MONTREAL—After 24 hours at the centre of a language dispute, an IGA franchise in St-Lambert has suspended one of the managers who "mishandled" the situation by forbidding employees to speak English on the store's premises.

CTV Montreal exclusively reported Wednesday that a South Shore teenager working at the IGA on Sir-Wilfrid-Laurier Blvd. was told she did not have the right to speak English at the store.

On Thursday, store owner Louise Menard said in a statement that there had been a communication breakdown, which would be immediately addressed. The manager has been suspended indefinitely.

"After listening to the entire audio recording (…) Louise Menard, the owner of IGA Marche Menard, has decided to suspend the manager who mishandled the situation," the store said in a statement.
