GUEST,thurg BS: Acadian Descent (41) RE: BS: Acadian Descent 02 Nov 06

"A good portion of Quebecois are of Acadian descent."

Was it Edith Butler (or Angele Arsenault?) who got a lot of flak for making a statement to that effect some years back (I never quite understood what the problem was)?

"they hid in the bush and were protected by the Indian population."

There seems to have been a lot of this sort of thing at that time, Natives helping out the outlawed Acadians. In the years leading up to the expulsion, the British authorities brought in various sanctions to try to put a damper on the cosy relations between the two suspect communities; obviously, they didn't succeed.
