Title
Metis: Wee Scotland of the Gaspé
Abstract
Metis Beach was the name of a village and summer resort in Matane County, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence. It is now referred to as Métis-sur-Mer. Starting in 1818, John MacNider (1760-1829), the Seigneur of Grand Metis, began settling the area with Scottish immigrants. He also persuaded Governor Sir James Kempt to build the road that would connect Metis by land to the outside world. The road became a settlement magnet, and Metis quickly became the principal population centre for the Gaspé region. The author offers a biography of John MacNider and many of Metis' other nineteenth century leading citizens.
