    Ive been to Mt. Tremblant a ski resort in Quebec like at least 6 times. Also last winter I went to Montreal to go to some casino and then a few weeks later went to some resort in Quebec City. But everytime Im there I always get the feeling that you all hate Americans. Maybe cause most of the places I go are resorts where alot of Americans goes to and they get sick of us. More than once we would be around people, and they would be talking in French and you can just tell their talking bad about us. At the resort while snowboarding they can always tell my friends and I are American, and they are all friendly with the Canadian person in front of us but when they get to us they seem like jerks. But all you Canadians on here seem like the nicest people ever. Maybe its just the French speaking ones that dont like us. Ohh yeah, also you all hate ketchup, every place I always have to ask for it.

    Hey Man,

    I am from Montreal, lived there for many years, but now live in the States. Just to give you a hard time, do you speak French? because I would be curious to know how you "you can just tell their talking bad about us."...


    Serioulsy though, you can often tell who is American when riding the subway because of a few things. First, when you speak English, your mouth moves a lot more than when you speak French, so even with headphones on, you can identify the English speakers and in Quebec, most people speak French so your already narrowing it down. Then of course there is that fact that as a general rule (just my observations from riding the metro all the time) Americans speak much louder than Canadians, I have no idea why...Finally, although Canada and the US are neighbors and are similar in so many ways, the truth is that there are a few subtle differences (personla space in public, eye contact, etc...), and the provenece of Quebec is different.

    The good news, most Canadiens aren't too confrontational (unless you are talking about Hockey, Putine, or beer), so the next time you are in Quebec and you know they are talking about you, kick their ass, that's what I would do...especially now that I live in the States...

    Yeah your right, but one time riding up in a lift a old couple said something pretty mean to us. Yeah I know I stick out like sore thumb up there. You guys got some real good strip clubs up there tho.

    Most French Canadians don't even like the rest of us Canadians...the language difference seems to polarize them from the rest of the country. In fairness the rest of don't care much for Quebec either.

    I'm sure there are Canadians that don't like Americans, which IMO is small minded herd mentality. When I hear someone slagging Americans I usually comment that they must not know any Americans because if they did they'd realize exactly how stupid they sound. There is some anti-american slant to a lot of media here, but we all know how idiotic it is to let the media form your opinions for you.

    So, f*ck Quebec, come skiing here in BC...:D

    It is afunny thing about hte language deal in Canada. In addition to having little gangs of white dudes, and black dudes, etc...which you do have of course, you also have little gangs of English dues of all races an French dudes of all races, almos tlike language gangs...Quebec is a weird place, but arguably the most European city in North America, there are a lot of cool things...Quebec City is very historic, Montral is a fun town...as soon as you go north there is a lot of sledding adn nature...kind of like the the koke outside of the murder capital of BC.

    Coming from GA you are WAY faster to burn up i95 to i81 and cross @ 1000 islands bridge.


    saves you the 8 hours or so from windsor to that bridge on the 401.

    as for the french disliking americans, the french hate anyone who isn't french and from quebec. dont take it personally ... their dicks.

    The rest of canada doesn't hate americans, sure we might poke some fun from time to time because you guys know SO little about canada, compared to what we know about you, but there is no hate there. End of the day, the jokes go back and forth, but you guys are friends and allies. (even if we don't agree on who you are going to invade this month :D)

    So true, the quebecois have a hate on for english folks. It goes both ways though. I don't know one person I've ever met that said ........man those french quebecers are such nice friendly people. I had 2 neighbours at the same time, frogs moved to Calgary. would not speak a lick of english unless they absolutely had to. they were the most arrogant ****ing asshole cock suckers I've ever had the displeasure of meeting.

    Soooooo when France ............. the ACTUAL french people will not give quebec the time of day you know there's a problem.

    If you need to ski........you NEED the Canadian Rockies, not some lump of **** in quebec.
