Mrs. Mills does Canadians

Mrs. Mills, in her usual witty style, deals with a small language problem... from some Canadians.
My wife and I have dual nationality, but we are from Quebec. The British ask us, “Why do you speak French, if you are Canadian?” Any suggestions as to a reply?
And how does Mrs. Mills deal with this cultural problem?
I should have thought it was obvious why you speak French: there’s less chance of being thought Canadian and you might even be mistaken for an interesting person.
Well... that's a bit off-putting, isn't it? Doesn't Mrs. Mills know that Canada is now on the world stage? I mean, Canada has Le Grande Chien Chaud for a prime minister.
