I can't believe this. We're really going to have to do something about BC.

I think of the natural beauty, the friendly people, the history and above all I see Quebec as an integral part of Canada that is very proud to be such.
Aaaah; a thoughtful reasoned post. Kudos.

Everybody can be clueless.

Recently, while passing through Regina, Saskatchewan, I found (to my disappointment), that somebody at the Petro-Can where I filled up, had put decaf in the regular carafe. Blech! I finally got some real coffee in Brandon, Manitoba.

I'd suggest that cluelessness as to coffee can extend to all provinces.

But here's a nice story!!
Leaving Quebec real early in the am we stopped for some breakfast and I needed some coffee bad. Little did I realize that I hardly had any Canadian 'dough'. I said 'Mademoiselle I'm broke! I can only give you this' and I think gave her 2 dollars in change. She said hold on to get our orders. Then she gave it to us. 'Rang up' the order, took my money' and zingo didn't even ask me to pay it with my American money. All I said was merci a coupla times. Nice mademoiselle there. See? I love Quebecers..;-)....
