It is almost compulsory in the University and prac;(ically compulsory in the secondary schools, and-just so soon as we educate the educational authorities up to it the French language will become compulsory in the elementary schools also." So it is clear that the French language is not being as badly treated as some of our Quebec agitators desire to make their kinsmen believe. AH that Is demanded Is that every Canadian should be educated to speak the English language.
