Mr. Speaker, Hochelaga was an indigenous village.
It is very symbolic to hear indigenous languages being spoken in the House of Commons of Canada. This is a huge step in the right direction.
My colleague spoke about languages that are disappearing and about older and younger people who sometimes no longer speak these languages. He also said that some people were teaching indigenous languages to others. The federal government could be helping elders in the community to teach languages to younger community members. I wonder if my colleague would agree.
Does he see a way that the federal government could help promote indigenous languages in indigenous communities?
