Product Description


‘Haque’s approach is innovative in that it specifically focuses on the accounts of indigenous and ethnic groups that were ultimately sidelined in the B and B Commission reports and later national policy.’ (Rachelle Vessey)

‘Well written and insightful, this work is a valuable contribution to political sociology, policy, and culture studies… Highly recommended.’ (D.A. Chekki)

Finally, a critical review of official bilingualism. May 28 2013
By Machjo - Published on
Format: Paperback
Unlike most books that either uncritically worship official bilingualism on the one hand, or oppose it out of shallow Francophobia or more generally xenophobia on the other, this book takes an equally critical look at the privileges that official bilingualism gives both English and French Canadians, and also looks at how the B&B Commission managed to sideline opposition from inidgenous and other peoples to official bilingualism and the notion of 'two founding races' on which it is founded.

I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars since though it analizes the problem in depth, it does not provide any solution, whether practical or theoretical.
