You want me to say Quebec is, but you'd have to time travel back to the 17th and early 18th centuries for that; it's British, Irish and Italian these days.

Louisianna has many Cajuns (formerly Acadians whom the British deported when they infiltrated Quebec/New France in the French And Indian War) and French speakers. New Orleans, founded by the French in 1718, has the French Quarter and Mardi Gras.

Quebec is waaay more French today than anywhere in Louisiana. It's not even close. Have you been to Montreal or Quebec City?

There are 6+ million daily Francophones in Quebec vs maybe 100k in Louisiana that occasionally speak Cajun French.

Your characterization of the Canadian Province of Quebec is so far off from reality that it's almost laughable.

Yes, Montreal is super diverse via having many ethnicities well represented in it's large metro population but it's largely an outlier as goes that degree of diversification in Quebec Province. Nevertheless, it's Canadian take on French culture and it's millions of speakers of the French language far outshines what Louisiana can bring to the table in terms of similar factors.

In addition, Quebec City, the 2nd city of the province, is even more Francophone than is Montreal. It's the largest city in North America I've ever been to wherein I could easily have been fooled into thinking I was actually in a European city!

Native Anglophones make up 1.5% of the population of QC and its metro.

NYC has around 60k French folks, with Nolita in Manhattan having a large concentration of French influenced businesses.

https://france-amerique.com/the-fren...n%20the%20city.

The French cultural impact can be felt in many areas in the city and its boroughs, too.

In my neighborhoods of Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill/Carroll Gardens, there are a minimum of 14 (maybe more I'm missing) french restaurants and bars.

I commented earlier on both Montreal & Quebec City and just for the fun of sharing my memories of what a fun & beautiful place Quebec City is, below here I'm including a page of response photos from my search for 'Quebec City Old Town'.

It's really a stunning place to visit especially when considering that there is far more to it than just it's "Old Town".
