As far as my rant yesterday, I just wanted to say that you can still get served in English in restaurants here in Quebec, for the most part, and the Tourist Bureau are very friendly, kind and helpful and will gladly speak in English to anyone. I know this because even though I am fluent in French I have no problems getting served in English. Sometimes I speak in French, sometimes I speak in English, and I feel that this is my right to speak in either language, so I do. However, I am speaking as an individual and as a customer, though, not as someone who works with the public...if I were working at a store I would speak in French to the French customers and in English to the English clientele, out of respect for each person, which I feel is the right, polite and kind thing to do. Yes, you will have a few here and there who will only speak in French (some out of fear of being reported to the "language police", also known as the Office Quebecoise de la Langue Francaise", others who may be separatists), however, and thankfully, these are in the minority, which is why Quebec has not become a country yet...and hopefully won't, as even though I am proud and happy to live in Montreal, Quebec, I am also a happy and proud Canadian. :)
