Fury as head of Air Canada REFUSES to speak in French

The head of Canada’s largest airline is facing public outrage and calls for his resignation after giving a speech in English to business leaders in Quebec. After his speech, a grovelling Michael Rousseau told reporters that despite having lived in Montreal for 14 years, he had not learned Quebec’s official language. “All I can do is mimic that funny ‘aw-ee-aw-ee’ nasal noise they do,” he said shamelessly.

Now we all know that no one in the US would bother speaking French to Canadians.

So why did you post this here?
