Not Many People R-R-Realize
You know there are some English who have lived in the Quebec all their life, but they don't speak French. That's like saying: "I lived in Quebec, but I didn't inhale."
You know, Angus,
Not many people realize that Quebec was named by a Scot.
That's right. You see it was James Ross (Scot) who traveled with Cartier who saw a promontory
From the boat and said: "Qué Bec!" instead of "Quel Bec."
Well, his French wasn't a very good, and neither was his English - but his Gaelic was great.
And also, the battle of the Plains of Abraham. The Plains were named after Abraham Martin (Scot) who owned them. Yes, indeed.
And he probably charged the participants a tidy rent for the occasion.
And after the battle, when Wolfe was killed, it was his second in command, General Murray (Scot) who accepted the surrender from the French, wounded, Montcalm's second in command, General Ramezay (Scot).
That's right. So the key to the city of Quebec was exchanged in Gaelic - much to the confusion of the inhabitants, who to this day cannot figure out who won.
