Major Cities of Québec



Montréal
Population: 1,704,694

Montréal is Québec's most populous city and is the most important centre of commerce, aerospace, transport, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, education, art, culture, tourism, food, fashion, video game development, film, and world affairs. Founded in 1642, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. Montréal hosts multiple international conferences and events, including the Québécois Grand Prix of Formula One, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Just for Laughs festival (comedy festival), and Les Francos de Montréal (devoted exclusively to French-language music).

Québec City
Population: 531,902

Québec City is the capital and second largest city of Québec. The Algonquian people had originally named the area Kébec, an Algonquin word meaning "where the river narrows", because the Saint Lawrence River narrows proximate to the promontory of Quebec and its Cape Diamant. The French-speaking settlers, who established the city in 1608, adopted the Algonquin name. The ramparts surrounding Old Québec (Vieux-Québec) are one of the oldest fortified city walls still remaining in place. The city's landmarks include the Château Frontenac hotel that dominates the skyline and the Citadelle of Québec, an intact fortress that forms the centrepiece of the ramparts surrounding the old city and constitutes as the official residence of the President of Québec. The National Assembly of Québec (parliament), the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (National Museum of Fine Arts of Québec), and the Musée de la civilisation (Museum of Civilization) are found within or near Vieux-Québec.

Politics of Québec: Political system

The political system of Québec consists of an executive branch, a legislative branch, and a judicial branch, based on the framework of a semi-presidential system determined by the Constitution. Executive power is exercised by the President of the Republic and the Government. The Government consists of the Prime Minister and ministers. The Prime Minister is appointed by the President, and is responsible to Québec's parliament, the National Assembly. The government, including the Prime Minister, can be revoked by the National Assembly through a "censure motion"; this ensures that the Prime Minister is always supported by a majority of the legislature.

The National Assembly passes statutes and votes on the budget; it controls the action of the executive through formal questioning on the floor of the National Assembly and by establishing commissions of inquiry. The constitutionality of the statutes is checked by the Constitutional Council, members of which are appointed by the President of the Republic and the President of the National Assembly. Former presidents of the Republic also are members of the Council.

The independent judiciary is based upon civil law system which evolved from the Napoleonic codes. It is divided into the judicial branch (dealing with civil law and criminal law) and the administrative branch (dealing with appeals against executive decisions), each with their own independent supreme court of appeal: the Court of Cassation for the judicial courts and the Conseil d'Etat for the administrative courts. The Québecois government includes various bodies that check abuses of power and independent agencies.

Québec is a unitary state. However, its administrative subdivisions—regions, departments and communes—have various legal functions, and the national government is prohibited from intruding into their normal operations.
