    In contrast to what you’ve said, Quebec did not force French onto the rest of the country, Quebec vito’d it’s way out of a movement started in Ottawa by Ontario’s large Franco-Ontarien population, which have little to no relation to Quebec, the movement started with the roughly 1.2 million French speakers in Ontario alone, intending to be provincial, and ended up being nation. Don’t hate on Quebec for something that they had little to do with, as for tourism, it’s not that bad, it’s not like French is overly hard to guess at things about, and signs are comprehensible by numbers and logos alone 99% of the time.

    Re “Visit Quebec City”, I do agree that the city, area, province is beautiful, however, from extensive experience of traveling thru’ the province of Quebec, I’ve come to the conclusion that I strongly have to advocate to anyone that Quebec is definitely NOT a tourist friendly place to visit. Quebec ‘forced’ all of Canada to be bi-lingual many years ago, however they themselves only believe in being unilingual, officially. As you approach the province from Ontario, the #401 highway ‘must’ have bilingual signage along the highway, but cross the border in to Quebec, and it’s 100% French. The orange, solar-powered construction warning/advice signs are totally French, so you have no concept of what lies ahead – – if you don’t speak French. Large overhead typical green signage is 100% French. As a tourist, you will be 100% lost, at most turns of the road. We also have found that vast number of drivers are usually quite arrogant, belligerent, and overly aggressive. Even in the large urban areas, many restaurant workers are bilingual, but arrogantly try to speak only in French to you, the tourist.
    Sorry, but I say, hey spend your time enjoying Ontario, or New Hampshire/Vermont, which have identical type of topography/scenery, etc.
