“I like my services in French!”

Victorine Robichaud has lived in the Saint John area for about 30 years. She has witnessed firsthand the major progress of the French presence in the Port City. “It’s like night and day. People no longer turn around in the street when someone speaks French,” she said. Perfectly bilingual, Victorine nonetheless prefers to receive government services in French. “You feel at home; you feel you belong when you’re spoken to in your mother tongue. I like my services in French!”
