On this day in Our Islands History

In 1663, the country of New-France, in cooperation with the one of Miscou, conceded the Magdalen Islands and the Isle of Saint Jean (PEI) to Francois Doublet of Honfleur.

In 1954, the Islands first arena open in Grindstone, with a hockey game. The teams playing were "les Flots" from Etang-du-Nord against "Notre-Dame" from Fatima.
