Red Bull Spits on Quebecers

Members of the Mouvement Montréal français (MMF) demonstrated on Friday in Montreal against the "Crashed Ice" event sponsored by Red Bull. Bone of contention is the fact that the event has an English name. Sponsor Red Bull explained that the event is called by the same name all over the world. "NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!" In a clever play of words an organizer pointed out that Red Bull was 'crashing' on Quebecers.
I post this story not because of it's banality but rather to congratulate the demonstrators on their determination to protect the French language.
