The recent crackdowns by Quebec's French-language watchdog troupe (officially known as the OQLF) is actually designed to BENEFIT Quebec's English-speaking minority (a.k.a. "Anglophones") and small business. The global attention generated by the OQLF will spawn a new breed of tourist, "Wordies," who will flock here to eat, drink and take pictures in all the affected places.
The Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) has put itself on an inevitable journey to self-destruction in the last two weeks. "Pastagate" started when a Montreal-Italian restaurant was told that the term pasta violated the Quebec Charter of the French Language as it was not a proper French term. The fewer, legitimate claims of language violations the OQLF receives, the more they have to pursue weak cases and go digging through restaurant menus. The OQLF must investigate the most absurd cases they receive if they want to keep getting their yearly $19 million budget and keep their 248 jobs. Creating new divisions among Quebecers is a profitable business for them.
