Rule #315: Bilingualism

 What a pain in the ass. 2 languages in Canada costing the country $2.4 BILLION annually. Not to mention it's a pain in the ass.

A report from the Fraser Institute claims the federal government spends approximately $1.5-billion each year while the provinces shell out $900 million. Ontario spent the most ($600 million), followed by New Brunswick (approximately $85 million, according to Postmedia. Dat's a lotta mulah!
I know I'm not alone on this. What's the point of having more than one language? Let's pick one and implement it nationwide! Honestly, I don't even care if it's French or English or Spanish (just not German, that sounds like an angry cat coughing up a furball) However, the facts indicate that English would make more sense.
Only 23.5% of Canadians speak French.
1.12% of the world population speaks french.
5.52% of the world population speaks English.
But hey, what do I know (except all these awesome facts)? Let's put it to a vote!



In the new world, Canada will have one official language so I don't have to turn my cereal box around every morning to see what flavour I'm eating.
