Canadian Government Doubles Quebec's Territory in 1912


How many people are aware that the Canadian Parliament in 1912 passed a law giving to the Province of Quebec, jurisdiction over de territory of Ungava thus more than doubling its territory as described in this "La Presse" map/collage of the province, of the 12th of May 1912. I had read about this but completely forgot about it until going over some old newspapers.

I am sure many Canadians/Quebecers will be surprised to learn about this.
