Well I won the Nouvel Observateur Prize last year for AQBIA and did the speech in French in Paris, and afterwards I said, 'Never again with the French speeches!', but then something like this happens and the Quebecois are very proud and very fierce about their loyalty to French as the first language, and to do anything other than accept something so prestigious in French would have been discourteous and disrespectful, so I practiced harder this time and I was better in Montreal than I was in Paris! Never say 'Never again!'
