Quebec

quebec_landscape.jpg The second largest province in Canada is the province of Quebec, a province that is as much a part of Canada as it is apart from Canada. Bordered on its west by Ontario, east by Labrador (Newfoundland), its narrow strip north of the St. Lawrence River by the states of Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont and the province of New Brunswick, the biggest portion of Quebec is undeveloped and unaccessible. However, where settlements do exist and access is possible, few can deny, that nothing compares to the beauty and wonder of Quebec's sparsely settled land, let alone to the atmosphere of the solid, warm-hearted people living in these out of the way communities.

Rightly nick-named La Belle Province (The Beautiful Province) Quebec is divided into three regions, the Canadian Shield, the St. Lawrence Lowlands and the Appalachian Region. Most of the population lives in the center region: the St. Lawrence Lowlands, as the northern Canadian Shield region is much too cold to sustain farming or livestock and the Appalachian is too rugged and wild.

The people of Quebec have made headlines, since many of them want to separate from the rest of Canada. These wishes came to the attention of Canadians west of the province during Expo 67. Since then, several elections have taken place, but so far, the majority of Quebeckers have voted to stay under Canada's federal umbrella, although at times, just barely. Government issues aside, the Province of Quebec has to be one of the most charming destinations in the world.

Besides the astounding four season scenery, the kind you'll find in the Laurentian and the Saguenay, Lac-Saint-Jean and Charlevoix regions, two cities attract visitors from across the globe: Vibrant Montreal, the second most populated city in Canada, and Quebec City, the oldest city in Canada and the only walled city in North America, a fortress since the 1600's.

It's obvious at once, to any one who visits Quebec, the first language of this province is French. And it has been that way ever since Jacques Cartier claimed this territory in the name of the king of France nearly five centuries ago.

Naturally, the climate is as diverse as Quebec's geography, with winter temperatures from cold to colder to coldest and summers cool to warm to hot and humid.
