Quebec (or, to scum-sucking politically correct lib'ruls, "Québec") is Canada's only predominantly French-speaking province. This naturally leads to a certain degree of tension between Québec and the rest of Canada (which is predominantly English-speaking), in the form of Quebec separatism.
In spite of occasional bouts of separatist sentiment (or, more likely, because of them), Quebec has been home to a great many Canadian Prime Ministers. Also, due to official bilingualism in the Canadian government, Quebec is strongly represented in the civil service (since English Canadians are apparently too lazy to just stop whining and learn a second language).
 Quebec culture
French Canadians are known to share their culture with the Irish, as we can see in their traditional music, and in their history many Irish moved to the province. Many of them were found among the ranks of the Patriot Party during the Lower Canada Rebellion in 1837-39.
Quebec has a strong Catholic culture and pride but many new religions and cultures have arrived to the "belle province." The provincial capital, Quebec City, was founded in 1608, making it one of the oldest cities in North America.
