Quebec has maintained a balance of rekindling the old world of Europe and the new world of modern North America. Old Quebec is filled with quaint cafe's and coffee shops which fulfills the old European style. The modern North American flavor is more of a busy high rise buildings and city feel with less intimacy than that of the European feel.
As most countries around the world do, Quebec uses the Metric system. This system applies to temperature, meaning they use Celsius (degree's centigrade) rather than Degree's to measure the temperature of something. This means that the freezing point of water is 0 degree's centigrade rather than the 32 degree's north american is used too.
