Statement by the Commissioner of Official Languages for New Brunswick, Michel Carrier

Fredericton, June 17, 2013 - As an independent officer of the Legislative Assembly, I participated in the revision process of the Official Languages Act.

I have stated publicly my proposed amendments to the Act on numerous occasions. Last week, in tabling my final annual report, I reiterated my position on this matter.

On June 14th, the provincial government introduced a bill to amend the Official Languages Act. It is now up to the MLAs to study this bill and to take action to fully achieve the objectives of this Act.

I will refrain from making further comments on this issue out of respect for the legislative process.
