Think this kind of thing only happens outside of Canada? Think again. A woman was pumping gas in Montreal… she went inside the station when an employee started to yell at her. He said “we don’t want you here, we don’t serve your kind here. This is Quebec. We speak French.”
The manager of the gas station has apologized for the employee’s behaviour.
I’ve been to Quebec several times, and always been treated very well by any store I’ve visited. So this is not a slam against Canada’s Francophones. Just this one store clerk. 🙂
I would say I know enough French to get by. How about you?
