Government Help for Minorities Involved in Court Actions - Commons Debate


Hon. Serge Joyal (Secretary of State of Canada): Madam Speaker, I wish to thank the member for Ottawa-Vanier for his question. I agree that this is one of the priorities the Department of the Secretary of State should consider. I have asked the people concerned to assess as soon as possible the impact of the request formulated by the hon. member today, land I shall then be in a position to report to the House on the financial assistance to be provided and the accompanying conditions, so that Canadians who want to exercise their rights to equal access to French or English schools under the law can receive assistance from the Canadian government.
