I love Quebec, but when it comes to politics, I hang my head. For example, you cannot even put up a poster in english. The stop signs say "arret", french for stop. In France, they say "stop".

I can only imagine what the politics would be like in a school board...

Why does it surprise so many people that road signs are not in english in non-english speaking parts of the globe? Although "Stop" is pretty well understood the world over, I don't see how it can be construed as shameful to use the appropriate locale.
