    I have been terrified of ending up in a hospital in Quebec. I have anaphylactic allergies, which means no time to play silly games before I'm dead. When we drive through, we fill our tank in Ontario, stop for a picnic and bathroom break, buy nothing, and get to NB as soon as possible.

    I don't think it is that rare. Quebec has (or had, I haven't been there in years) wonderful picnic areas right along the highway. Beautiful and clean. And a sign in the bathroom written only in French advising the water is not safe to drink. Not even a picture to advise non-French not to drink it.

    Unfortunately everything here is French until you get to Montreal which is a bilingual city. My Mother didn't speak a word of French, just couldn't get the hang of the language and she was in and out of hospitals a lot as she got older and never had a problem. Yet I have seen things that do make me cringe. Salesladys in stores nasty to English speaking customers, But these people are ignorant seperatists. Most folks here are very warm.

    I don't mean to paint an entire population as nasty. My son loves going to the city of Quebec. He loves everything about it. I, on the other hand, have had one to many negative experiences in the province.

    If we didn't need passports for everyone we would have crossed into the states and went east that way.

    Wow, I am sorry you've had so much trouble here. I was just trying to explain what most of the people are like.
