To be totally honest with you guys, I love Montreal, and I love Quebec, and I love Canada. My city, province, and country are all huge points of pride for me.
Which is why, when I stumbled upon these two AskReddit threads, one by /u/Tovinx asking how people around the world perceive Montreal, and one by /u/evoraz asking Reddit what they knew about Quebec, I was instantly interested.
And, guess what? Montreal and Quebec are both known for being seriously awesome... but no surprise there, TBH.

"That is where all the "Just for Laughs - Gags" is shot.
People seem super fucking nice and downright LOVABLE!!! I want to visit Quebec simply because of how SWEET those people look in that show!"
"I know basically nothing about it. My perception isn't even properly formed really. It's Canada. Cold. French-ish. Poutine? Hockey. It's on the East side of the Country."

"I live in Vermont and think you guys drive like shit. Other than that you guys are legit. Oh, you don't tip enough if any at all."
