Hello everyone !

 Canada owes its name to a Frenchman.  

Canada owes its name to the French navigator Jacques Cartier (1491-1557), the first European to explore the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the surrounding lands.  

In 1534, he left Saint-Malo, where he was born, landed in Gaspé, a city located in the very east of Canada, and took possession of it in the name of the King of France, François 1er.

 A year later, Cartier asked directions from two Iroquoians, who then pointed him in the direction of “Kanata”.  

In reality, they allude to the village of Stadacona, the current location of Quebec City.  

For lack of another name, Cartier then uses the term “Canada” to designate this city and the surrounding territory.  

Good day and good game ;)
