It is with great sadness that the International Association of Language Commissioners (IALC) has learned of the passing of Welsh Language Commissioner Aled Roberts.
“On behalf of all IALC members, I wish to extend deepest condolences to Aled’s family, friends and colleagues,” declared Raymond Théberge, Commissioner of Official Languages for Canada and Chair of the IALC. “Aled’s love and passion for the protection and advancement of the Welsh Language was palpable.
