FRENCH WORD OF THE DAY: Fin de non-recevoir

Fin de non-recevoir: A strong, definitive refusal or rejection.

As seen in: « Malgré les vives critiques des partis d’opposition et une fin de non-recevoir du gouvernement de Jean Charest, le controversé projet de loi C-10 de lutte contre la criminalité a franchi toutes les étapes à la Chambre des communes. »

(Translation: “Despite strong criticism from the opposition parties and a definitive rejection from Jean Charest’s (Quebec) government, the controversial anti-criminality Bill C-10 has completed all its steps in the House of Commons.”)
