This protest song had me in tears.( Well, I'm getting old!) My Grandpere Jules Chabot and my Grandmere Rose Beaudoin had 13 children. They moved from St.Justin to Marie Reine, north of Peace River, Alberta, to homestead when my mother (the eldest) was 10.
I am grateful for their sacrifices, and their strong Catholic faith - passed on to my mother, who bore 10 children. I am grateful for my Dad and his strong pioneer roots. I am grateful for my husband, and his parents, for their generosity and love. I am grateful for my own eight children.I am grateful.
And I cry when I think of all that has been lost in Quebec.
