               Do you know of the new official language
               action plan Roadmap for Linguistic Duality
                  2008 - 2013 commissioned by Josee
                 Verner, Minister of Canadian Heritage,
               Status of Women and Official Languages
                   and Minister for La Francophonie?

              I have not had the chance to review in details. As a
              principle I support bilingualism and whatever can
Traverse      promote it.




Jagpal        I am aware of the general idea behind the action plan.




Perry         I have not reviewed it yet.
             The Conservatives' plan is long on promises and short
             on details. This fits a pattern with the Conservative
             government, which has a regular habit of promising
             billions during splashy news conferences, and then
             ignoring those ostensible commitments when drafting
             budgets. The new Official Languages Plan does not
             specify how it will be funded which, given the Harper
             government's record on keeping its promises, is serious
             cause for alarm. The Action Plan is based on the Lord
             Report on linguistic duality and Official Languages,
             which did not address the Court Challenges Program
             which had been a critical avenue for addressing
             concerns about language rights, and which was abruptly
             and unacceptably cancelled by the Conservative
             government and which is silent on seniors, youth,
             justice, and international affairs. A Liberal government
             will restore and double the funding of the original Court
             Challenges Program, introduce infrastructure funding for
             minority language communities, provide a new plan for
             federal-provincial support to official languages,
             especially in education, health care, and culture, and
             increase funding for institutions that teach French or
Cunningham   English as a second language.




Siksay       Yes.




             No I did not know about this Roadmap. How do you feel
Carrie       about it?




Lenoski      Yes.




Julian       Yes, though I believe that the funding is inadequate.




             Yes, I am aware of the action plan, but I have only had
Adamick      time to take a cursory glance of the plan.
Lebeau     Yes, I have perused the site.




Sweeny




Kormendy   Yes

           Yes. The Stephen Harper Conservative minority
           government ha waited too long to act on a commitment
           to the Action Plan for Official Languages. It required
           biannual consultations that the Conservatives failed to
           do. The Liberal Party of Canada plans to restore and
           then double the budget for the Court Challenges
Miller     program to help official language minority communities.

Gordon       Yes, at a high level only

Cabott       Yes I am aware of, and in possession of, the document.

pendleton    no, but now i can read up on it.


FRYER        NO
Pesik      yes




           Yes, I am aware of this action plan and I have reviewed
Maartman   the information online.




           I was not aware of the official language action plan,
           Roadmap for Linguistic Duality 2008-2013, but thank
Knighton   you for bringing it to my attention.




Crowder    Yes




           I am not familiar with this specific action plan by the
           Minister. I am aware that the Harper government has
           aggresively sought the support of French Canadians in
           his bid for majority rule and has recognized that Quebec
Smith      constitutes a "nation" within a united Canada.




Dhaliwal   Yes


           Yes, I am familiar with this. I am the Vice-Chair of the
Townsley   Delta Board of Education
Charrois       Yes, I have read the Roadmap for Linguistic Duality.




Allen




Mayes


Poynting       I Do now :-)




gildersleeve   no...I have not seen it as yet.




Bocking        Yes, I am aware of it.

               I have read portions of the report. Personally I have one
               daughter who benefited greatly from her 8 years of
Brindamour     French Immersion here and in Australia.
McKinnon   Yes.




Royer      Yes




           Yes, . And, I agree that linguistic duality is a
           cornerstone of our national identity, as well as a source
           of economic, social, and political benefits for all
Crowley    Canadians.




Wolfe      I do now, thanks for the link!
           I am more than aware of the Roadmap for Linguistic
           Duality. In fact, it was our Conservative government
           that published this document. The Roadmap is an
           unprecedented government-wide investment of $1.1
           billion over five years and is a clear indication of the
           Conservative government's commitment to
           strengthening the ties in our country, and providing
           better opportunities to both French and English
           speaking Canadians to understand and appreciate one
Lunn       another.

           No I did not know about the new official language action
           plan. As I have only entered the election in the last few
           weeks, and my studies in the last 8 months have been
           study and training as a Child Protection Worker for the
           Ministry of Children and Family Development, I have not
           been involved much with what has been happening in
           the political areana and the new legislation. I do
           apologize for my lack of knowledge. However, if I do
           become the MP for this riding, I will definitely make it
           part of my learning, as we do have schools in this riding
           and I had taken french in high school in my younger
Morhart    days and enjoyed them.
Blair          Yes




Higginbotham   No




Cadman



Arab           Yes.




Fry            Yes.


Carr           no
            Yes. Firstly, the Conservative government allowed the
            Dion plan to expire. This 5 year action plan introduced
            by Stephane Dion when he was Minister of
            Intergovernmental Affairs increased support for French
            second language learning, as well as funding for
            Francophone groups and French-language public
            services. It's goal was to double, by 2013, the
            percentage of young bilingual Canadians to 50 per cent.
            When the Commissioner of Official Languages Graham
            Fraser tabled his report earlier this year, he was
            extremely critical of the Conservatives actions, or
            inaction on this issue. When the Minister later produced
            "Roadmap," Mr. Fraser still expressed concern at the
            lack of commitment on the government's part of
            ensuring bilingualism in the public service. The public
            service has relied upon bilingual employees to provide
            services to Canadians in both official languages for
            decades, and French immersion programs have helped
            to support this. It is sad that the Conservatives have
            chose to ignore this important component. As well, they
            ignored his recommendations that more needed to be
            done to strengthen official languages teaching and
Low         exchange programs, particularly at the post-secondary




Warkentin   Yes




            The Liberal Party agrees that second language
            programs are very important, not only for Canadians
            who want to learn Canada’s second language, but also
            for Canada as a whole. Strengthening bilingualism
            must be a priority for the federal government
            everywhere in Canada. That is why a Liberal
Yuan        government will not neglect any district.
           I have read through the Roadmap for Linguistic Duality
Davies     2008 to 2013.




Murray     YES


           Yes, I know about this plan. The initiatives on our official
           languages can be a decisive factor in the success or
           failure of our immigration policy as well as in our long
Gulyas     term education goals.

Forst       Yes


Streicker   No, but thank you for bringing it to our attention.




            A Liberal government will: - restore and double the
            funding of the original Court Challenges Program,
            ensuring all minority communities have access to
            protections enshrined under the Charter; - introduce
            infrastructure funding for minority language
            communities; - provide a new plan to provide federal-
            provincial/territorial support to official languages,
            especially in education, health care, and culture; -
            increase funding for institutions that teach French or
            English as a second language; and - help provinces
            and territories use internet technology to provide health
            care in both official languages as well as deaf language
Bagnell     interpretation.
                Question 2
 Are you aware that Federal dollars come
into each school district to help support all
    French second language programs
   (French Immersion, Core French and
            Intensive French)?




As it should be.




Yes I am and I am proud that our Federal Government
contributes to such programs. .




Yes, but I am not familiar with the details of that funding.
Yes. In 2007, Liberal Party Leader Stephane Dion
pledged that a Liberal government would further
investment in minority-language education, from day
care through university.




I am not aware of the situation of every school district in
Canada.




Yes.




Yes.




Yes, I am.




Yes, I am very aware of Federal support for French
second language programs.
Yes.




I am not aware of the situation of every school district in
Canada.




Yes I am aware that federal funding occurs for French
second language programs.
Yes




I am aware there is an agreement between the Federal
government and the British Columbia government to
fund French Language instruction. I am however not
familiar with the amounts dedicated to the approximate
61 school districts in British Columbia.




yes




Yes




Yes.




Yes I am aware of this.


no


yes, it is important to maintain the integrity of official
language understanding and acceptance through
canada.


YES
no

I was a School Trustee for District 68 (
Nanaimo/Ladysmith ) and we worked with the
Francophone School Board. I am assuming that every
school district would receive Federal Funding for French
second language programs.




Yes, I am aware that federal dollars come into each
school district to help support all French second
language programs.




I am not aware of the situation of every school district in
Canada




Canada's offical bilingualism is an essential part of our
heritage, and should be promoted. I grew up in Ottawa,
and benefited tremendously from the Ottawa School
Board's intensive core french program.




Yes


I am very familiar with my own school district, and that of
Surrey. I
Yes.




Yes, my kids were in Fr. Immersion and I was in the
local Parents for French group.




Yes.


I am not aware of the situation of every school district in
Canada.

I'm aware of the significantly higher academic
achievement of schools with French Immersion
programs.
Yes.




Yes




Yes, I am aware that federal funding goes to support
French language programs.


Yes, I teach French in a French Immersion BC public
Middle School




As noted in the Roadmap, the Government of Canada
works closely with its key partners, notably the provinces
and territories, to help promote linguistic duality. I
support the continued partnership between our
governments.




Yes, as French is considered to be our national second
language. However on the coast of NW BC we have
seen the Aboriginal communities requesting their own
language come back. And being part of a multi culture
society, other ethnic groups with many volunteers are
teaching their own language to not only their own ethnic
group, but to those who would like to learn another
language. Remembering, the Hudson Bay Company
came to the NW BC in 1934 to begin the fur trade, we
are linked with Quebec through this lineage.
Yes




Yes




Yes.




Yes. As the MP for Vancouver Centre, I have worked
with the community to ensure that we get our full per-
capital share of funding.


yes
Yes, I am aware that Federal funding is available for
French Immersion, including late and early French
Immersion programs. I beleive that in order for the
programs to continue to exceed and expand, this federal
funding is vital.




Yes




The Liberal Party supports federal funding aimed at
second language programs. Building on existing
funding, a Liberal government will increase funding for
institutions that teach French as a second language.
I must confess to not being aware of the situation of
every school district in Canada with respect to the
support of French second language programs.




YES

Yes, I'm aware of it. I also noticed the increase of
interest in French Immersion progams in my riding.
People with common sense understand the benefits and
far reaching potential of providing a chance of having a
second language for their children.

Yes I was aware




Yes, I am aware that federal funding goes to support
French language programs.
On money coming to every school district, I'm afraid I'm
not aware of the situation of every school district in
Canada.




Yes. In 2007, Liberal Party Leader Stephane Dion
pledged that a Liberal government would further
investment in minority-language education, from day

Yes


Yes.




I am aware that federal funding is provided to the Yukon
Government to support French Immersion programs. I
am personally very excited to have been able to
successfully lobby to ensure that a Late French
Immersion Program was implemented at Whitehorse
Elementary School. The Liberal Party believes that
second language programs are very important for
Canadians who want to learn Canada's second
language, but also for Canada as a whole because the
strengthening of bilingualism must be a priority for the
federal government every where in Canada.
              Question 3
  Do you support the goals of the French
Immersion program? If you do, why? If you
            do not, why not?




Definitely. I feel French should be a compulsory course
in English Canada and English a compulsory one in
French Canada. French immersion is a superb way to
open the minds of children and make Canada a
respectful place to live in.
Canada is a bilingual country and I think it is very
important to keep it that way. Apart from its historical
and cultural signifigance, many people world wide learn
more than one language. Knowing two langauges in
itself is an educational asset and one that I believe we
should promote.




Yes. Communications is the key to success in all
aspects of life - economy, culture, learning, community -
having a second language makes it much easier to
learn a third....
Yes. The Liberal Party, and myself personally
unequivocally supports investments to enrich and
protect our two official languages, and my party has
acted consistently on that support since Pierre Trudeau
introduced the Official Languages Bill in 1968.


Yes, I support the goals of the French Immersion
programme. I believe the programme fosters
communication and understanding amongst Canadians.

To become Bilingual would be of great help to many
people in Canada. Not only does it open up job
opportunities, but allows children the ability to appreciate
other languages. It helps people keep an open mind.
Yes. Consistent with strongly supporting the Official
Languages Act I believe it very important that federal
government resources continually are provided to
encourage and stimulate French language immersion
programming in B.C.




Yes. For the following reasons: 1) It provides a
stronger educational foundation for Canada's youth. 2)
It builds more national cohesion and understanding. 3)
It is a bridge to even broader language training. 4) It
helps with Canada's international competitiveness.

Yes, I support French Immersion programs
wholeheartedly. I used to be in French Immersion in my
earlier years of elementary school. Increasing exposure
to French (and indeed other languages) helps to create
a more diverse appreciation for Canada's multicultural
heritage, as well as fostering greater skills development.
I support the goals of the French Immersion program,
but I am unhappy with the word "Immersion." In my
view, the word connotes separation.I can speak from
experience having been raised in a bilingual town,
Pembroke, Ontario, that during my school days, those
kids who spoke French wanted to practice their English
with me and although my parents encouraged me to
speak French to my French-speaking friends, because
they wanted me to have the future benefit of being
bilingual,those friends would not. The result was that
they learned English, while I remained unilingual. I
studied French all through high school and when I
graduated, I found I still could not converse with local
French-speaking people, particularly in shops and
businesses owned by French-speaking Canadians .
However, when I travelled through France in the mid-
1908s, I had no trouble being understood and
responding adequately in the French language, if
somewhat slowly! This told me that our school system
was doing an adequate job of teaching French for those
who would need it internationally, but for those of us
who spoke English, we were still struggling to
communicate with friends and business people who
spoke French here at home. The solution? How about




I support the goals of French immersion as it serves to
increase communication amongst the citizens of
Canada, as any linguistic ability is to be encouraged in
our youth. French obviously as our official second
language should be the government's focus of support.




I support French Immersion programs.
Yes. My own kids were in French immersion in Ontario
until they moved to the United States. Learning a
second language is very valuable, and this would be
true even if Canada were not officially bilingual. My wife
and stepdaughter are Colombian, and I am attempting
to become bilingual in Spanish.

I do support the goals of the French Immersion program
as it is an important part of our Canadian identity and it's
a great opportunity for our children to learn a second
language, providing them with opportunities in the
workplace and the ability to converse with other
Canadians that will last a lifetime. My family members
have benefited from this opportunity.




yes
Yes, fortunately my parents had the wisdom to enroll me
in French Immersion. I took part in several French
language exchanges and since graduating have worked
over seas in France.


Yes. Both my children were in French Immersion
because we value both of Canada's official languages.
Absolutely. I support the goals of French Immersion.
The program will give those participating richer lives.
They in turn will enrich the lives of other Canadians.
Students in French Immersion will give the nation a
stronger sence of unity and help develop a better
understanding between the major language groups in
the country.
yes, I would encourage anyone to think of the necessity
to know French in a country that is by-lingual French
and English.
yes, in some locations in canada it is the best
educational opportunity going for canadian students and
is necessary for the continued acceptance of french as
an official language of canada in the english speaking
provinces.


YES
Yes I do - I see the importance of more Canadians
speaking both official languages; in addition it would
help to preserver canadian cultural heritage.




Yes. I support the goals of French immersion as an
important means to increase communication amongst
the citizens of Canada.




Yes, I support the goals of the French Immersion
program. The Green Party is in favour of bilingualism
and the richness and diversity it brings to Canadian
society. Two of my own children were involved in the
French Immersion program.

I support the goals of French immersion as a way not
only to improve communication between Canadians and
other world citizens, but also because of the beneficial
effects on the brain of learning another language.




Je pense que touts etudiants Canadiens ont la droite a
l'education francais. Les programmes d'immersion
fournissent ca droite importante.
Yes, I support the goals of the French Immersion
program. Immersing yourself in a language is the best
way to learn; and by learning French, students enrich
their lives and improve their job prospects. I fully
support the French Immersion program.

Yes, I support the goals of French immersion as an
important means to increase communication amongst
the citizens of Canada.
Yes, I support the goals of the French Immersion
program, especially for K-3. Neuroscientists have shown
that the brains of young children are wired for language
acquisition and when in an environment where a
second, or third, language is spoken children absorb the
language much more easily. In our global village having
citizens with language skills is not only a competitive
advantage, it helps to forge cultural links between the
nations of Canada and throughout the world. For
Canada's young people and new citizens to thrive and
remain competitive economically, we must invest more
in education and training.




Mais Oui. I support Canadian diversity and the Cultural
Mosaic.

Yes. I appreciate what it can do to bridge the gap
between Quebec and the rest of Canada, and I
understand that students involved in french immersion ,
often tend to do better academically. Promotes an
appreciation for a different culture in Canada.

Yes, definitely. It is a way to increase communication
between Canadians. In addition, it is increasingly useful
in our global economy.
I very much support French Immersion. Being a bi-
lingual country has given us a greater ability to
understand other countries and our many and varied
immigrants.
Yes. Both of my children, one now in grade 11 and the
other in grade 7, have been in the french immersion
program since kindergarten.         I think that being fluent
in a second language, any language, is a great asset to
anyone. It helps the brain to work better, and it provides
contrast and comparison to one's milk language so that
it, too, is better understood. It opens a window into other
cultures and other ways of thought, and opens the door
to new opportunities.
Absolutely. My husband is a francophone from Quebec
and his two children have maintained their culture
thanks to federal policies that, in the past, have
supported french culture throughout Canada. My
husband and I support french as an official language
and he serves as Director on the board of the Maison de
la Francophonie de Vancouver.




I strongly support French Immersion programs in British
Columbia. As I note above, bilingualism is a very
important part of heritage and Canadian identity. It is a
source of enormous cultural wealth.

Yes I do and I teach at Banting Ecole, Coquitlam. I value
the opportunity that I have to teach young Canadians
English and French courses.




Every parent should decide for themselves if French
Immersion is right for their family. I personally see great
benefit in the program. I believe having a working
knowledge of both our official languages is a great
advantage for our youth.




I do support the French Immersion program, however; I
have heard over the years why French? We are so
remote from the Ottawa and Quebec, why not the local
native languages? I believe in education and giving
students opportunities to expand their thinking and
exposing them not only to languages but cultures. This
is what Canada is built on, not one more superior than
another, but being able to communicate and respect
everyone.
Yes - I believe the cultural tapestry, heritage and
diversity of Canada defines Canada. French programs
are part of that. Communication is the oil that makes the
nation run. Understanding builds relationships, resolves
conflicts, inspires common goals and builds true respect
and is the core of national connection.




Yes, My children attended French Immersionadn my
daughter graduated from UVic in Frech. Today she
teaches ESL and Kindergarten




Yes, I do do support the goals of the French Immersion
program. Bilingualism is supported by a majority of
Canadians, and is an important part of our Canadian
culture.
I completely support the goals of the French Immersion
program. Not only because of the historical reasons,
but because we are a bilingual country and it is practical
in today's global economy to be bilingual. After all, both
English and French are the Canadian languages of
trade.
yes, I was formerly a teacher of French, I have a
Masters Degree in French Language and Literature. I
support bilingualism in Canada
On my campaign team, i've got a group of dedicated,
young volunteers. Some of them were in French
Immersion programs. In speaking with them, and
learning of their experiences, not only did French
Immersion open up an entire new array of job, leisure
and travel opportunities for them, but it allowed them to
better understand the culture of a significant part of the
population of Canada, and the world. My
communications director, even as an anglophone
Canadian, told me of his French Immersion experience
in B.C. allowing him to even live in a small francophone
town in Quebec, with a Frnech speaking family while
studying there. In my riding, which is blessed by being
one of the most ethnically diverse in all of Canada,
French is spoken in various places. This is not only true
of our French-Canadian neighbours, but those of African
and European descent as well. Also, our wonderful
Aboriginal community makes up about 6% of our riding,
and many individuals in their community speak French.
As a result, I am absolutely supportive of the goals of
French Immersion. In British Columbia, a largely
anglophone province, we have an entire generation now
in the workforce who grew up with French Immersion,
Yes. Greater ability to communicate in both official
languages is important to national unity and
understanding. Also, learning to speak multiple
languages in general is beneficial educationally.




While French immersion programs are under provincial
jurisdiction, the Liberal Party agrees with the objective of
the programs and would work in partnership with the
provinces to reach their goals.
I do support the goals of the French immersion
program. Not only does the program enhance
communication between Canadians, but also
recognises our country's history and culture.
YES. Learning more than your native language is a big
asset for expanding your horizons and access to other
cultures. And for a Canadian, learning French as a
second language is almost an imperative in order to
participate to the fullest in life in Canada, and have more
jobs open to you, especially in the Federal public
service.

I fully support the goals of the French Immersion
program. It is crucial for our future to be able to
communicate. With the arrival of the electonic age,
email, online collaboration, it is even more important to
make ourself understood in this borderless new Reality.




While French immersion programs are under provincial
jurisdiction, the Liberal Party agrees with the objective of
the programs and would work in partnership with the
provinces to reach their goals.
Yes I do, children are more adaptable to learning at an
early age, I learned French in high school and found it
very difficult and was not so interested, so I didn't keep it
up which I regret now.




I strongly support French Immersion programs in British
Columbia. As I note above, bilingualism is a very
important part of heritage and Canadian identity. It is a
source of enormous cultural wealth.
On whether I support the goals of French immersion, I
absolutely support the goals of French immersion as an
important means to increase communication amongst
the citizens of Canada, and as a part of our national
commitment to multiculturism.




Yes. The Liberal Party unequivocally supports
investments to enrich and protect our two official
languages, and we have acted consistently on that
support since Pierre Trudeau introduced the Official
Languages Bill in 1968.
I support the goals of French immersion as an
important means to increase communication amongst
the citizens of Canada.
Yes. It's a wonderful educational opportunity for
children; among other things, knowing another language
makes us more culturally diverse.




The Liberal Party agrees with the objectives of French
Immersion programs and is dedicated to working in
partnership with the provinces and territories (whose
jurisdiction they fall under) to ensure these programs
meet their goals.
               Question 4
 Do you believe federal funding for French
  second language education programs
   should be maintained, increased or
            decreased? Why?




Yes I believe federal $$ should be invested in
bilingualism. French immersion in English Canada and
"Immersion anglaise" in French Canada. funding could
certainly be increased. I believe acquiring a second and
3rd language is making people better, allowing them to
understand the "other" and respect other cultures.

I do believe federal funding for French second language
education programs should at the very least be
maintained. We should also work with the provinces to
ensure it is being used efficiently and explore options for
increasing support.


At least sustained, Increased if possible according to
assessment of the other educational funding needs that
must be increased. I feel it is time that Canada also
looked at offering our youth the opportunity to have
more other languages offered in our education also.
A Liberal government will increase funding for
institutions that teach French or English as a second
language. We will support minority language education
at all levels and to the fullest extent possible. We
believe that the federal government has an obligation to
give Canadians access to the richness of our two official
languages.

I believe federal funding for French as a second
language should be maintained at it's current levels, and
after review, may need increased funding in the years
ahead.




Without knowing more, I would have to say maintained.


I'm sure such programs could use an increase in
funding, particularly given that interest is high and
enrolment is growing.

Increased. The demand for French second language is
increasing. This is good for Canada's future and national
cohesion, and also for Canada's competitiveness
abroad. Second-language training is a wonderful bridge
to third and fourth language training. I believe that
countries which have multilingual abilities in their
population have a more effective sales force abroad.
Federal funding for French second language education
programs should, at the very least, be maintained, and
increased if fiscally possible. Increased second (and
indeed third-, forth-, etc.) language programs will allow
more Canadians to further increase our skills, gain a
greater understanding of other cultures and enrich our
lives.
I cannot answer this question, because I do not have
knowledge of the specific areas that are funded.
Certainly, equal funding of both French and English
education should be in place to ensure that French
Canadians can speak English and vice-versa. Based on
the solution mentioned above, it would follow naturally
that funding would be equal.




Certainly Federal funding for French as a second
language should be maintained and after review, may
be increased dependent on our financial situation.




Yes I believe federal funding for French second
language education programs should be maintained to
help Canadians fulfill their potential and contribute to
their nationality.
The federal funding should be what is needed according
to demand, which likely means it should be increased,
as I know there never seem to be enough spaces
available in French immersion.




Yes the funding should be maintained and should be
reviewed on a regular bases in order to insure funding is
adequate to support future students and programs.




increased to foster more bilingualism as a matter of
national unity


Increased. It is an extremely important part of Canadian
education.

Increased. To improve an appreciation of both cultures,
increase the sense of community across our nation,
improve economic and cultural opportunities.




I believe Federal funding should be increased.


increased




maintained or increased depending on the level already
in existence.

HAVE NO IDEA OF NUMBERS INVOLVED SO
CANNOT GIVE INTELLIGENT ANSWER
The funding should be based on demands - therefore it
should increase if the demands for French as second
language increases that all students are able to attend
French language classes.


At this time I would say at a minimum it must be
maintained and upon review and in future years we may
wish to increase to ensure we meet the needs of
appropriate funding levels for the programs.

I believe that the funding for French second language
education programs should be maintained, and
increased as the numbers of students enrolled in such
programs increase. We are a bilingual country which
expects its leaders to be bilingual. We need to support
that through adequate funding for the necessary
education programs.




I would maintain federal funding, which after review,
may need increasing in the years ahead.

The Green Party of Canada would increase federal
transfer payments to Provincial Education Ministries.
Education is a provincial responsibility under Canada's
constitution, but provinces must have the funding they
need to provide high-quality public education. Along
with french, I believe our school should offer training in
all major languages of the Pacific Rim, including
Spanish, Cantonese, Korean, Russian, etc.
A new Liberal government will increase funding for
institutions that teach French or English as a second
language. Teaching Canadians a second language
opens up business opportunities, enriches lives and
strengthens the unity of our great country.


I would maintain fedeal funding which after review may
need increasing in the years ahead.
Maintained or increased and they should be accessable
and affordable so anyone who wants to learn has the
opportunity. We will improve exchange programs that
allow Canadians from one part of the country to study in
other regions.




At least maintained. Increases should come with
enrollment and entrance should be encouraged.




Shoud be increased as long as enrollment continues to
increase, and I understand that this program is still very
much in demand in most communities.

I would maintain federal funding for FSL education
programs. The funding may need increasing in the near
future.

By increasing French Immersion we build not just the
skills in both official languages but also the ability to
learn additional languages.
I have not at this point looked into funding levels, so I
cannot say at this point how, or if they should change. I
do support the energetic promotion of the program, and
the encouragement of more parents to give these
opportunities to their children, and I would expect
funding levels to be commensurate with expanded use.




It should be increased. The Harper cuts to arts and
culture have had a negative impact on all cultures but
particularly on Canada's two founding groups.
I believe federal funding for French language education
programs should be increased. It is important to
develop a sufficient number of programs and ensure
enough people are bilingual to have the French
language flourish across the country. That is, the
French language must become prevalent enough to
allow for a thriving bilingual community.

Increased funding, because I notice that in my school,
additional French assistants could be utilized to
enhance the French teaching that we provide.




I support the Roadmap's holistic approach to linguistic
duality, which includes an unprecedented investment of
$1.1 billion over 5 years. This approach invests in five
priority areas, including health, justice, immigration,
economic development and arts and culture. Identified
government action on these priority areas specifically
includes building the future by investing in youth.




I believe funding should be available to all education
programs. I would like to see French immersion
together in the public schools vs separate so that other
students know they can have an opportunity to learn if
they desire. Having separate entities leaves room for
division rather than unity... and learning is so important
and having available language to all is a good choice.
Increased - As should other linguistic and cultural
programs that will help build a national and global
community. Education that includes a focus on building
communication capacity is a great investment.




It should be provided with demand.If children want to
study in French they should have the oportunity.




Federal funding for French second language education
programs should be increased because of the amount
of unmet demand for these programs.




Funding should be increased if we are to meet the
growing demand for french second language in Canada,
and especially BC.


increased, We are a long way from bilingualism
I believe, as the Dion plan under the Liberal government
in 2003 brought forth, that investment in French
language education should have increased steadily to
reach a tangible goal. Funding without benchmarks
does not allow us to adequtely measure projects. Thus,
the goal of 50% bilingualism among youth by 2013 was
set. I am committed to meeting with parents, students,
alumni, teachers, and administrators from French
immersion programs to ensure that their voices are
heard when it comes to making the decisions that
impact the amnount of assistance they receive.

I believe it is a positive program and should be
maintained, with sufficient increases to allow for a
growing demand.




The Liberal Party recognizes the importance of knowing
more than one language in an interconnected world.
With hundreds of million of French speaking people
around the world, it is clear that knowing the language is
an enormous asset.
I would maintain federal funding which after review may
need increasing in the years ahead.




MAINTAINED. The budget is going to be tight due to the
economic crisis so we would not want to commit to
increasing funding until we have seen the books.


I believe, we should at least maintain the current level of
federal funding. Once we have the most recent
assessment of regional demographic data, we should
make the call for increase.




The Liberal Party recognizes the importance of knowing
more than one language in an interconnected world.
With hundreds of million of French speaking people

I believe if the funding was increased and used at the
elementary schools, it would be an asset to our children,
again children can grasp learning languages at an early
age.

On Federal Funding for French second language, I
would maintain federal funding, which after review, may
need increasing in the years ahead.




A Liberal government will increase funding for
institutions that teach French or English as a second
language. We will support minority language education
at all levels and to the fullest extent possible. We
believe that the federal government has an obligation to
give Canadians access to the richness of our two official
languages.
I would maintain federal funding which after review may
need increasing in the years ahead.


Maintained.




The Liberal Party supports federal funding aimed at
Second language Programs. We believe that these
programs are very important for Canadians, and for
Canada as a whole. A Liberal government has
committed to increase funding for institutions that teach
French as a second language.
                Question 5
In a competitive global economy, where 52
    nations have French as an official or
 working language, do you believe French
  second language education should be a
               priority in BC?




Of course, it should be a priority. Education is a priority
and learning french is NOT exclusive to acquiring a
better education in any other domain. Merci pour votre
questionaire. J'espere que mes reponses vous ont
satisfait. Je reste a votre entiere disposition si vous
desirez en savoir plus sur mon engagement pour le
bilinguisme au Canada.




French second language programs are important and
British Columbians should be doing what they can to not
only utilize them but improve them as well.
I do believe that all Canadian children should learn a
second language and french is a good option, but with
the signing of agreements that have taken place with
the North American Union agreements, (that I don't
support), perhaps Spanish should be taught as well. I
also feel that in BC basic Mandarin should be taught as
well.
Yes. A Liberal government will support minority
language education and institutions that teach English
or French as a second language across Canada,
including in BC.
I believe we need to educate our youth to meet the
challenges ahead. This would include a variety of skills
including language skills in both European and Asian
languages. French is particularly important in this
context due to our history.
No two people or groups will have the same priorities. I
believe all children must have the opportunity to learn
French in school, whether it be through the core
program or immersion. Education is in my top 5
priorities.




Absolutely. There is everything to gain - for society and
for the individuals involved.




Yes, for all students and parents that wish to take
French second langage education, that education
should be accessible. See answers #3 and #4.




French second language education should be a priority
in BC to allow British Columbians to gain a greater
competitive edge in linguistic skills development.
Absolutely, and I believe that all Canadian children, not
only those who speak French or English, but also those
who make up our multicultural population must have the
same opportunity to learn both languages as the need
arises. Schools teaching both French and English on an
equal basis would end any hint of majority/minority
competition. Whether my solution is workable is up to
you. Thanks for this opportunity. I will support your goals
as much as I am able should I be elected. P.S. I wish I
had made my French friends speak French to me, but it
was easier to play in English!




I believe we need to educate our youth to meet all
challenges that may face them in today's global
economy. This would include a variety of skills including
linguistic skills in both European and Asian languages.
The reason why French holds a special importance is
due to our own historical roots in both French and
English.




Yes I believe French second language education should
be a priority in BC.
There are many educational priorities, including French.
I would also like to see more emphasis on scientific and
democratic literacy. Certainly having more Canadians
speaking French is something that is part of our
heritage, and builds a stronger, more tolerant Canada.




Yes. I believe we need to provide your children with
every opportunity possible to meet the competitive
global economy. That would include a variety of skills
including language skills in both European and Asian
languages.
French-English bilingualism as a priority in canada for
me is a matter of National identity more than a relative
advantage in a global economy compared to say,
Chinese or Spanish, which should be offered as third
and fourth languages




Yes




Yes.




Yes. It should be a high prioity in all provinces.


yes


absolutely. even if we weren't in a global market
maintaining two official languages is one of the best
ways to expand the minds of our future leaders.
ABSOLUTELY. ALL MY GRANDCHILDREN OF
SCHOOL AGE ARE IN FRENCH IMMERSION--THAT'S
SIX OF THEM SO FAR>
From my own experience many nations around the
world adopting English as 'second' language. but that
does not mean we should not focus on French as an
alternative language of communication. It is always
more pleasant if you can carry a conversation in a native
language of the other person.
I believe we need to educate our youth to meet the
challenges ahead. This would include a variety of skills
including language skills in both European and Asian
languages. The reason why French should be a priority
is our country's history and the fact we are a dual
language country.
Although federal dollars provide funding for French
language programs in B.C., the determination of
curriculum is a provincial matter. French second
language programs are in great demand and how this
demand is met is decided by the provincial ministry of
education. The Green Party believes in working
collaboratively on all levels of government where
possible.

I believe that we need to educate our youth in the broad
sense - with as many skills and as much understanding
of others as possible in order to meet the future. French
is important in that context for Canada and for the world.

Our two official languages have always set us apart and
given us an advantage as Canadians. New
Westminster-Coquitlam has a rich and proud
francophone heritage which should be promoted and
maintained. Where public demand for french language
education exists, I believe it should be available to
families. Beaucoup plus d'information au Parti Vert a:

French is widely spoken across the globe. Intensive
language training like French Immersion helps make
Canadians fluent in another language, opening up many
business opportunities. It'ss a benefit to our economy to
make French education a priority.
I believe we need to educate our youth to meet the
challenges ahead. This would include a variety of skills
including language skills in both European and Asian
languages.
Yes.




In context yes. With so many people struggling, we need
to deal with homelessness, forestry, child poverty,
environment......... you get the picture.




I agree it should be available for those that appreciate
the need, that it should be ab option that is available for
our children.
In a competitive global economy, our youth need a
variety of skills, including Asian and European
languages.The reason that FSL education should be a
priority is because of our nation's history.

BC especially needs a greater emphasis on French
since lack of French awareness leaves us less able to
speak on issues that cross the nation.
Yes. French is indeed an important language in the
world, and is a significant part of our Canadian heritage.
But more than that, it is good for our kids; not only
intellectually, but in opening opportunities, and
enhancing quality of life.




French as an official language should be a priority
simply because we are bilingual country. That French is
spoken in 52 nations gives us an edge over other
members of the Francophonie internationale.
I believe French language education should indeed be a
priority in BC education. As I mentioned above, it is not
only a source of great cultural wealth, but opens up
economic and diplomatic opportunities around the
world. For more on this, please see our plan for Arts &
Culture in Canada at
http://www.greenparty.ca/en/policy/artsandculture
Yes, because without it we would not be supporting the
efforts of French-speaking Canadians, whos efforts in
the past have provided us with the great opportunities
we have in our country today.


Decisions on education are principally a provincial
jurisdiction. However, the federal government does play
an important role in promotion of bilingualism in Canada
and will continue to do so. The Roadmap for Linguistic
Duality demonstrates the Conservative Party's long term
commitment to this goal, while at the same time
respecting the decisions made by the Government of
British Columbia in areas under its jurisdiction.


Learning is a priority, and should be available to all
those who would like to learn. Young and old, having
choices of languages is a blessing. To say one is more
dominate and priority is not good, it causes people to
think that their way of thinking is wrong and something is
wrong with their own mother tongue.        I would like to
see this survey not only to the candidates but all British
Columbians. Let the people decide what is priority when
it comes to language.       Thank you for this opportunity.
Please let me know where I may find the results of this
survey. Thank you. Corinna Morhart
Yes

It should certainly be available and an elective. I grew
upwith French in school and I have always believed that
learning a languague is learning the culture. It is good
for every child tolknow another languaue and French
lhas deep roots in Canada. It makes sense. JudyH




Yes.




Yes, I definitely believe French second language
education should be an important priority.


yes
Absolutely. Even in countries where French is not an
official or working language, there are still francophone
communities. But in speaking with French Immersion
alumni, the language itself is not the only thing that
helps them in a competitive economy. Rather, in
learning a language, their experience has helped them
learn about the culture, and the core values, as well as
the perspectives of the people who speak that language.
Its also taught them why language is so important to
one's heritage. As a result, French language education
should not only be a BC priority, but a national one as
well. I believe that today's generation of young people,
raised in a global village that is interconnected, with a
knowledge of other cultures, are eager to learn
languages other than that with which they are raised. In
Canada, with two official languages, we have the ability
to pass this on to them.

From a global economic viewpoint, language education
in general should be a priority, and french in particular
because of its importance for Canada.


While we welcome the new investments included in the
new Official Language Plan, even though it arrived three
months after the end of the previous plan, the Liberal
Party will build on what has been propose to create a
plan that will strengthen linguistic minorities
communities.
A Liberal government will:
restore and double the funding of the original Court
Challenges Program, ensuring all minority communities
have access to protections enshrined under the Charter;
introduce infrastructure funding for minority language
communities;
provide a new plan to provide federal-provincial support
to official languages, especially in education, health
care, and culture;
increase funding for institutions that teach French or
English as a second language; and,
help provinces use internet technology to provide health
care in both official languages as well as deaf language
interpretation.

I hope Wendy can count on your support in this election.
I believe we need to educate our youth to meet the
challenges ahead. This should obviously include a
variety of skills abd abilities, including language skills in
both European and Asian languages.




YES


Yes, it is very important to extend our future
generations' ability to communicate, compete, with great
success. A second language is definitely a very powerful
tool in supporting this effort.

Yes, teenagers today are more adventures and having
french would open up opportunities to them

On French language as a priority in BC, I believe we
need to educate our youth to meet the challenges
ahead. This includes skills in both European and Asian
languages. French has a special place in Canadian
language studies because of our own national history.
As a Francophone living outside Quebec, I know the
benefits of bilingualism. In my capacity as MP, I have
advocated for, and if re-elected, will continue to work for
increased opportunities for language and literacy
training.




Yes. A Liberal government will support minority
language education and institutions that teach English
or French as a second language across Canada,
including in BC.
I believe we need to educate our youth to meet the
challenges ahead. This would include all a variety of
skills including language skills in both European and
Asian languages. The reason why French has a special
important in this context is our own history

We're delighted that many families take advantage of
French language education in the Yukon.

The Liberal Party believes that knowledge of French
language anywhere in the world (but even more so in
Canada where it is one of the official language) is an
enormous asset. While we do not set priorities for the
Yukon government, it is apparent that French Language
Programs are a priority for many Yukoners. The Liberal
Party has been very supportive of French Language
initiatives in the Yukon both while it was in power as well
as in opposition. I have supported the Yukon's
francophone community in having access to french
daycare, have coordinated participation in discussions
with the Infrastructure Minister regarding funding for
Association franco-yukonnaise, and lobbied for
Canadian Heritage funding. I am also very proud that I
successfully lobbied to ensure a Late French Immersion
Program was implemented at Whitehorse Elementary
School.
Other comments
Successive Liberal federal governments have
demonstrated their support for French immersion
programs in every province, but, constitutionally, the
federal government has a problem, since education is a
provincial responsibility. Even federal funding of post-
secondary programs is an administrative challenge.
Liberal candidates are sympathetic to your group's
objectives, as our party's record attests.




We are sorry, but Mrs Barna could not respond to this
questionnaire. Szilvia is unfamiliar with the act and how
money is disbursed to school districts French immersion
programs in BC/Yukon, and with the times limits that the
campaign has forced on us, she does not have the time
to research the matter.
As a fully bilingual person who has a fully bilingual family
(including grandchildren) I fully believe that French
teaching in BC and Yukon is essential. While many
European countries pride themselves on speaking more
than 3 languages, many English Canadians think it
impossible to learn 2. This is not conducive to open
mindedness and lateral thinking. French education is
a must and must be financed accordingly. I will work to
ensure that throughout Canada.
Due to the sheer volume of e-mail requests we get
every day (sometimes over 100) we have to prioritize
our responses. Our first priority is our local
constituents. Requests from various provincial and
national associations, lobby groups, etc., come second .
If the groups send us surveys (some 5 pages long) it will
take longer and responses may unfortunately not arrive
before election day.




We are however dong the best we can.




Thank you for your patience.
Our campaign does not respond to email
questionnaires, however, if you or one of your members
live in Surrey North, Dona Cadman will be glad to meet
with you to better understand your issues as well as
share her views with you.
While I was not aware of the exact statistics on French
Immersion in B.C., I am very pleased to see that
enrolment in this important program is on the rise. Not
only is the French language a unique and crucial part of
Canada's cultural heritage, it is also one of the world's
most widely spoken languages. Deep knowledge of
French can only be a great asset to Canadians of any
age. I also believe study of any language is extremely
beneficial to any mind; for my part, I have supplemented
my own children's education with lessons in Chinese, a
language that is very important in my family.      The
Federal Government's endorsement of French
Immersion is a cultural and developmental boon to any
student who chooses this study path. I am very proud of
Canada's commitment to bilingual equality.
