< CamMacLeod adds: I agree: ''Pourquoi?'' (why?) If the information is urgent, or for wide dispersal, then English would likely be chosen for use. But there's no need to have everyone use English all the time. Think of it like a family whose first language is French: should they always speak English, just in case someone who speaks English is nearby? One thing that some people might enjoy is providing translations when they find French content, but instead of requiring English, why not learn a little French?

Since English and French are the only two official languages in Canada, and Halifax is a part of Canada, and the majority of Haligonians speak English, perhaps it would be best for the people writing to the big gay Halifax wiki to use English in their postings.

Pourquoi?

I agree with Cam on this issue. Sounds like someone went a bit overboard with the language criteria.
