    Dear Crikey, please reinstitute that highly sensible tradition, of announcing via Twitter, when the daily dose of Crikey goodness is released into the ether.

    It is some years since I was in Canada, but I recall seeing signs in Italian, Chinese and other languages in Quebec province. I was told that it was legal for signs to be in any language as long as it wasn’t English. Montreal does have an English language newspaper.

    The Quebecois even concoct French words that are unknown in France. Stop signs read arret (circumflex accent over e) and parking is described as settellement. In Paris last year these signs read stop and parking. I was surprised that several taxi drivers spoke to me in English. Eventually Quebec will be the only francophone state in the world!
