Lachine, Quebec

What is Lachine, Quebec known for?


local character

constituting the Western third of the Island of Montreal. As such there are no precise boundaries, but rather a fundamentally similar cultural and societal identity. The West Island is not a city, but rather a collection of independent cities, towns and villages in addition to several borough of the City of Montreal that share an intimate relationship and identity with the citizens of Montreal, and yet have also developed a unique common identity and strong sense of local character. Again, for this reason it is difficult to say exactly which communities constitute the West Island, though it is largely understood to mean all communities, independent or otherwise, developed on the island of Montreal West of Highway 13 and 32nd Avenue. Some would argue the communities of Saint-Laurent (Saint-Laurent, Quebec), Lachine (Lachine, Quebec) and LaSalle (LaSalle, Quebec), in addition to the Western off-island communities, such as Vaudreuil-Dorion, Hudson (Hudson, Quebec) and the four communities of Île Perrot should be included in which communities define the West Island, given the common threads of settlement and factors determining their development. *1689 - Frontenac is reappointed governor of New France. *1689 - August 5. Fifteen hundred Iroquois warriors attack the settlement of Lachine (Lachine, Quebec), killing or torturing most if its inhabitants. This incident would become known as the Lachine massacre. In the first half of the 17th century, the Dutch-allied Iroquois made substantial territorial gains against the French-allied Indians, often threatening French settlements at Montreal and Trois-Rivières (Trois-Rivières, Quebec). In an attempt to secure the colony, in 1665 the Carignan-Salières Regiment was sent to New France. Their campaign in 1666 devastated a number of Mohawk communities, who were forced to negotiate a peace. A period of prosperity followed for France's colony, but the Iroquois, now supported by the English, continued to expand their territory to the westward, fighting French allies in the Great Lakes region, and again threatening the French fur trade. In the 1680s the French became actively involved in the conflict again, and they and their allied Indians made significant gains against the Iroquois, including incursions deep into the heartland of Iroquoia (present-day Upstate New York). After a devastating raid (Lachine massacre) by the Iroquois against the settlement of Lachine (Lachine, Quebec) in 1689, and the entry the same year of England into the Nine Years' War (known in the English colonies as King William's War), Governor Frontenac (Louis de Buade de Frontenac) organized raiding expeditions against English communities all along the frontier with New France. French and English colonists, and their Indian allies, then engaged in a protracted border war that was formally ended when the Treaty of Ryswick was signed in 1697. The treaty, however, left unresolved the issue of Iroquois sovereignty (both France and England claimed them as part of their empire), and French allies in the upper Great Lakes continued to make war on the Iroquois. Emboldened by the two victories, the British landed at Pointe-Claire (Pointe-Claire, Quebec), on the Island of Montreal, only to withdraw after Forster established the strength of General Benedict Arnold's force at Lachine (Lachine, Quebec). In pursuit of a dwindling column, Arnold followed the British using bateaux, but was deterred from landing by Forster's placement of men along the embankment at Quinze-Chênes (Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec), supported by two captured cannon pieces. Stanley, George Francis Gillman , ''Canada Invaded, 1775-1776'', p. 122 On the 27th, Forster sent Sherburne under a flag of truce to inform Arnold that terms to a prisoner exchange favourable to the British had been agreed upon. Arnold accepted the conditions, with the exception of Americans being forbidden from serving elsewhere. Both Arnold and Forster had postured during the battle, each threatening the other with the prospect of atrocities: the killing of prisoners by Forster's Indian allies and the destruction of Indian villages by Arnold's men. The exchange would be denounced by the American Second Continental Congress and the arrangement reneged upon under the pretext that abuses had been committed by Forster's men.

quot based

summary of this rather long discussion. Montréalais (User:Montréalais) has proposed that boroughs which used to be separate cities be in the form Lachine or if disambiguation is necessary in the form Anjou (Montreal) (this is the form used by other boroughs). Larineso (User:Larineso) and I (Farquard (User:Farquard)) agree. Earl Andrew (User:Earl Andrew) is opposed because he asserts that these boroughs are "communities" based on the fact that they appear on maps, and should therefore be in the form Lachine, Quebec like municipalities and unincorporated settlements. Montréalais, Larineso and I maintain that these boroughs are not communities in any way that other neighbourhoods are not. Maclean25 (User:Maclean25), Zhatt (User:Zhatt) and Luigizanasi (User:Luigizanasi) have also commented. 1) Move all of these boroughs that are ''not'' going to demerge (Anjou (Anjou, Quebec), Lachine (Lachine, Quebec), LaSalle (LaSalle, Quebec), Montreal North (Montreal North, Quebec), Outremont (Outremont, Quebec), Saint-Laurent (Saint-Laurent, Quebec), Saint Leonard (Saint Leonard, Quebec), Verdun (Verdun, Quebec)), to the form Anjou (Montreal). This mimics the one existing case of disambiguation (Ville-Marie (Montreal)), and solves the problems above. map_caption Location of Lachine on the Island of Montreal.
