Matthew's in (on) the News Again!
History professor Matthew Hayday will be featured on the CTV News Channel program Afternoon Express today at 2:30 p.m.
He will be discussing about the continued relevance of bilingualism and the official languages policy of the federal government. Hayday, who studies official languages in education, was a contributor to the book Life After Forty: Official Languages Policy in Canada. It examines the country’s Official Languages Act and discusses why, despite the act, bilingualism in English Canada is only slightly higher than it is in the United States.
