So say that it’s more French these days there than in Paris.
The place is the possession of St. Pierre & Miquelon, a French territory just off the coast of Newfoundland. The electric currents, the telephone and legal systems are French -as are the traditions.
We speak with Thierry Balse from St. Pierre about the islands, their Christmas and life uyear round in a place that at once looks to Paris, Canada and the States to the south.
A different take from a unique place.
