Interview with Chez Geeks' co-owner Giancarlo Caltabiano, target of OQLF

Recently, Chez Geeks, a FLGS in Québec, was targeted by the L'office du Quebec de la Langue Francaise (Québec Board of the French Language). Put simply, this board's goal is to keep Québec's French heritage alive. They claim Chez Geek is violating several of their laws that were put into place in 1977 to do just that. Where video games have received special disposition to other goods, board games have not, leaving Chez Geek and its owners in a difficult position. TGN's Jared Miller had a chance to speak with one of the co-owners, Giancarlo Caltabiano, about the problems the store and Québec face.
