‘Language Folly: Eleven Official Languages’

When you’re foolish enough to declare 11 official languages {yes, you read that correctly, ELEVEN!}, as the Northwest Territories has done, you end up having to deal with the consequences: providing government services in 11 languages…

“The N.W.T. has 11 official languages, but during the last session the assembly only had full-time interpreters for Denesuline (Chipewyan), Tlicho and French, and part-time interpreters for North Slavey, South Slavey and Inuvialuktun… The plan now is to record proceedings of the legislature in at least nine of the territory’s 11 official languages, and to post those recordings on social media, said assembly spokesperson Danielle Mager. Interpreters will also translate whole sittings, from start to finish.

“The legislature is also aiming to make interpretations available in at least nine languages to visitors in the public gallery by the time it resumes sitting in December. Mager could not say which ‘Indigenous’ {sic, the CBC means ‘aboriginal’} languages would be added…

“Interpreting everything that goes on at the legislature into 11 languages is no simple task {! And just imagine the problems that are going to occur from mistranslations}. The project has been hampered by outdated technology, some of which was last updated in the 1990s, Mager said. The assembly is also struggling to find Cree and Inuinnaqtun interpreters…”

For A Few Dollars More… {July 19, 2019}:
But the government is short of funds for essentials…
“To make “Canada’s Food Guide” more accessible to ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} peoples, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health, today announced the translation of Canada’s new ‘Food Guide Snapshot’ into nine ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} languages: Dene, Inuinnaqtun, Inuktitut (Baffin), Inuktitut (Nunatsiavut), Inuktitut (Nunavik), Michif, Ojibwe, Oji-Cree and Plains Cree…”

Unofficial Languages’ (‘Indigenous’ Languages Act) {Feb.20, 2019}:
“UNESCO (U.N.) has declared this the ‘International Year of ‘Indigenous’ Languages’. In Canada, we have only 2 ‘official’ languages and current legislation seems like a backdoor attempt by the federal government to elevate aboriginal languages to a similar status; otherwise, there isn’t justification for spending so much on unofficial languages.”

Rebuilding The Tower of Babel{December 7, 2016}:
“The greatest barrier between people is language and the Government of Canada isn’t doing anyone any favours – particularly aboriginals – by erecting more barriers, none of which will help aboriginal youth find success in the modern world… The attempts to preserve aboriginal languages only serves the interests of the linguists of the ‘Aboriginal Industry’; they are a disservice to native people.”
