Acadian seaside town sends strong message to Tories and Grits about working with People's Alliance

A resolution from an Acadian seaside town council has fired a warning shot across the bow of the New Brunswick Tories over working with the People's Alliance party.

A resolution by Cap Pele councillor, Hector Doiron, was addressed to both the Progressive Conservatives and the Liberals, and says court action based on constitutionally guaranteed minority language rights could start if any alliance is formed with the party.

However, the People's Alliance, with three seats, has only confirmed an informal, verbal commitment to support the Tories for a year and a half.

The alliance denies it's opposed to bilingualism, but has called for an end to linguistic duality in some government services, such as school busing, and has urged the abolishment of the office of the official languages commissioner.
