Examination of Bilingualism as a Social Experiment
1 February 2000 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is less about Trudeau and the many marks he left on the Canadian identity, and instead focuses on his implementation of bilingualism in Canada and its effects through the lives of a number of Canadians who grew up in the period and took part in the bilingualism education program.

Ultimately, this examines bilingualism in Canada as a social experiment, and draws its conclusions as to whether or not the experiment can be viewed as a success or failure in the wake of the 1995 Quebec referendum on separation.

A facinating insight into a defining characteristic of Canadian culture.
