McKibbin's CJAD:

As a visit from the province's language watchdog to an Irish pub in Montreal has stirred up controversy, the province's Culture Minister is defending the Office Quebecoise de la Langue Francaise (OLF).

Rick Fon, owner of McKibbin's says he received a letter from the OLF, complaining about the presence of English, and Gaelic only signs in the pub.

But, he says it is part of the atmosphere of the pub, and has launched an online petition to allow patrons to show support for his cause.

But the problem isn't so much the signs, as the service says a spokesperson for Minister Christine St-Pierre.
