In Canada we'll likely see French supported. John's in Virginia, so possibly he's going based on something an American rep told him.

I thought everything in Canada had to be bilingual. Except Quebec somehow gets to use only French.
while there exist (somewhat controversial) language laws to sustain Québecois culture and certainly maintain French as the dominant language here, i can assure you, particularly in Montréal, that French is not the only communicative language and that English-based tech products do not need to be exclusively marketed or packaged in French, but they must be marketed and packaged in French to be sold here.
of interest, the inverse is not required.
