Flaunt Your Frenchness!


The cheeky 2005 award-winning campaign from the Société francophone de Maillardville is back for another round of fun!

“Flaunt your Frenchness celebrates all that is French in you! Those little words like deja-vu and your easy sense of fashion. Your unending love for cheese and wine, your “joie de vivre” and your passion for the Montreal Canadians even when the Canucks are stepping on the ice.”
