Rapaire - Reverse the situation. What if someone from Quebec, visiting the U.S. asked for a tire pressure gauge in French? The gas station attendant might reply,
"I...am...sorry...I...just...arrived...from...England...and...don't...know...any...French".

The point is that Quebec is a French speaking Province and thats why Canada is bi-lingual. If you can't speak French, you might find making your way around a bit more difficult. I don't think you can judge the people of Quebec by the comment of a gas station attendant. As far as I know, your voice might have sounded demanding to him.
