    Wait until their first winter. They’ll be back in Provence before you can say “Snowplough”.

    They did not find out that Quebec is as socialist as France? Plus: cold winter, no good food and no nice palaces.

      No good food? Tabenouche!

      Yes, the Quebec government tends to be socialist and statist, the degree depending on the political party, but so far the tax burden remains small compared to France. I agree about the lack of palaces, but I disagree about the lack of good food. You can eat food (cuisine) every bit as good as any where in France if you go to the right places. The weather is the weather and no it certainly is not Provence.

        And a lot less burkas.

        The frozen food in French supermarkets is better than anything you find in the average Canadian/Quebec restaurant.
