For Montreal fans

I am wondering what % of Hab fans speak French.

This poll is a primer for a 2nd poll for the English speaking Hab fans. I want to see if there is enough English Hab fans to make it worth while.

Think most Montreal fans from this province know enough French to speak it.

Judging by your 2nd line I'm not sure if you're asking French first or if we speak French in general.

I've been living in Montreal since 1999, but I don't speak French. I can understand basic French simply from hearing it over and over. I speak 4 other languages fluently, English being my third, but I just never had time/dedication to enroll in French classes.

Where's the option "I went to an Ontario French Immersion School growing up but don't practice it enough to be fluent anymore"??

I cannot understand how someone doesn't speak the local language after 15 years. I guess it depends where you live in Montreal.

You're right. That and my job. I work in IT for a British company and French is never spoken at our offices.

Okay to make it worth while to you, I think that every non-francophone speakers on this board should still answer yes.

ahh yes good point I guess if one sees them self as a French 1st person.

I live in an area of Ontario that is almost 50/50 French/English and we all live completely integrated lives aside from Leaf-Hab jabs lol. However it isn't at all where all my French friends are Hab fans and all my English ones are Leaf fans. French Leaf fans are rare but I do have English Hab fan friends. I know it is astounding that I actually have friends but thats a poll for an other day

yea that would work or I could just continue the discussion in here because the Francophone opinion is of value as well.

It is in regards to the French 1st image of the Habs and if English Hab fans feel less important.

Why is there an issue with french canadians being habs fan regarding english speakers? What does a french 1st image of the habs mean?

Why do you have friends?
