I am a Canadian speaking one of the 2 official languages of Canada. My mother tongue is French. The Quebec province is a French province. The French Canadian are completely different from the French of France. The best comparison would be the Americans and the British : both are speaking English but...that's all. Your mentality and the British mentality are very very different. So the French Canadian and the French from France. In fact we are americans...speaking french. Simple as that.
We both live in North America and we are on the same wavelenght.
