Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Canada province urges shopkeepers to stop saying ‘Bonjour-Hi’

Should an Italian restaurant be disciplined by the ministry for listing “pasta” in its menu? That is just a part of the requirements to do business in Quebec, Canada, where official and primary language is French. They recently passed a law that mandates businesses and workers to greet their customers and clients with the word “Bonjour.”

An official language is a language that is given a special legal status in a particular country or state/province, usually refers to the language used in courts, parliament, and administration, but not enforced to speak in daily basis. The question is why Quebec’s provincial legislature decided to mandate businesses to use French while the majority of Canadians speak English.

Enjoy reading and think if it is a good move to force people to speak a certain language.
