While the book looks at communities across Canada, several sections consider how British Columbians responded to the bilingualism initiative. It chronicles the rapid spread of the wildly popular French immersion programs from Vancouver to Prince Rupert, and the challenge posed by anti-bilingualism activists around the province, with particularly heated battles in Kelowna and on the Sunshine Coast.
