Canadian censor board says "fuck" OK for French speakers, but not English speakers

French-language broadcasters in Canada have been given the all-clear signal to freely use the word "fuck" on radio and television. The Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council (CBSC), which decides which words are safe and which ones will cause grievous damage to the nervous systems of people who hear them uttered, declared "fuck" to be "part of the common French spoken language" and that it doesn't have "the same vulgar connotations when used in French."

For now, English speakers in Canada will remain under the care and protection of the CBSC when it comes to the forbidden word.
