THE JOUR­NAL’S FRIENDS In re­new­ing her sub­scrip­tion to the JOUR­NAL, Mrs. C. A. Colt Brat­tle­boro, Vt., writes: “Its weekly vis­its seem like an old friend, as I have read it many years. You did a noble work for tem­per­ance, were re­warded with vic­tory, and greater re­ward awaits you.”

LONG DE­LAYED IM­PROVE­MENTS In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce Press­ing

Roads Depart­ment for Ac­tion The In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce, at a re­cent meet­ing passed a res­o­lu­tion call­ing at­ten­tion of the Que­bec Gov­ern­ment to the ne­glected con­di­tion of the high­way lead­ing north­ward from the ce­ment high­way at Derby Line to con­crete con­struc­tion a mile north of Stanstead Plain, and ask­ing that prompt at­ten­tion be taken to re­pair this short sec­tion. In re­sponse to this res­o­lu­tion, the sec­re­tary of the Cham­ber of Com­merce has re­ceived from Hon. Ana­tole Carig­nan, Min­is­ter of Roads, a let­ter read­ing as fol­lows: “I have your pe­ti­tion dated Septem­ber first rel­a­tive to the con­di­tion of the roads be­tween the bound­ary lines and cer­tain Vil­lages of the Coun­try of Stanstead. We ac­knowl­edge the con­di­tion of the above men­tioned roads and will try to rem­edy the sit­u­a­tion this fall or at the very lat­est, in the early spring. Be­lieve me Very truly yours,

QUE­BEC LAN­GUAGE BILL TO FACE LE­GAL­ITY TEST The re­cent fed­eral cab­i­net decision to refuse the sub­mis­sion of a “ref­er­ence case” di­rectly to the Supreme Court of Canada has forced the Que­bec School has forced the Que­bec School Boards, wish­ing to de­ter­mine the va­lid­ity of the clauses of Bill 22 re­lat­ing to ed­u­ca­tion, into the po­si­tion of hav­ing to sub­mit their cases to the Su­pe­rior Court of Que­bec. The pe­ti­tion sub­mit­ted on 17 Fe­bru­ary 1975 to the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral in coun­cil by the Que­bec As­so­ci­a­tion of Protes­tant School Boards was signed also by the Provin­cial School Board as­so­ci­a­tions of five other prov­inces, by the Cana­dian School Trus­tees As­so­ci­a­tion, and by the fed­er­a­tions of home and school as­so­ci­a­tions both of Que­bec and On­tario. More than 60,000 in­di­vid­u­als were also sig­na­to­ries re­quest­ing the test­ing of this leg­is­la­tion. This support re­flected a Canada-wide ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the grav­ity and of the im­pli­ca­tions of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of Bill 22 by Que­bec and the ir­repara­ble dam­age it could cause not only to the wel­fare of ap­prox­i­mately 1,200,000 English­s­peak­ing per­sons in Que­bec but also to the good progress be­ing made to­wards and ef­fec­tive bilin­gual­ity in the other prov­inces of Canada.

The fed­eral cab­i­net hav­ing failed to abide by the terms of the solemn con­tract en­tered into at con­fed­er­a­tion, it now be­comes nec­es­sary for school boards to be­gin the long, in­di­rect, and costly process of le­gal pro­ceed­ings that could drag their way through the Su­pe­rior Court, Court of Ap­peal and Supreme Court of Canada. Ini­tially, writs will be is­sued by the Su­pe­rior Court will be is­sued by the Su­pe­rior Court of Que­bec in seven ju­di­cial dis­tricts of the Prov­ince of Que­bec. Th­ese ini­tial cases will be brought on be­half of the fol­low­ing school boards: Dis­trict of Bed­ford Re­gional School Board; The Protes­tant School Board of Greater Mon­treal; The Protes­tant School Board of Greater Que­bec; The Lake St., Chateau­guay School Board; Lakeshore School Board; The School Trus­tees for the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Lau­ren­ti­enne Dis­sentient in the Coun­tries of Ar­gen­teuil in the Coun­tries of Ar­gen­teuil and Ter­re­bonne; South Cen­tral Protes­tant School Board. A pub­lic ap­peal for sub­stan­tial fund­ing will prove in­evitable and gen­er­ous Canada-wide re­sponse will be re­quired. The mat­ter is deemed of the great­est solem­nity and im­por­tance, since the co­he­sion of Canada as a na­tion will de­pend upon fair play for the de­scen­dants of both of the found­ing races.
