Summary

"In 1969 the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism recommended bilingual districts as part of its federal language policy. Daniel Bourgeois traces the complex path that led to the 1976 demise, following pressure from the Treasury Board Secretariat, of the plan to create bilingual districts. Bourgeois argues for the reconsideration of this previously discarded "corner-stone" of federal language policy, providing a nuanced analysis of social identity, sociolinguistic policies, nationalism, and minority rights and services. Canadian Bilingual Districts also considers the Royal Commission's approach in the context of contemporary developments."--BOOK JACKET.
