The total real dollar cost of Official Bi-Lingualism is about 600B taxdollars and climbing. The hidden cost of lives and carreers ruined is unknowable. Pretty disgusting eh. Especially considering that it has not worked. Only about 12% of all Canadians are really bi-lingual and Quebec has become a fascist uni-lingual state.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. -- Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776--"If You Haven't Suffered Enough It Is Your God Given Right To Suffer Some More" Wm. Aberhart Alberta Premier
