Quebec language police nab Montreal bar for vintage posters

An Irish pub in Montreal will fight an order from Quebec’s language watchdog to take down antique advertising posters from its walls.

The Office de la langue francaise (OLF) issued the order to McKibbins Irish Pub on Feb. 6, informing the tavern it was violating Quebec’s language charter by displaying the imported vintage posters.

The wall hangings include vintage advertisements for Guinness and St. James Gate Dublin, imported from Ireland.

Yaysus, Mary and Saint Joseph, ya dumb froggie idjits, it’s a bloody IRISH PUB! Were you expectin’ them to be hanging posters of the Eiffel Tower and the grape fields of Burgundy?
