U also lists complaints he received in the last year and com- plimentary and abusive. "Among striking trends the commissioner notes in his travels and tumammleHce is the stronger will of parents, especially English-speaking, to have their children learn Canada's other official language." he says. He also cites the federal fi- nancial assistance to the provinces for second- language training as commendable leadership and "thinks it reasonable to repeal last year's hope that money Parliament votes for language will be spent on lan- guage." In an interview in his office, Mr. Spicer said there are still some problems in the civil service. "The government has spent plenty of time on reassuring English-speaking public ser- he said. "In our first report in 1971, we suggested that unilinguals should have the right to com- pete for bilingual jobs and should have six months warning that the jobs were going to be designated bilingual. The government has done this and I think that is great. "Now. having done this for the English public servants, it's time that the government spent the same imagination, boldness and energy on defining the conditions in which French-speaking public servants can work in their own language." He described Air Canada's compliance with the Official Languages Act as fitful and sparing. Six or seven other de- partments, he said, are drag- ging their feet. "Others are doing well, and we did not try to establish a catalogue of crimes against bilingualism. but tried as best we could without pretention to say which departments were trying Parks, for example, are doing a hell of a good he said. "The armed forces have Hone well, the RCMP has tried. I've acquired a new admiration for some quasi- military systems who seem to be able to respect the act in a way that other departments have not" Service office planned for B.C. HenM Ottawa Burem OTTAWA The Canadian government's services and supply department will open a regional office in British Colombia in May which should lead to more federal government contracts being placed in western provinces. Services and Supply Minister .lean-Pierre Goyer told the commons Friday. He was replying to questions asked by Barry Mather (NDP- Surrey-White The B.C. member noted that the minister's department is now respon- sible for placing about II bil- lion worth of federal contracts across Canada every year. ;
