This is That is a radio show that does parody. The story is not true. You should hear the one they did about border guards taking sensitivity courses. Hilarious.

Yes, it's a joke.
This is That did a report on Montreal dogs having to be bilingual, and the Drudge Report ran with it.

A fictitious story about a controversial Montreal bylaw proposal requiring dogs to be comfortable in the country's two official languages has rippled through the realms of social media and fooled even some seasoned news sites.
The story, a deadpan parody crafted by CBC Radio's This is That, went viral this week after the show posted a segment on its website about the "untenable chaos" that was rife in Montreal dog parks because some animals were receiving commands in French and others in English.

No, Dogs Don't Have To Be Bilingual In Montreal
