  • Quebec courts examine the use of English on signs and websites

    Dozens of small businesses are challenging the Quebec government's decision to fine them for violating the province's language law by having English signs and websites.

    During the first day of hearings today, the merchants' lawyer argued that the French language law is outdated and should be changed.
