 That the province of Quebec has a different legal system than the rest of Canada.  

Were currently visiting friends in Ottawa - which is right over the river from Gatineau, Quebec. I've always known that Quebec laws were different so over dinner last night took the opportunity for someone close to the province to explain the reason why. And that reason is fascinating: 

  •  Quebec law is unique in Canada because Quebec is the only province in Canada to have a juridical legal system (pertaining to the administration of justice) under which civil matters are regulated by French-heritage civil law.
  • Public law, criminal law and other federal law operate according to Canadian common law.
