What is it about Quebec that residents of that province cannot enter the comp?

They did it to themselves. Provincial rules make hosting a contest in Quebec a pain in the rear, so many competitions just exclude them because it's easier than complying with their regulations. Another member posted some links to the details in https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/general-photography-industry/201574-natio...ml#post2314112

That's the usual reason anyway. I notice Iran and North Korea residents cannot enter it either, but Iraq isn't specifically prohibited. Maybe Quebec has replaced Iraq in the Axis of Evil

Oddly enough, I thought the same!

Thanks for the link. I understand why it's easier to exclude than include.
