Long Description:
Tout le monde connait l'hymne nationnale du Canada, le fameux O Canada, mais saviez vous que l'homme qui l'a ecrit est venu au monde ici meme le 28 Decembre 1842 ?

Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.


Everybody knows our national anthem, but did you know that the writer was born here on December 28, 1842 ?

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
