Just some trivia about Quebec

In Quebec, margarine is white, not yellow. This is because the government wants to protect its citizens from being tricked into thinking margarine is butter.

[Update] In June 2008, Quebec finally agreed to allow yellow margarine onto store shelves.

You can't make a right turn at a red light on the island of Montreal (they think it's too dangerous). This used to be the case all over Quebec, but in the last few years, the right turn was allowed after a pilot study in 2003 showed that there were no significant adverse effects of the manoeuvre.
