I asked her to describe how did he drive. It happened that her buddy always kept on the left lane.
I had to do some defense of those rude Quebec drivers.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, has scared me so much as Quebecois in Chevy pickups doing well over the Summer speed limit on snow packed roads in January. It appears that the entire population of Quebec has no knowledge of the laws of physics as they pertain to grip/velocity ratios. As I putt along at what I consider a very reasonable 45 I'll suddenly find a salt white Silverado, pulling a trailer loaded with 4 Bombardier sleds, blowing past and giving me a look that can only be interpreted as "damned foreigners!" The only thing I can say in my favor is that they'll give the same look to visitors from Toronto. Year round.
