Description

From the CBC Digital Archives, online: http://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/bilingualism-finally-a-report:
French and English should be the two languages of government from airports to federal courts, recommends the commission studying bilingualism. The inquiry known as the B&B Commission releases its final report today -- four years after it began. It's been so long that in this CBC Television clip, reporter Ron Collister can't remember what B&B stands for. Commission members say that protecting French culture at the federal level is not enough. They found that 95 per cent of francophones live in three provinces: Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick. For this reason, they're generally in favour of regional protection and suggest that the three provinces should declare themselves bilingual.
