About the presence of laurentians, I feel I need to explain the choice a bit. I discovered that *here* in the 1840s, 52 french-canadians were exiled to australia after the rebelion of 1837. They were eventualy pardonned but except for 2 who died and 1 who got married, they all went back home. The area were they lived is now the municipality of Canada Bay (next to Exiled Bay).
For obvious reasons and due to the nature of IB, this was too good to pass up so I decided to somehow include this bit of trivia and embelish on it.
