The pride of being a francophone resonates in the words of immigrants living in different provinces across Canada. “The French language is really important to my parents. That’s why they sent us to a French language school in the Northwest Territories,” says Rod Bryan who is originally from Rwanda.
As artist Patrice Bélanger says, living in French is a way of life, it’s a culture, it’s an identity. We have to protect our French language, we have to live it, and I’m very proud to know that the richness of La Francophonie is everywhere here in Canada.
