An Irish pub in Montreal will fight an order from Quebec's language watchdog to take down antique advertising posters from its walls.By the way, you can have Michael J. Fox and John Saunders back any time you want them.
The Office de la langue francaise (OLF) issued the order to McKibbins Irish Pub on Feb. 6, informing the tavern it was violating Quebec's language charter by displaying the imported vintage posters.
The wall hangings include vintage advertisements for Guinness and St. James Gate Dublin, imported from Ireland.
McKibbins owner Rick Fon told CBC News he will not take the posters down because they serve as decoration, not to advertise beer.
The OLF said it received a complaint about the pub and sent an inspector to investigate the downtown watering hole.
The inspector ruled McKibbins' bilingual menu, bar service and vintage posters do not respect article 58 of Quebec's language charter.
The OLF was not available for comment on Thursday.
