Thank you Premier and Fathers of Confederation. Merci Monsieur le premier ministre et les pères de la confédération.

It is quite a moment for Catherine and me to be standing here in the Atlantic Canada, in front of Province House, where Canadian Federation was forged.

Quel plaisir de goûter à la douceur de l'île et ses traditions Mik Maq, acadiennes et celtiques, parmi plusieurs autres.
