This is a very unwise and sad idea I have to say.

What about the Cantonese? Do you afford the same admiration to those who share the same devotion to their mother tongue as the French? And try to defend it against those who would rather see Putonghua instead?

This depends on how many English speaking people there are in China.

But results is bad as the Japanese citizen find no economic benefit using it in Japan.
The best English speaker often are the foreign trade or foreign affairs careerist.

ha ha ha

Cantonese is one of Chinese dialects. Please go consult linguists who expertise Chinese language. So are  Shanghainese, Hokkien, etc.

Dialects are indepensible parts of Chinese culture.

I'd like suggest that Canada can implement trilingual policy and entitle First Nation, the genuine owner of Canada,  legitmate right to speak their own mother tongue.

At it resorting to unbased attacks on wowzers home country?
I remember some Pictures canada_man posted of his hometown.
Scripts of the local native tribes at the public Buildings,
additionally to English.

Just continue to stay ignorant against them, and keep importing that Canadian Asbestos.
It doesn't bother me any more.
