Famous Canadian Quotes:
Who said this? 
"I will reply from the mouth of my cannons..."

Listen first to the dramatization on 
Heritage Minutes Radio and then watch Governor Frontenac on Historic Minutes online.

Canadians have been so busy explaining to the Americans that we aren't British, and to the British that we aren't Americans that we haven't had time to become Canadians.
