THE BIRTH OF CANADA YOU'VE NEVER HEARD
The Untold Story:
For most people, Canada began somehow with Samuel Champlain and his interaction with the Natives in Ontario and Quebec.
For others, Canada began with Confederation.
Both starting points contributed to the early beginnings of Canada. Our spiritual heritage, though, came out of the persecution of the French Protestants (Huguenots) between 1515 and 1715 (a period of 200 years). This is largely the UNTOLD history – God’s Providential History – of Canada, told to you by video stories.
Out of Persecution:
Persecution began with Francis I and culminated under Louis XIV. The marble frieze mounted over the left doorway of the House of Commons clearly points to this fact. It shows Francis I on the left and Louis XIV on the right. The Senate foyer bears witness to this with portraits of all the kings of France, from Francis I to Louis XIV, hanging on its walls. The image of this frieze has been chosen to represent this course.

The French Connection
The French Connection is a ‘story-based’ video History course.
It links our history to the marble frieze mounted over the left doorway of the House of Commons. Covering 200 years of history, this frieze shows King Francis I of France on the left, and King Louis XIV on the right.
It uncovers the stories of the French Protestants (Huguenots) who invested their lives and resources to establish the first colonies in the Atlantic Provinces (Acadia), Quebec and Ontario (New France).
It exposes the reason why this marble frieze represents stories of the persecution of the Huguenots, which started under Francis I and continued under all but one king.
