On Wednesday, a province wide public safety alert was shown on Quebec TV, but it lacked an English version.
According to CJAD, the message played for 8 minutes in only one language – French.
“I have a very elderly neighbour who does not speak a word of French and she absolutely panicked,” a Quebecer named Debbie said. “She did not know what was going on. She understood a few words, just the most important words like 'exit' 'urgent' all those kinds of things.”
The Ministry told CJAD that work is being done to offer alerts in both languages, but for now they're just in French.
Because offering an alert in both languages is apparently extremely difficult to do.
This news came just days after Quebec's Language Minister was upset over English Heineken ads at the Montreal Grand Prix that reminded people not to drink and drive.
Just another example of Quebec's contempt for the English language.
