400th Anniversary of Founding of Quebec as Seen by Paris Match

The National Post of Saturday June 28, 2008 points out that a leading French magazine's special edition on Quebec's 400th Anniversary confused the founding of the city (Quebec) with that of the province (Quebec). Apparently there is not a line in the 30 page special about Quebec City. Instead, they concentrate on Montreal, the rival of Quebec City.
Obviously no stamp collectors were involved or they would remember Canada #96-103 and the May 16, 2008 stamp for the founding of Quebec City.
