The $12,000 Can of 7UP

Canada offers a preview of the linguistic lunacy we will soon be in for in the USA. Luckily for us, it’s easier to find people who speak Spanish than French.

The Federal Court of Canada on Wednesday ordered Air Canada to pay $12,000 to Ottawa French-language rights crusader Michel Thibodeau in part because when he asked an English-speaking flight attendant for 7Up in May 12 of 2009, he got Sprite.

“The applicants’ language rights are clearly very important to them and the violation of their rights caused them a moral prejudice, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of their vacation,” Justice Marie-Josee Bedard wrote in her judgment.

Note the judge’s name. Unless that’s stinky French cheese, I smell bias.

Air Canada was also ordered to apologize to Mr. Thibodeau and his wife Lynda.

If only we could be mugged by muggers instead of by Big Government. They take a lot less and don’t make you apologize.

What’s the difference? $12,000.
