A group in New Brunswick says official bilingualism in the province costs too much and favours francophones. Members of Equal Rights for New Brunswick Anglophones held a noon-hour rally in front of the legislature in Fredericton today. Spokesman Barry Irvine says students must learn French and many anglophones cannot get jobs because of bilingual requirements. (The group wants the provincial government to create an English Language Commissioner and scrap hiring policies based on language. New Brunswick is Canada's only officially bilingual province.)
