I went to Toronto and then to Niagara Falls just two weeks ago.  I had good tracks from Sarnia to Toronto back to Sarnia but not hardly anything while in Niagara area.  I went from MI to ON and back.

I dunno where you will be in Quebec. But APRS coverage is rock solid  
across Southern Quebec (Montreal vicinity). My stepson goes to  
college in Montreal and when I drive from vermont to Montreal the  
digi coverage is wall-to-wall from 5 miles south of the border to and  
all around Montreal. I run WIDE2-2 and often hear my packet repeated  
as many as four five times.

If you run a D7 with a 1/4wave magmount you will print to the APRS-IS  
80-100%.
