The owners of a mom-and-pop cupcake shop in Montreal were issued an order to redraw their chalkboard signs after receiving a letter from the Office Quebecois de la Langue Francaise to enlarge the French text on them.

According to CTV News, the owners of Cupcake Emmagination Bakery were frustrated by the demands of the OQLF, but will follow through with the changes because they don’t have the means to challenge them in court.

The bakery has until October 19th to change their signs.
