Immersion delayed, immersion denied

Saturday, March 29th. Edward Greenspon, editor of the Globe and Mail questions the reasons behind Minister Lamrock's decision to end Early French Immersion. See a few excerpts below:

"The speed with which small children pick up a language is hardly disputable.... Again and again, solid research has confirmed this phenomenon.

Yet the government of the only province in Canada that has declared itself bilingual is acting in defiance of this gift of nature."

"It will be a grave national setback if the Fredericton government does not change its mind."
