Bonjour les Québecois!
I know I have many visitors from Canada, including, of course, the Province of Quebec. This morning I thought of them when, near the embankment, I came across this statue of Jacques Cartier, a Breton (from Saint Malo), who landed in Quebec July 24, 1534. Since then, people there speak French... Even if, it's a little bit like British English and American English; the accent, the phrases and some words are slightly - and sometimes totally! - different.
