Haha, in Canada for a school trip I spent a good 15 minutes getting up the nerve to order something in a mall in french, and when I did, I got a "Would you like ketchup with that?" in English.

The majority of people in Canada speak English, even if they are fluent in French. However most people know a basis of both languages so there really is no need to worry about something as simple as ordering.
