate that French/Québec haters (see the Toronto Sun article's comments) are having such a field day about it. The Vancouver Sun's article is right, not knowing the other language divides us (granted I feel divided because I am bilingual and can read the hateful comments!)
