Controversial sign posted in STM ticket booth
This sign was posted at the Villa Maria metro station asking customers to speak French only.
The STM says it will meet with some of its employees to discuss a controversial sign posted inside the ticket booth at the Villa Maria metro station Wednesday.
Written in French only, it reads: "In Quebec, we operate in French."
STM board member Marvin Rotrand said a number of users alerted them to the sign, and that no one is allowed to post signs on ticket booths.
“The sign puzzled quite a few people,” he said. “We will meet with the employees. We don't know who actually put it there. We're not making any presumptions but the rules are very, very clear: No signs allowed.”
The sign was removed Thursday morning, but by several accounts had been put back in place Thursday evening.
