Why I Love Québec Culture

There are actually many reasons why I love Québec culture (including the music, which is an amazing mixture of French Troubadour and Irish Trad), however this photo highlights one aspect of Québecois culture that I really appreciate:

'Elvis' Fire Hydrant and Riot Squad

This photo was taken by David Champagne, and is on his blog here.

Here’s a video of the events leading up to that photo:

What this image reminds me of is the sense of humour and joie de vivre that permeates Québec culture. While there was chaos and violence (on the part of protesters and police) there was someone willing to poke fun at it all and have a laugh. All in a completely non-violent, non-provocative way. This is why I love living here.
