As Quebecer I can relate well to that. Even here you couldn't speak dialect in official positions until very recently, but it used to be the Clergy had control of virtually everything in society.
So from the outside everything sounds fairly normal and educated, then when French people come over they discover we all speak like medieval lumberjacks with no manners (no Vousvoiement).
I've heard Quebec french and the accent is a bit weird, sorry English speakers refuse to believe or accept it, but french is pluricentric. Anyway, French people (Parisians I mean) don't accept other varieties at all. Bad luck haha. Medieval lumberjack hahahahah
Come. To the dark side of French.
