“I think that growing up as a Franco-Ontarian means having the feeling of being a little different, but not necessarily having a bad life. It’s having a gift, the wealth of a slightly different perspective on your community and others.”

— Le Droit (quote from director Sebastien Higgins’ interview – translated from French)
