For almost 20 years, francophone couple Michel and Lynda Thibodeau have been litigating against Air Canada due to the airline not being French enough for their liking. Case in point: They once took legal action when they ordered a can of 7UP in French and were given Sprite instead.
But they finally scored a victory in Federal Court recently. And for infringing on their linguistic rights, Air Canada must cut the Thibodeaus a cheque for $21,000 and write a grovelling letter of apology.
So I decided to pop by the Thibodeau's home in Ontario and spoke with Michel.
