How were you treated in Quebec?

Jump to last reply

When we were planning a trip to Quebec, a guy at work who was from western Canada told us that people in Quebec would be rude to us because we didn't speak French. We did not find that to be the case at all. However, during the trip we spoke to another Canadian guy who said that folks were rude to his family because they didn't speak French. I concluded at the time that if the folks in Quebec know you are American, they don't expect you to speak French, but if they know you are Canadian, they get irritated if you don't speak French.

Fast forward to this year. We were in Maine in line at a store behind an American couple who told the sales clerk that they had just been to Quebec and that the "French people there were disgusting." They didn't elaborate on any particular experience, other than to say they were the rudest people they've ever seen.

I don't quite know what would have to happen to me to brand an entire province of people "disgusting." How were YOU treated in Quebic?
