First, there is the St. Lawrence River: it is the common thread, and travelled from one end to the other. It lives to the beat of the seasons. In the winter, seals are born on the pack ice of the Magdalen Islands; the canoe race on the ice takes place in Quebec City, the icebreakers’ work in the shipping lane and ice fishing in Montreal. In the summer, the lobster fishermen are out and so are the Northern Gannets on Félix Leclerc's Île d'Orléans and the City of Montreal. One thousand kilometres to the north of these urban centres lie the Montagnais, Naskapi, Cree or Attikamek territories. Even further north, the Inuit, first inhabitants of this land, live on the shores of Hudson and Ungava Bay.
