Ville de Gatineau Eastbound view on Rue Jean-Proulx approaching Boulevard Saint-Joseph showing the sign for R-105 and directing southbound A-5 traffic to the right. Passing in the distance is an STO bus, one of a fleet of largely dilapidated vehicles that most transit systems in neighboring Canada would be embarrassed to put on the road.

Ville de Gatineau Southbound view on Boulevard Saint-Joseph at a traffic light past Chemin Freeman. At left is the local office of the SAAQ, Quebec's one and only auto insurer. In the Socialist People's Republic of Manitoba, their equivalent of the SAAQ is, without a doubt, the most reviled organization in the province.

Ville de Gatineau Southbound view on Boulevard Saint-Joseph approaching Rue Juneau showing the signs directing traveles to TOP Karting and the Casino du Lac-Leamy.

Northbound view showing the sign reminding drivers to give cyclists a wide berth. When the speed limit is more than 50 km/h, as it is on this stretch of R-105, drivers are required to give a cyclist 1.5 m of space when passing. Otherwise, the minimum distance is one meter, as it is in neighboring Ontario, Canada.

Northbound view showing a government propaganda sign, sadly not unique to Quebec. Given how much money Quebec sucks out of Canada, $3.6 of the $3.7M poured into this road probably came from the pockets of Canadian taxpayers, with the Quebec government complaining bitterly about having to fork over the extra $100,000.
