Thanks to New Brunswick that is. New Brunswick’s Government announced earlier this month that they will help with the translation from English into French of all the Vancouver 2010 Games documents. They pledged $60,000 to a non-profit group, Sport New Brunswick, to provide with the translation.
One would think that Quebec would have been a more logical province to come forward with such an offer. Still, New Brunswick (Nouveau-Brunswick in French) is actually the only bilingual province in Canada per their constitution. Quebec, for its part, is the only Canadian province whose (sole) official language is French. Canada has two official languages, English and French of course, so it makes a lot of sense for the Games to be bilingual.
