I think you have the Canadian rules mixed up ! Last I checked CANADA is an ENGLISH country ! We in Quebecistan however have what is called a ''distinct society '' I on the other hand think it's a stink society ! Yes Quebec has language laws and inspectors we call the language cops. In this province, you must have your signs in French only or predominantly.
In other words if you want to advertise in any other language than French, the French must stand out. I'll give you an example of a for sale sign;
I thought I could change the size of the fonts but I cant. The French words must be much larger than the English.
Imagine owning a business and being told the language of your sign, if you have 50 or more employees, then you must work in French or get fined and possibly shut down. Sounds like the Gestapo Nazism to me.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
