I hear this on my phone all the time. I went to google translate and its obvious that they are not saying what google translate says. Can anyone who can listen to french well type out what the person said?

You and I both live in Canada, the nation required to translate every commercial product into both French and English by law. If you can't speak French, then just assume if it has an English phrase next to it, they're exact translations of one another.

Of course I know that the meaning is the same. I'm just curious about the exact wording.
