Stephane and Beatrice Facon have a message for the person or people responsible for spray-painting the windows and walls of their downtown Kelowna business overnight Tuesday.

“We all know the reputation of the French lovers,” the owners of Bouchons Bistro wrote in an e-mail to the media. “We do encourage to love as much as we do but would appreciate it if you don’t share your love for each other on our walls.

“As business owners we were shocked to find some graffiti on our restaurant walls this morning. We believe in love as well as respecting private property.”

Stephane said they were able to clean a white heart off the window, but getting the initials M+M+T+Z off the window ledge and stone walls is not as easy. He plans to call the landlord to see what the options are, but it’s going to cost someone money and he doesn’t want to see it happen again.

“It’s a French bistro, OK,” Stephane said in his thick French accent, “but if they want to do it they can go to Paris.”
