Community & Conflict

A Study of French-English Relations in Ontario

Book - 1988 | Rev. ed.
Rate this:
The extension of full funding to the final year of secondary schooling in Roman Catholic separate schools and the extension of French language services were major issues in the last two Ontario elections. Opposition to these policies was strong and sustained. The separate school policy was challenged in the courts and several eastern Ontario counties and townships called for referendum on the language policy. Community and Conflict reveals how these issues have influenced the lives of people in one Ontario community since the turn of the century.

Community and Conflict is a well researched work in the classic community series tradition. An in-depth analysis illustrates the way in which people in a small Ontario town have organized their lives--socially, culturally, and politically--around the fact of French-English relations and how they have coped with the realities of separate and bilingual schools.
