Quebec’s language police have ordered a small business owner in the Gatineau region to stop making posts to Facebook solely in English.


Eva Cooper is the owner of a fashion boutique named Delilah in the Parc in Chelsea, Quebec, which has a sister store in Ottawa.


Both stores have their own Facebook pages, and last week the Office Quebecois de la langue francaise sent Cooper a letter saying her Quebec store’s page could no longer make posts solely in English


Cooper said it is time for language laws to be updated in order to make the rules surrounding social media clear, since only people who request to follow her store’s page normally see it.
