Driving in Canada?
Since I know there are a number of Canadians on this board, any tips on driving in Canada, especially Quebec? I am going to be in Montreal in a couple of weeks and just rented a car to take a day trip to Quebec City and Montmorency Falls. Rented a "Toyota Corolla or similar" from a downtown Enterprise close to my hotel. I'll be there with two of my buddies. I may be American, but dangit I prefer metric, so not worried about things like distance/speed and I've driven in France before, although I believe Canada uses US style road signs, just in French in Quebec.
Interestingly enough two of us own 2005 Mazda 3 (I have a S and the other guy has an SP23 that still looks brand new). We almost drove, but considering that all three of us own 2005 model cars and I am the only one with a second car, we probably wouldn't have taken a 3 on a nearly 2000 mile road trip and would have gone with my much newer Escape. Airfare was cheap enough even with ski equipment that we decided to get a little extra time at the destinations.
