Pointless to say “Hi”: Plante

Mayor Plante says it’s inutile to say “Hi” after “Bonjour” and merchants should speak French to customers.

Incidentally, Bernard Drainville is blaming the rise in English spoken in French schools on asylum seekers. Note that it isn’t a question any more of languages other than French – there must be some kids speaking Arabic or Spanish, for example – it’s English, that wickedest temptress among languages.
