The courts are with the immersion parents

It would seem that the ill-advised decision by the New Brunswick government to scrap early French immersion has also been deemed insufficiently informed! Today, Justice Hugh McLellan of the NB Court of Queen's Bench ruled that insufficient time had been allowed for debate on the changes. Not surprisingly, he also ruled that this was not a Charter case, since it does not impinge upon the right of either language community to educate their children in their mother tongue.

It will be interesting to see what the next steps are in this process, as we move into the judicial review process ordered by McLellan!

Note: My apologies for a prolonged absence. I just moved, and my life has been in boxes. Regular blogging should resume shortly!
