Montreal TD Bank ATM Machine Allegedly Has No "English" Option

The city of Montreal is usually pretty quick about correcting language issues but it appears as though one has been overlooked. According to The Unity Group's Facebook page, a TD Bank ATM machine in the Eaton Center has no English option.

I mean sure, they have French , they have Italian and they even have Portuguese. But English? Nope.

And I mean come one, the bank is called Toronto Dominion, how the hell could they omit the English section?

Not sure if this was a  glitch or just a gross lack of oversight but either way, as a bilingual Montrealer I'd still be pissed off if I came across this ATM machine.

Get your shit together TD.
