I find it appalling that, this being a bilingual country, Quebecers have to resort to private companies to teach them basic stuff that like.
That, as I understand it, is a one-way street:   all of the rest of Canada requires bilingual government employees - Quebec bans English on public signs and stores, including imposing fines.   The basic animosity has been the flunk-o-phones against everyone else - because they like it that way.

The US should look at your example (and also Belgium, and even Switzerland) and stop this rolling towards bi-lingual English/Spanish. It divides people. Speak as many languages as you want - as many as you can - but do put maximum effort to speak the common speech of the a newly adopted homeland.

As for Quebec - it a fitting punishment for Canada's "we're so nice" arrogance.
