comment Quebec, responding to French in English: faux pas?
Quebec is not officially bilingual. Only New Brunswick is. The other provinces haven't chose to adopt one or two languages officially.

comment How useful/important is French in Montreal?
Really good answer, especially the:"as long as they can see you making an effort". Every place I go I try to learn few words and peoples are always more friendly. Especially in Quebec, where many feel like their language/culture is threatened.

You should learn (or at least try), if you plan to stay that long. True you will be able to live and work in english, but do not forget there is only one official language in Quebec which is french. Also, technically, every business are supposed to first offer services in french. It is often avoided, but you will find native french speaker more friendly if you throw a Bonjour from time to time.

comment Montreal - Atlanta travel
It might not be polite, but it is still true. The fact that you want it to meant USA does not make it anymore right. Am I not an American as a French is an European? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americas

Montreal IS in America, as the whole Canada. You probably meant "is not in USA".

comment How to travel from Montreal to Quebec City without a car?
I also think the scenery from train is better (I won't lie, the road on the highway 20 is boring).

comment The first time in Canada: Montreal, Toronto or Ottawa?
Exactly what I would have suggested, althrough I never went to Vancouver. My favorite city is however Quebec City (but there is less to do than MTL or Toronto). Also, in my opinion, to really see Canada you have to see countryside (I have few place in mind, badlands in Alberta, Nova Scotia, Gaspésie, etc.).

comment Is the London Pass worth the price?
Hard to tell, how can I know how much activities I have time to do? How can I calculate the price of the public transportation (which is included in a ticket of slightly higher price)?
