Québec Généalogie - Did you know?

In 1977, a law was passed in Quebec, Law 101, the charter of the French language. This law defined French as the only official language in the province of Quebec. By this law, education, communication, trade and the economy must be in French. A percentage of all music on the radio is in French and all commercial communications must be in French. For example, Starbucks is called Café Starbucks and Kentucky Fried Chicken is Poulet Frit du Kentucky.
