Quebec's official language is French. The rest of Canada is bilingual French/English, officially. Although I'm sure that the soldiers in the Quebec detachments of the Canadian military can speak English (it's a rare sight to find one that doesn't), French is probably their PREFERRED operating language, if only because they're a bunch of pretentious wankers.
The movie's a fake, I think. Besides obviously clipping prior to firing, several weeds are out of sync with the timeframe, and some disappear altogether after the clip.
Also, it's steaming. Unless the exhaust system misfired along with the primary engine, there shouldn't be anything like that, and if the exhaust system DID fail, the missile would have blown up immediately.

I will try to take it not to personnal. :P
After the (first) war, the 22nd Battalion was disbanded on May 20, 1919, sharing the fate of the other numbered battalions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. However, in the post-war reorganizations of the army, public pressure, such as resolutions by the Legislative Assembly of Quebec as well as the City Council of Quebec City, demanded that a permanent French-language unit be created in the peace-time Regular Force, and accordingly a new regiment was created, made up of veterans of the 22nd Battalion, on April 1, 1920. Initially the regiment, which was given the guard of the Citadelle of Quebec, was simply the 22nd Regiment, but in June 1921 King George V approved renaming it The Royal 22nd Regiment. In 1928 the anomaly of a French-language unit with an English name was resolved, and the regiment became the Royal 22e Régiment.
The Royal 22nd is a french-canadian regiment.
