The Montreal Casino, an institution owned and operated by the Quebec government, is openly violating one of its most cherished pieces of legislation — Bill 101.
There are 3200 gambling machines at the Casino, and many of them function in English only.
The OQLF says since 2007 there has been one or two complaints a year about the French, or lack thereof, at the Casino.
Jean-Pierre Leblanc with the OQLF says they are working with the Casino to get the machines modified, but it may take years.
"I can't give you a date, because it's a continuous process; new machines are coming," Leblanc says. "We have a person here that works with them but it is a long process."
Loto-Quebec says it does buy French versions when possible, but goes with English-only machines if requiring French means delivery delays.
It says gamblers should find French instructions on the sides of each of the English-only machines.
Last week CJAD host Dan Delmar's company received a complaint because it's web site was not bilingual. The OQLF said he had six months to translate his web site or threatened legal action.
