|Mike Ferguson Canada's new Auditor General|
This position is incredulous. I don't doubt the earnestness or ability of the new AG to accomplish this. Intense and rigorous French language training can have a remarkable impact, turning nascent candidates into, if not fluent, passable speakers, able to understand and converse with some aptitude. Parliamentarians are offered these services with often spectacular results (Stephen Harper parle français? c'est fantastique!).
