On this day in Our Islands History

In 1889, a notice was sent to the Premier of Quebec, Mr. Mercier, by the population of the islands, concerning the holdings of the land on the islands.

In 1962, Mr. Hector Carbonneau, linguist, author, translator and Chief of personnel at the Parliment's General Translation Service of Quebec, died.
