"We want to show that for many year, the Saint Lawrence River was the door to invade Canada," said Andre Pirouac.

Pirouac is the director of the Naval Museum of Quebec on Rue Dalhousie. The museum, beginning June 1, will help the city celebrate the history of the Canadian Navy, which this year is marking its 100th anniversary.
