Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

There's no bilingualism on this landscape, rather a welcome sign in French only.  What does it say?  "Welcome to Québec" (i.e., Ville de Québec, or Quebec City).  After that, politics get involved:  Québec is proclaimed the national capital.  Apparently, the Québecois are a nation of their own, independent of the Canadian nation.  [2005]

  1. Québec is legally considered a nation within Canada, sort of akin to England and Scotland being "countries" within the United Kingdom. Saying national capital is something even many of us fully supporting Canadian federalism do.
