Biographical history

The Knights of Columbus, Council No. 4742, had a hockey team named the St. Albert Antiques from which the Canadian Unity committee was formed in 1977. The goal of the Canadian Unity Committee was to educate Québécois about the French heritage in Western Canada. The committee formed in response to talk of Québec independence from Canada. Francophone cultural groups from Alberta also joined the committee. The goals of the group were to exchange cultural views of French people in Alberta with people in Québec, to promote a common heritage of Canada and Québec through the cultural practice of hockey, and to invite a Québec exchange group to come to Alberta in promotion of Canadian unity. Members of the committee visited the province of Québec in 1978 to educate Québécois about French communities in Alberta.
