EMERGENCY COLLOQUIUM ON BILL C-91
On February 5, Bill C-91 a Bill respecting Indigenous languages was presented to Parliament,but does it achieve what it was supposed to achieve? It doesn’t respond completely to the Glendon Declaration, but we need to discuss: What does it do? What should it do? Can it be improved in the short time before it passes into law? What concrete proposals forimprovement can be designed to be put before the upcoming public hearings of the bill?
We invite all those concerned with Indigenous languages and Indigenous language policy to attend an EMERGENCY COLLOQUIUM ON BILL C-91 at the BMO Ballroom at Glendon College, 2275 Bayview Avenue, in Toronto, on FRIDAY MARCH 8 (7:00 – 9:00 pm preliminary discussions) and SATURDAY MARCH 9 (9:30 am – 3:00 pm continuing discussions and designing concrete proposals). All welcome to attend either or both days.
Even if you can’t attend the Colloquium in person, we welcome written submissions and comments. We will also attempt to receive skype interventions on Saturday from participants unable to make it to Toronto.
Please RSVP and submit all written submission to the CRLCC (Centre for Research on Language and Culture Contact) at the following email address: email@example.com
