Nobody is talking about Rivet and Souray because they can speak the above quite good.
What if they had a captain who couldn't speak English in Toronto?
Phil you're playing this card more and more and it makes you look small. Calling someone a bigot is an ugly thing. Much worse than someone being shy about being interviewed in a 3rd language.
When you 'know' the ammount of language the man speaks, when you 'know' what some others speak, talk. Until then get the hell off your soap box.
Admit it, you have no clue about how well any of them speak French do you ?
I think you understand this less than most actually, you're just seizing a dramatic moment.
