And an excellent resource it is, Mona.

If anyone is interested in reading about slavery in Canada and in
particular Montreal in the 1700s, may I recommend Afua Cooper's book
"The Hanging of Angelique"? Cooper was able to recreate the atmosphere
of Montreal and the life and world of a slave in those early days. It is
an enlightening read.
