As you know that all federal government websites in Canada are bilingual(English and French)...I really wonder that, Should all provincial government websites be bilingual..?
Because some of provincial websites are only in English..

Manitoba http://www.gov.mb.ca English Français

British Columbia http://www.gov.bc.ca English

Alberta http://www.alberta.ca English

Yukon http://www.gov.yk.ca English Français

New Brunswick http://www.gnb.ca English Français

NFL http://www.gov.nf.ca English (There is French link)

Nunavut http://www.gov.nu.ca English Français Inuinnaqtun

Nova Scotia http://www.gov.ns.ca English Français

Quebec http://www.gouv.qc.ca English Français

Saskatchewan http://www.gov.sk.ca English

NWT http://www.gov.nt.ca English

PEI http://www.gov.pe.ca English

Why not.. as long as we stop at the 2 official languages and don't pander to every voter block we can find.

That's the VERY first thing that came to my mind as well.

We do NOT need them in Punjabi, Mandarin, Hindu or any other "non-official" Canadian language because some of our "poor citizens" still haven't learned to speak even ONE of our languages.

Yes, I think all federal and provincial websites should be provided in both languages.

IMO, if the country is bilingual then all government public sources of information, at all levels, should be bilingual.


Whether or not the country should be bilingual is another debate.

Are we talking 'bilingual' or are we talking french?

because I'd have to guess that in BC and Alberta, french is not the second most common language.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Columbia#Language

I think it should be if there is at least 10% spoken by the population is should be supported by the province.
