Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? From July 22nd to August 23rd, known as "dog days" to the Acadians, people were convinced that the water in lakes, rivers, streams and the ocean was unhealthy. Acadian mothers were reluctant to allow their children to go swimming.

Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? Between 1714 and 1754, approximately 4,500 immigrants settled in New France. They included indentured workers and soldiers stationed in the colony, but most of them, it appears, were unsavory characters, including hundreds of salt smugglers who sold salt illegally in France. France wanted to get rid of these smugglers, and the colony accepted them without complaint because once they were in New France, most of them mended their ways and were on their best behavior.
