Bilingual has been a worldwide trend for decades, I mean there are always English subtitles, no matter in Korea, Kenya, Brazil, or Holland, but not the case for Québec City.

The historic signage is bilingual because those properties are federally controlled. If they were provincially controlled they would likely be in French only.

I just realized that it has been about 24 years since I was in Québec City.

Back the old days I pronounced it as "Kwuh-Beck", until a local corrected me and called it "K-Beck".

Great stuff, mate!

Nice pictures!

It's good to see the pavilion underneath Parliament done.

Where is that house in #2?

Yup! It was officially inaugurated today by Québec's premier.

I don't know what exactly is this house, but it was surprisingly small compared to regular homes. It is situated here (Under the trees)

j'imagine qu'une ville de 285 000 habitants ne peut se comparer avec une qui va taper le million d'habitants d'ici la fête du Canada.
