Who are Canada's two founding nations?

Great Britain and France.

---------------------------------------------

France had little or nothing to do with the Founding of the Canadian Confederation other than abandoning it's people when it lost a war to Britain. Even Britain played a minor, rubber stamp, role.

When used in this context the term "Nations" refers to groups of people, most specifically "Founding Peoples". Founding Peoples is the term used in the Constitution though Founding Nations is used elsewhere. Canada has many Nations, of which three claim special status over the others as Founding Peoples.

These three are Aboriginal, French, and British. Originally there were only two founding Nations or Peoples, the British and the French. This makes the answer to the Question: Who are Canada's two founding nations? English or British and French.

Though it should be pointed out that most of the Fathers of Confederation were not "British" any more than the French in Quebec were. Many of those most active in the creation of the Confederation were not England British. John A MacDonald born in Scotland, Thomas D'Arcy McGee (Ireland), Louis Riel (Ruperts Land), Alexander Mackenzie (Scotland), George Brown (Scotland) and many or most were born in North America, not England.

But like the French in Quebec their forefathers had lost wars to Britain and as such were "British". The dominate mother tongue of the Founding Fathers would almost certainly be Gaelic not English, though English was the common language, again thanks to domination by an English speaking superpower.

How do you pay speeding ticket in Quebec?

The Government of Quebec uses the Bureau des Infractions et Amends (BIA) to process payment of fines and contesting tickets. If you would like to challenge a speeding ticket, you normally have 30 days to respond after receipt of the ticket.

If you reside outside of Quebec, you should note that provinces and states bordering Quebec have reciprocal agreements regarding the honouring of tickets and demerit points. Therefore, demerit points will be issued on your Ontario driver's license if you receive a ticket in Quebec and vice versa.

One should always confirm that a police radar gun was used and if it wasn't they should make sure the speedometer on the police car was recently calibrated.

If you do challenge the ticket, you should also take note that costs are added to the fine if you're convicted so it may be better to assess the value of the fine versus the costs of going to court.

Finally, one of the more often made mistakes of a motorist is to pay the fine before consulting a professional.
