Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow Byelection Candidate As Unelected
Ever the linguist & proud Haitian immigrant to Canada, Emmanuel Dubourg, MP discusses learning his native tongue of Creole & encourages folks to teach it & be bilingual &/or multilingual. I agree with Emmanuel, having a grasp of more than one language certainly is an educational advantage & is only a good thing for the Canadian economy.
"To conclude, I would like to salute all those who speak Creole, the language taught to me by my parents, that I have taught it to my children and that I am proud to speak it here."
