So in a lot of cases you'll see people like me, anglophones, just speaking french because it's easier to avoid controversy that way. There's more anglophones and more general billinguals than you think.
We met a bunch of girls from suburbs like Sherbrooke, Trois Riveres & so forth, great girls. Some spoke English pretty well with a heavy accent, totally adorable, but many barely spoke the language. Great fun loving people however, had such a great time.

Most people in Montreal we ran into we're very nice and spoke English, but seemed to prefer French. Had no problem with that & actually liked it.
