I always figured it was just some friendly joshing much like southerns vs Yankees here. Today I was on Halford's site and noticed a contest. Part of the rules were that you had to be a Canadian resident but Quebec was excluded.




Taking this regional rivalry to a whole new level. lol

Its probably a legislation thing. The laws in Quebec are different based on French law not English (the colonial powers, not the languages). So the contest is probably prohibited there maybe because it is not in French and non compliant with bill 101 in Quebec. Quebec is part of Canada and good citizens of the Queen. Remember how they won the war of 1812??

The queen should just give the whole country back to the Indians like she did when she gave Northwest Territories and turned into Nunavut.

Quebeccers bring on a lot hate towards themselves. I’m in the pipe trades. They can come and work in our jurisdictions when they have no work at home but they don’t allow others to work in Quebec. It causes a lot hate towards them on work sites .

they may not even be bad people but they all start off angry they have to speak English to you. I can't really understand why it took them like 3 minutes to say what ever it was they said in French before I asked if I could speak with Renee' in English.

I suppose they could buy french products but how would they get service , the french don't have to answer their phones after 5 or while at lunch so what are you supposed to do the other 17 hours of the day if something breaks.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I have never had any difficulty communicating with any of our Canadian neighbors. Well, I will add that conversing with the folks from Newfoundland can be a solemn occasion, but other than that I enjoy the challenge. The majority of them speak correctly, just like us folks from Wisconsin.

Seen German women with hairy legs and armpits but never a French Canadian girl.
I think that's a mainland European thing.

The best strip joints in the world are in Quebec.
At least in as much of the world as I've seen.

The few women I have met from Quebec had hairy legs too. They were fun to dance with, though some did have some BO too. In my limited experience, Canadians from the English speaking regions of Canada are more friendly and polite than the ones from Quebec. A lot of people have told me that I have a Canadian accent, so maybe English speaking Canadians like the way I sound. I learned to talk, while living in Michigan.

So some guys are upset that they went to a foreign country that speaks a different language and expected them to speak your language and are surprised they didn't get the warmest response? Lol

Ive never been to Quebec but its on my top five to go places. Some day I want to do a Habs game, travel up to Quebec city and then head north and go experience the bush.

Ask t-rex (refer to post above) where the best place to experience the bush is, it's probably right in town.

I have several sno-gos named after the French fighting spirit. I have one with two cylinders and it has twice the fighting spirit. I think parts of them were made by Bombadeer in Quebec?

If you also have one of their outboard motors it was most likely made in Racine, Wisconsin.

Well, all I know from my own experience is the Kanucks this side of Wawa we're the most polite and caring people you'd ever want to meet. North of Wawa, was a whole different ballgame. And by the time you got to Kapukasing, they we're the most rude, obnoxious, smelly little people I have ever encountered. The French, with there McDonalds menu in french and their horrible attitudes. This is in Ontario, I would never go to Quebec!

You got nothing but what you do and that is being a agitator. Like the best percentage of your post, you post to agitate with a limited knowledge of the subject matter and do not answer questions asked of you. So, have you been to Kap, have you any understanding of which I speak, or, are you just doing what you continue to do which is make post in a total oblivious state hoping someone will follow your misconceived, non educated self down your path of the, well, misconceived lol.

I asked a question about Halfords and Canadians perception of Quebecois but instead a bunch of Americans answered chiming in about how the French are rude because they didn't want to speak English.
