Bilingualism`s Bad Consequences
In Canada, many federal offices, even in Anglophone provinces, legally require proficiency in both languages of the officially bi-lingual nation.
Quebecers are much more likely than those from other provinces to speak both English and French. I am told this has led to Quebecers getting a disproportionate number of federal Government jobs.
Note the preponderance Quebecers among recent Prime Ministers. Vincente Fox for President anyone?
