Here’s some help: try to find it here: 144 pages of official road signs.

And you turn that into a blanket statement about Québec road signs ? Fake news. !

My Parisianfriend tells me some of those signs are in French!

Reminds me of a gag from a movie. A bunch of Americans are trying to start a war with Canada, and they are driving on a Canadian highway with a sign "Death to Canada" on their vehicle. They are stopped by Canadian police who inform them, this is not allowed. They are required to display a French translation.
