    Didn't look very hard, hu?

    I figured NASCAR is big so I entered www.nascar.com in my browser and INCREDIBLE!! The NASCAR home page popped-up!. Top right, I see a search window. I enter "Montreal" and wow! It's UNBELIVABLE!! I get a search result with bunch of hits on "Montreal" I click the first one and OH MY GOD!! Here's what I get: http://www.nascar.com/2006/news/head...eal/index.html

    Like i said, didn't look that hard... Took me longer to type this than to find your answer...

    Why do you have to be such a smart ass? Your type are the only thing wrong with Montreal. I also went to Nascar.com but I searched on Canada and did not get the same results. You probably treat tourists the same way, if they don't speak french you look down upon them and don't help them with a question about Montreal.

    During my unsucceful search I did come across this info though......The Canadian flag flies proudly at Michigan Speedway and the Canadian anthem always gets a rousing cheer.

    Why was I a smart ass in my reply? Simply because I hate when peoples act like they are lazy or plain stupid. Did you say you already searched NASCAR site? No you didn't! Canada is big so, doing a search on Canada was likely not to find anything good. Same as doing a search on "universe" or "earth" while on NASCAR, not much will likely pop up, even if Montreal is part of the universe and on planet earth. When doing a query, you need to be specific. Did you want to see NASCAR anywhere in Canada or in Montreal? You said Montreal so, why not search "Montreal"? Strange thing is somebody else found almost the same info as I did, isn't it? Isn't that showing a little lack of perseverence on your side?

    And I don't treat tourist like that, no matter if they speak french, english or russian. I don't look down on peoples who don't speak my language, I leave that to you. Generalizing and deducting something on language, when the original subject wasn't even remotely close to language, when you're the first to bring the language issue on topic only to bash somebody else, it only show your lack of class and judgment, and shows how much you like to bash French-speaking peoples without knowing anything about them. It's the equivalent of a kid's discussion where one say "my dad is stronger than yours" when out of arguments: totally irrelevent, pointless and useless. It's blabbing without reason about something you know nothing about.

    So, next time you need info, I'll just find it and then nag you. I won't give it to you like I did this time.

    I forgot! You'll find "my type" not only in Montreal but, anywhere where "your type" is present.!

    I have been to Montreal many times and have experienced exactly what I said in my post. Also, when visiting France it is not uncommon for the french to be rude to Americans. Do you live in a bubble?

    French are rude to Americans, same as Quebecois are rude to Americans for the same reason: Some Americans are arrogant and act as everybody must speak English, demand to be served in English, and look offensed or disdain when not served that way. They act as everybody owes them everything. Why do you think American are the most hated peoples on the planet? You could probably be the poster boy to explain why.

    I'm not saying all Amercican are like that, far from it. Talking to some American friends I have, I can say the ones who have the "I'm American and better than you" look and attitude are the ones who have problems when visiting Montreal. Others American I know, who are polite and even try to learn some French words, have no problems and actually rate Quebecois' hospitality among the highest and most enjoyable in the world. Maybe a look in the mirror would be beneficial to how well you're treated in Montreal?

    And jealousy in their eyes? Jealous of what?? Of your "i'm the best and you're shit" attitude? Are you certain what you see isn't pity?
    That's exactly why you have some cold welcome when coming here! You look down on peoples and they feel it. For you to think they are jealous, you must think you have something they dont: you think you're superior to them! That's the problem! Until you loose this attitude, don't expect to have nothing but cold attitude back. Or better, stay south.
