Histoires Vrais de la Highway Patrol

Ou est le feu, buddy? N'as pas tu regarder le sign? T'as fais 90 dans le fifty zone.
On se donne un ticket--pardonnez-moi--on se donne une avertissement, don't do it again.

Winnipeg — A Winnipeg judge has thrown out traffic tickets issued to six people because they are not bilingual.

Provincial Court Judge Glenn Joyal has ruled that traffic tickets issued to Reynald Remillard and five others are invalid because only portions of the tickets were bilingual.

The judge says that violates the City of Winnipeg charter, which says people living in the Riel district of southeast Winnipeg are entitled to received services in both official languages.

Crown prosecutor Lisa Cupples says there has been no decision on whether to appeal the ruling.
