little girl watches Saint Jean Baptiste entertainment story unfold throughout rainy day resting on her father’s lap under umbrella.
The scene is 2016 during Quebec’s Fete National which originally was its patron saint’s day until the separatist Parti Québécois made it a secular event in late 1970’s.
This little girl along with her father were but a few that braved the wet weather that day to enjoy free entertainment on a stage across street from Dollard-des-Ormeaux city hall.
On stage was a young blond woman singer in torn jeans accompanied by her four man band playing rock ‘n roll music.
Each year a stage gets erected for three events during the summer months, Fete, Canada Day, and Blues Festival during which entertainment is provided West Islanders.
All such entertainment events paid by Quebec and Canadian governments from taxpayers’ money they collected each year.
