Quebec is the most sophisticated because it has a cuisine of its own, a regionalized language of its own and a culture of its own, if you dont count Quebec as Canada, you'll find that English speaking Canada, New zealand, australia, the US are the exact same thing

-anglophile
-puritanical
-big cars
-big peoples
-suburbias
-Shopping malls
-culture is mostly based on simple things like watching sports on tv
-homogeneity

etc. etc. etc.

look at a picture of jacksonville florida, and a picture of brisbane australia and you can hardly tell them apart

look at a picture of calgary canada and a picture of dallas and its like the same city

look at a picture of auckland NZ and a picture of portland oregon and is the same look

you could perfectly form a country with US, canada, australia and NZ (take away quebec of course) and you have a gigantic nation that is disturbingly similar!

Mmm.. a lot of Canadians have a certain reserved, "polite", "stiff upper lip" demeanour that seems very British to us Aussies. Here's one thing you're never going to see in Australia... https://www.google.com.au/search?q=P...=2559&bih=1252

Having friends and relatives in Quebec and having visited Quebec, I'm getting the impression that you actually haven't been.
Quebec is no more " sophisticated " than Ontario. Montreal may have a different flair, which I love, but I wouldn't say it's more sophisticated than Toronto.

Venture outside of Montreal and you will find just as many unsophisticated people as you would anywhere.
Your list is very prejudicial towards anglo's.

I hate to break your image of Quebec but Quebec is filled with big cars, big people, suburbs, shopping malls ( heck Montreal's underground city is one big shopping mall ), TV sports loving smokers.

I could take any city in the world and find another that has a similar look. Your methodology is faulty.
