For Conservative candidates who aren’t fully bilingual, running to be prime minister won’t be easy

Every Conservative’s favorite CBC personality Rosemary Barton weighs in on language.

It’s 2020, and it seems we’re in a place in Canadian politics again where the question of leadership is also a question of language.

Should the leader of a federal party in Canada be required to speak both of Canada’s official languages? Just how bilingual is bilingual enough? How does a candidate’s facility in both languages affect the ability to win?

Maybe we should be asking a different question: Why would anyone who doesn’t speak both languages well even bother applying for the job?
