Quebec City Travel Tips & Suggestions

People in Quebec speak French, not English. Yes, Quebec is part of Canada, but not every part of Canada must be English. If you only spoke French and showed up at a Toronto hospital, you would get the same treatment.
I had a very strange experience in Quebec City. I was writing a national licensing exam which was taking place at the main hopital in the city. I arrive at the hopital and asked the receptionist at the emergency reception desk if she she could help me find the location of the exam. She just looked at me with a blank expression on her face! She could not speak a word of English -- not a single word! Other staff members appeared and they could not speak English either! It was very shocking. These people were the admitting staff in a main Canadian hospital. If I were seriously injured I would have been in real trouble.
I stayed in Quebec during September 2005 and would advise enyone heading to Quebec during summer and warmer months to book a room at least 4 days in advance in Quebec. The hostels get very full so book ahead or you will spend a few nights without a bed like I did.
Quebec City is a lovely city!!!
