Foreword by Donald Savoie.

"In 1969 the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism recommended bilingual districts as part of its federal language policy. Daniel Bourgeois traces the complex path that led to the 1976 demise, following pressure from the Treasury Board Secretariat, of the plan to create bilingual districts. Bourgeois argues for the reconsideration of this previously discarded 'cornerstone' of federal language policy, providing a nuanced analysis of social identity, sociolinguistic policies, nationalism, and minority rights and services. 'Canadian Bilingual Districts' also considers the Royal Commission's approach in this context of contemporary developments." - from the dustjacket.
With much on bilingualism and biculturalism in New Brunswick.

"Bromley’s Royal Acadian School, which opened in Halifax in 1813–14, represented an important departure in education for the colonies. It was non-sectarian and, like the local bible society, drew as its supporters a cross-section of local society comprised of liberal-minded elements both inside and outside the Church of England. Although the aim of the school was to attack illiteracy, encourage morality, and promote industry, it also challenged the existing notions of privilege and authority in society. The controversy inspired by Anglican opposition to its establishment one of the school’s leading critics was Judge Alexander Croke – would have daunted a lesser mortal than Bromley. Instead, acting as both teacher and administrator, he thrived on the publicity his efforts aroused. The opponents of denominational privilege, led by Thomas McCulloch, rallied to his side. His school also benefited from being in the right place at the right time and proved to be an important social experiment. It combined under one roof inexpensive education for the children of the emergent middle class, free education for the children of the poor during the serious depression that followed the Napoleonic Wars, and a workshop for the unemployed at a time when local society had not yet begun to cope with the relief of the able-bodied poor."

["Despite constant financial uncertainties, the school continued to attract the patronage of the city’s élite and a clientele of shopkeepers and artisans whose children’s educational prospects were extremely precarious in a town without public schooling. Because it was neither a charity school nor a private school, Bromley’s institution represented the inauguration of a middle way in education much needed by the town’s nascent bourgeoisie. The Royal Acadian School was one of the first institutions of colonial society in which middle-class self-interest and the interests of an increasingly middle-class society could be combined. Here charity pupils – black and immigrant – and fee-paying pupils –the sons and daughters of rising Halifax families (both Protestant and Cat holic) – were put through their paces in the three Rs, religion, and vocational training. Parents relished the opportunity to secure a modestly priced education for their children, and for the pupils the Royal Acadian School provided an invaluable start in life." - from Judith Fingard's Dictionary of Canadian Biography entry on Bromley (VII:107-110).

See also Fingard's "English Humanitarianism and the Colonial Mind : Walter Bromley in Nova Scotia, 1813-1825," in The Canadian Historical Review, Vol.LIV, No.2, June 1973. Pp 123-151 with a mention of this work along with The English Grammar Made Easy [...] as "the extant manuals" published for the students of the school(footnote 44, pp.132-3).

A sample from the Nova Scotia section:
Q. What are the inhabitants of Nova Scotia? A. The inhabitants are a mixture of English, Scotch, Irish, Welch, Dutch, Germans, French, and a considerable numberof Emigrants from the United States of America; also some native Indians; and emancipated negroes brought from the United States of America during the late war: these last reside near Halifax, and appear very poor and miserable.

Q. What Seminaries of learning have been established in Nova Scotia? A. There are in Halifax a Grammar School, the National or Madras School, the Acadian or Lancastrian School, the Catholic School, and the Dalhousie Coll ege; the latter unfinished. Besides these, in rural situations, there are King's College and its Academy, at Windsor, and the Pictou Academy.

Q. What is the disposition of the Indians? A. The Indians of Nova Scotia, called Micmac, are harmless unless provoked, and their honesty is proverbial. They are of the middle stature, faces broad, aquiline nose, coarse black hair, and complexion nearly of a copper colour. Their covering is a blue frock or coat, with a girdle tied round the waist, with trowsers of the same for the men; and a blanket with a blue cloth petticoat, and a cap resembling a sugar-loaf, ornamented with beads, generally compose the dress of the women.

Q. What are their habits? A. The men are by no means so dissipated in their habits as some prejudiced or uninformed Authors have represented them; and while it must be admitted that there are many confirmed drunkards in the neighbourhood of Halifax, yet it is also certain, that there still exists a considerable proportion of sober, intelligent characters in various parts of the country, who are by no means averse to agricultural pursuits, as has been recently proved by actual experiment. ---------

"In the early 1990s, a group of researchers from the New Brunswick Museum, the Universite de Moncton and the Village historique acadien got together to plan an exhibit on Acadia. Their goal was to allow museum visitors to explore Acadian history, society and culture through the exhibit. They also saw the need for a publication that would reach a larger public, and they obtained the services of historian Regis Brun to prepare its content. [...] 'Acadia: Past and Present' is a good starting point for readers who wish to discover the reality of Acadian life in the Maritimes." - from rear. Expunged name, else very good. 10.00
