I've supported that for a long time. Right now for example, if a shop in Gatineau QC put up a bilingual sign in Algonquin and French both the same size and Algonquin appearing first, that would violate the French Language Charter! Even if French appeared first, it would still violate it since French must be clearly predominant. I would day that a business can have any of the following four languages replace French to fulfil the French language requirements of the Charter:
1. The local indigenous sign language.
2. International sign.
3. The local indigenous oral and written language.
Any public school should be free to have the local indigenous written language replace French as the written language of instruction, the local indigenous sign language or oral language replace French ad the spoken language of instruction, Eseranto replace French as the written second language, and Esperanto or International Sign replace French as the spoken second language. Any parent should be allowed to request a school voucher for his child.
Even federally, the local indigenous language or Esperanto should be allowed to fulfil the English and French requirement of packaging and labeling laws. And any person should be allowed to request a media voucher with 1/20 of funding going to Esperanto or International Sign and 19/20 to the local indigenous language. I also don't think Federal offices in Quebec should be required to provide service in English.
