Port of registry Quebec City near where is was converted. The French express Quebec City as "Quebec"

Nothing to do with French, Chief. Even for us French Canadians, if there is a possibility of confusion between the city and the province, we will specify which one we are talking about by stating "le" or "au" before Quebec in the case of the province or "la ville de" before it for the city. When it is clear which one we are talking about, we don't bother specifying.

ALL port registry indicated on merchant ships refer to the "port", or city, of registration. So you never specify "city" even when there could be some confusion.

For instance, a ship registered in New York City will only say "New York", since for ship registry there is no possible confusion with New York State.

To the outsider its looks odd.

When the first pictures of Asterix came out on social media many people asked that question, some on RCN themed pages perhaps some because they saw it as some sort of slight against english Canada. Some thought it was a government owned ship and thought it should of said Ottawa. The question was asked and answered.
