French Connection Tour:
At the end of the 17th century, The French Colony of Canada (New France) was concentrated around Quebec, Trois-Rivieres and Montreal. Threatened with British intervention, the King of France gave the order to expand westward. A few explorers convinced several hundred adventurers to risk everything to establish a new life in this area. This is the story of their hardships, accomplishments and “joie de vivre”. This is the story of “The French Connection”.
