On this day: Cartier Discovered the St Lawrence

Monday, 9th June 2014 by

On June 9, 1534, Jacques Cartier became the first European to see the St Lawrence River, where he spent some time exploring before returning to France. Although many people consider this as the start of Canadian history, it is actually believed that there was quite a bit that went on in the country before that date, particularly amongst the First Nations peoples, who were - after all - here first.
