MONTREAL – The owner of a small animal charity in the east end of Montreal is so fed up with Quebec's language police that she is refusing to take down her signs in English.
Sophie Fournier runs a not-for-profit dog adoption service and she has been fighting the Office québécois de la langue française for more than year.
The issue is Fournier's sign on the side window of her home.
It's all in English and the OQLF says it needs to come down – or be revised so that the English wording is in smaller lettering than the French.
“It's a matter of equity and fairness to the others who do comply with the law,” said Martin Bergeron, spokesperson for the Office québécois de la langue française.
“We have to be fair and it's the same law for everybody.”
Fournier received this letter in December.
