Trudeau's Influence on Equality
In a just society Trudeau envisioned that all Canadian would have equal opportunity's. To try and follow this Trudeau introduced the Official Languages Act in 1969, This gave an equal status to the English and French Canadians. Trudeau fought for equality between French and English cultures, wealthy and poor provinces, women and men in politics. He also wanted a renewed federation where French and English Canada were full and equal partners. To create equality between French and English communism made three major recommendations: make services for federal government more widely available in French across the country, open the federal civil service equally to English and French Canadians and improve and expand the teaching of French as a second language. This led Trudeau to introduce the Official Languages Act.
