French Canadians in Ontario. Two reasons why the speaker chose this topic. The speaker as President of the French Canadian Association of Ontario, founded 68 years ago which represents more than 650,000 French Canadians of Ontario. What French Canadians expect of Ontario. The issue of education. An historical review. Quotations from the report of the Ontario Advisory Committee on Confederation on the question of French-language education. The separate schools system. The Ontario Separate School Act. The Ontario Foundation Tax Plan. An exploration of the issue at all levels of education, teacher training, and educational television. The cultural side of the French Canadian future in Ontario. The economic aspect. Some concluding quotes. The hope for a message of toleration, brotherly love, justice and magnanimity, inspiration from the spirit that might open up the era of a Canadian becoming, "from sea to sea, in every way, shape and form, a promised land."
