The nouns anglo and franco mean 'English person' and 'French person', respectively.
Language names in Esperanto are usually of the form la + adjective. You can think of these as short for la angla lingvo 'the English language' or la franca lingvo 'the French language', for example. (An exception is Esperanto, which is a noun.)
Yeah, as a bilingual Canadian, I confirm that the majority of us are not. I live in Saskatchewan, on the prairies of Western Canada, and while there is a fransaskois community, who are pretty much universally bilingual, most other Saskatchewanians speak very little French, despite theoretically learning it in school. On the other hand, I have spent some time in Quebec, and I can tell you there are many effectively monolingual French speakers, especially outside of Montreal and in older age groups.
