Parlez-Vous Français? Air Canada Boss Says ‘Non’ and Gets an Earful

On a cool, wet Saturday afternoon in the outskirts of Montreal, near the city’s main airport, a crowd of about 100 gathered in front of Air Canada ’s headquarters demanding the resignation of the airline’s chief executive.

It had nothing to do with a lackluster stock performance at Canada’s largest airline. Protesters were mad that the CEO, who has lived in Montreal for roughly 14 years, can’t speak French.
