I had to drive through Ottawa to get to the electronic music festival site in the woods north of the city, and I got stuck for an hour in one way street hell, made a bunch of illegal u turns trying to get back to the point at which i got lost, and got in trouble for turning right on red light.
It should be legal...the only place that I know where it's not is here in Montreal (I just moved here from near Ottawa, remember) I don't understand why you'd get in trouble for that...maybe that area or that light was an exception? One way streets really can be horrible if you're not sure of where you're going, though (although I suppose it could be argued that they make things a lot simpler )!
Oh, you are right, I might have missed a 'no turn on red light' sign at that particular intersection. I immediately thought that maybe in all of Quebec you're not allowed to turn on red, thinking 'man, those ppl are trying so hard to be European'...bad me.
