OLF peeved at Order of Pharmacists

A pharmacist who's been practicing in the West Island since the mid-60's is upset about a letter re received recently from his professional Order, which itself had received a warning from Quebec's Office de la Langue Francaise about a violation of the language law.

The pharmacist who brought this story to our attention and asked not to be identified or recorded says he's angry about an order from the OLF, which has told the Quebec Order of Pharmacists to have its members remove English-language posters and flyers from their pharmacies pertaining to Quebec's code of caution on medication.
Order of Pharmacists president Diane Lamarre says the OLF's directive was never questioned

As for the anonymous pharmacist -- a bilingual anglophone -- he as told CJAD News that he always serves his clients in the language of their choice.
