Questionable spoons return to WI yogurt shop

A development in the case of a West Island yogurt shop targetted by the Office Quebecois de la Langue Francaise.

The owner of Menchie's in DDO says he spoke with the OQLF Friday evening, which told him his plastic spoons with English writing can stay until it makes a decision on his case.

David Lipper reported a language inspector visited his shop and said the spoons had to go because they're against the law.

He complied.

But then he spoke with an OQLF official.

"He said yes, OK fine put the spoons back and l will try and have a ruling for you by next week, I'm gonna expedite this file. And he said I want to make it clear, I can't tell you if the ruling is going to be favourable or not favourable. All I'm going to tell you is that it is now under investigationand we will let you know", said Lipper of his conversation with the official.

Lipper provided the update on the Barry Morgan show.

The spoons are back, for now.
