Yes, they all speak french, english + their "native language", yes.
Honestly, 3 times out 4, "ROC people" that I have met and moved here were always surprised to see "non-white" Montrealers speaker french, english, AND their "native" language.
On the flip side, a colleague of mine recently came back from Vancouver and told me it was "just japanese people". For the record, I was forced to refrain from slapping him good.
