FREDERICTON- The Acadian Society of New Brunswick released today a scathing open letter to Premier Blaine Higgs, accusing him of abdicating his responsibilities toward official bilingualism. The letter, addressed to the Conservative Party of New Brunswick, calls on the party to conduct a review of Higgs’s leadership, suggesting the premier has become wildly unpopular in Canada’s only officially bilingual province. The letter is signed by more than 40 individuals, most of them representatives of francophone organizations, unions, municipalities and one First Nation. Among other things, the society accuses Higgs of sowing discord between linguistic and cultural communities, portraying himself as a victim of bilingualism and lacking respect for the province’s Acadian and francophone communities, and its Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqey First Nations. In particular, the letter criticizes the premier’s recent review
