Businesses ask OQLF to cool its jets

A St-Léonard bakery owner and the owner of a restaurant in RDP are pleading with Quebec not to continue an OQLF crackdown through the pandemic. If true, a demand to translate “espresso” and “granita” is pretty extreme, even in OQLF terms, reminiscent of the Pastagate incident in 2013.

But these business owners simply need to comply. The OQLF is not going away, and in fact has recently been strengthened.
