The 'Royal' Opposition

Kenneth MacKenzie

When the Gaelic College in St. Ann's received a designation by the queen allowing it to use the word "royal", there was an outcry in Cape Breton.

Some people balked at the notion that the college would ask for such a thing considering the royals' history of trying to eliminate the gaelic language.  The Gaelic College stuck by its guns though and said it intended to keep the designation. 

Now there is an effort underway to try to convince the board to reverse that decision.
