QGIS (1.7) systematically applies the wrong CRS when adding layers (or shapefiles from a given lot). They should be NAD83__MTM9 (EPSG:32189), as can be inferred from the prj-file, but the properties/general/options field show NAD27(CGQ77)/SCPQ_zone9. (EPSG:2015)
Granted from there, I can specify/apply the correct CRS and the layers will line up. But it is a drag to do, and redo again, for many shapefiles. Is there anyway to correct that behavior or a better approach?
Thanks for any guidance, cheers!
Update: indeed corrected with the installation of 1.8, thanks to all.
