"Victoria?" History, culture and politics Tip by Deus_ultima

by Deus_ultima

In Quebec, people DO NOT CELEBRATE VICTORIA DAY! And honestly, last time a royal came here..they we're so spooked, they never came back and probably never will.

Victoria day is then replaced by : Dollard-des-Ormeaux Day. A crook to some, hero to others! Adam Dollard, Sieur Des Ormeaux is told to have saved 'La Nouvelle-France'!!
