Tentative de créer un Ministère de l'Instruction publique / Attempt to create a Ministry of Education, 1897-1898

Liberal Party Educational Programme [1897]

"It is almost certain that our leaders, so committed to anything connected to the question of education, are first attempting the lay the following four bases:

  1. creation of a Ministry of education;
  2. uniformity of school books;
  3. improvement to the status of teachers;
  4. a more equitable sharing in the subsidies distributed to the various institutions in the province."
