||This program follows the history of New France; the discoveries of Cartier and Champlain; the story of what the Indians called Kebec (which the French spelled Quebec), which means "river [i.e., the St. Lawrence] narrow here"; the growth of industry and population on both sides of the international border; and the changing role of the river from barrier to international symbol.
