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
