How much of a problem is that? Basically, can anyone tell me what too look for and any suggestions?
I can't comment other than to say that it's an incredible city. My wife and I visited Montreal in the early 1990's. We felt very safe, even in the central parts of the city, even at night.
We did not prepare for our vacation to Quebec by learning much French. This was not a problem at all in Montreal. A little more difficult for us in Quebec City, but not too bad. The only time we had some problems was when we traveled North from Quebec City to the Gaspe' Peninsula.
