OK, the previous title of this post (Hillary Clinton: A French-Canadian U.S. president?) was somewhat of an overstatement. But many Quebecers are delighted to learn today that Hillary Clinton has French-Canadian ancestry. Apparently, the roots are quite deep.

And, according to a Canadian Press report, she is “a distant relative of many prominent Quebecers, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Céline Dion.”

How cool is that!

You know who Quebecers are rooting for on Nov. 8.

Here’s the link to read more about Clinton’s connection to New France in the second half of the 1600s.
