Quebec language censors discover Facebook

The OQLF has threatened a small business owner with a fine for violating Quebec's language censorship laws. Her offence? Posting more English than French words on her Facebook page she uses to promote her business.

The problem is not the OQLF. It is the language censorship laws. These laws are intrinsically bad. Censorship is an evil. The application of censorship will always make the censor look foolish by trying to regulate one of our most basic human needs -- the desire to communicate in our own way.

Here is how people respond to the news that the OQLF has discovered Facebook.
