Canadian Supreme Court to hear case of couple who sued Air Canada for not being able to order a 7Up in French
The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear the appeal of a couple who sued Air Canada when they weren’t able to order a 7Up in French.
Michel and Lynda Thibodeau filed eight complaints with the official languages commissioner over the English-only services they say they received from Air Canada during trips taken between January and May, 2009.
The Federal Court awarded the couple $12,000 in compensation for the times Air Canada did not serve them in French. Air Canada was also ordered to apologize to the Thibodeaus.
