I am working today from home and just happened to find this old footage of life on the Gaspe Coast on a You tube clip. The music and footage are so familiar and it reflects the heritage of who we are as Gaspesians. Watching this makes me feel like I belong to this special place. The Coast is a unique place with an interesting mix of cultures that made the penisula what it is today. Its history tells a story of people of Irish, Scottish, English, Jersey, Acadian, French, and the Native Mik'Maq people who were determined to turn the land into a place that they could call home. Their lives were filed with struggles, yet I cannot help but admire their determination to survive and thrive under what must have been harsh conditions. Yes I am proud to be a Gaspesian.
