    I've been to Montreal twice. The second time I took my family and they completely fell in love with it.

    I've been to Quebec City once.

    That's all I've done so far, but would love to see more. I really enjoyed it.

    If you like canoeing and camping I would recommend Parc de la Mauricie. Great place.

    Its halfway between Quebec City and Montreal.

    Ah, very cool! Thanks for the recommendation!

    I learned french in HS, but is it my imagination that the Quebecois is a bit different... or is my french just that rusty?

    Writing is the same... Oral is different.
    Kind of like someone from England and someone from Texas. Same language different expressions and accent.

    Here is a good read on the French Quebecois and how it originated.

    Celina,

    I lived in Rouyn for a few years. Born in Sudbury.
    Yes I do miss it sometimes. I loved to go camping and canoeing!


    Where do you live?

    well north bay is home (actually Field, which is between sudbury and north bay, my sister is in sturgeon falls and dad is in verner...) from there it was Sault ste marie, and in march we moved to Wasaga Beach, but there will hopefully be an IT job opening in sudbury for the same company...which we'd jump all over....
