Title
1883-1889 : quand Montréal avait son Carnaval!
Abstract
In 1882, Montreal lawyer Robert D. McGibbon, a member of the Montreal Snow Shoe Club, conceived the idea of organizing a week-long winter sporting competition between the city's various Anglophone sports clubs. The following year, 1883, the competition was organized and became North America's first winter carnival. The carnival served as a winter tourism attraction for the city. The author outlines the conflict over the exclusion of Francophone sporting clubs from the carnival competitions.
