L'École Guigues and Regulation 17

L’École Guigues became the centre of minority-rights agitation in Ontario when, in 1912, the provincial government issued a directive, commonly called Regulation 17, restricting French-language education. Mounting protests forced the government to moderate its policy and, in 1927, bilingual schools were officially recognized.
