Les reportages no 70 : La Saint-Jean-Baptiste à Montréal
Dir. : Vincent Paquette [National Film Board of Canada, 1944]
With its mandate to present Canada to Canadians, the NFB sent its cameras to various important events. This news report provides a compilation of footage of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste parade in Montreal, with allegorical floats representing the different episodes in Quebec history. Viewers today will be startled to see several participants in the parade waving the Union Jack.
