2008 Our Shared Heritage Tour

In 2008, the schooner Lois McClure traveled north to the Province of Quebec, stopping at ports-of-call along the way. She was in Quebec City for their 400th anniversary celebration, commemorating the founding of that city in 1608 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain. Then Lois McClure traveled to the St. Lawrence communities of Montreal and Trois-Rivieres, and then south along the Richilieu River and Chambly Canal to the communities of Sorel, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Chambly, and Saint-Jean.
