Acadian MPs in NS seek changes

More French services sought
Acadian Nova Scotians want a guarantee that they can get some government services in French.

The Federation Acadienne de la Nouvelle-Ecosse made such a proposal to the Hamm government last week, and Acadian Affairs Minister Chris d'Entremont said Wednesday that he'd like to bring a bill forward during the fall session of the legislature.

"Right now, there is no law. Right now, any service in my language is by accident," said Stan Surette, the federation president.
