Quebec is amending its language laws to require retailers to add a French description to go with their commercial trademark English names. Culture Minister Helene David (dah-VID') says the amendments will be introduced this fall and hopefully be in place by 2016. She says only about 20 per cent of Quebec enterprises have their trademarks uniquely in English, adding most of them are already in French. (In April, Quebec's Court of Appeal upheld a lower court decision and ruled the province's language watchdog could not force companies such as Best Buy, Old Navy and Costco to add a French component to their name. Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee says that decision won't be appealed.)
