WAM Nov 11-12 Graham Fraser

The Official languages act was introduced in 1969. Many changes have taken place, and attitudes about bilingualism have changed. But there is still more work to be done across the country and in this province. The official Languages commissioner visited this province this week. He met with government officials - both federal and provincial - as well as the francophone community. Graham Fraser came into our studio talk with me about the state of French as an official language in this province.
