The owners of a mom-and-pop cupcake shop in Montreal were issued an order to redraw their chalkboard signs after receiving a letter from the Office Quebecois de la Langue Francaise to enlarge the French text on them.

According to CTV News, the owners of Cupcake Emmagination Bakery were frustrated by the demands of the OQLF, but will follow through with the changes because they don’t have the means to challenge them in court.

The bakery has until October 19th to change their signs.

    According to CBC, the recommendations include allowing cyclists to use sidewalks in some situations and permitting the Idaho stop.

    The recommendations also include increasing the fine for opening car doors when cyclists are near and for cyclists who break the law rather than giving them demerit points.

    Montreal Homeowners will no longer have to pay for repairs caused by water or sewage pipelines on city property.

    According to the Montreal Gazette, the old bylaw had cost multiple homeowners tens of thousands of dollars, including one NDG resident who had to pay roughly 30, 000 dollars to repair a sewage pipe 50 feet from his property.

    Projet Montreal recommended the city assume responsibility for the repairs with homeownwers paying only 5, 000 dollars. 

    In turn, Montreal's executive committee decided to have the city assume all costs instead, as long as the damage was not caused by the negligence of the homeowner.

    Quebec began discussions on a possible animal welfare bill that would advocate for animal abusers to be jailed on Monday.

    According to the CBC, the bill, known as Bill 54, would improve the rights of animals and make any offenders of the incoming animal cruelty laws face 18 months of jail time and fines of $750,000.

    The bill could potentially make certain halal butchering techniques illegal, as the slow death of animals will not be tolerated.

    Quebec has received criticism for giving unfavourable conditions to animals, notably through puppy mills.
