ROSEMÈRE, September 8, 2020 – The Town of Rosemère wishes to denounce the vulgarity and racism on the menu of the restaurant newly installed on its territory.
"The names of dishes and drinks are simply vulgar, racist and sexist. It's disrespectful and the Town doesn’t endorse such expressions. We are a town with a country flavor character made up of restaurants and shops where good taste and respect for the French language predominate. These crude puns are simply an insult to our language, to the values we instill in our children and to the openness to the world that we advocate. This menu is extremely hurtful to the Vietnamese community. In fact, last June, the Town adopted a resolution against racism and we denounce this vulgarity," said Rosemère’s Mayor Eric Westram.
