    “Parlez-vous francais?” Most of us will recognize those words. In fact, for some of us, they may be the only French we remember. Others of us will remember more from our school days, and some have studied to become fluent. Yet, while many of us may not use it in our day-to-day lives, it is an integral part of Canada as it’s one...
