French language steadily losing ground in Canada
Date created :
Canada's French-speaking minority is sounding the alarm: the French language has been in steady decline for the past 30 years. But recently the drop has been even steeper, even in Quebec province, Canada's Francophone stronghold. Faced with this situation, authorities - both at the national and provincial levels - are taking action, backed up with volunteers actively helping new immigrants to learn French. Our correspondent François Rihouay reports from Montreal, with Gloria Henriquez.
