The statue of Christ in front of St. Agnes Church surveys the destroyed downtown area of Lac-Mégantic where decontamination work is taking place.

On the way back to Quebec City from North Hatley, we took a detour to visit the town of Lac-Mégantic. Four months after the terrible train crash of July 6, the town is slowly recovering. Life goes on. Damage is visible on homes that were relatively near the fire, especially on houses with vinyl siding.
