Located on an archipelago about 15 miles (25 km) off the southern coast of the island of Newfoundland, Canada, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon represent the sole remaining vestige of France's once vast North American possessions.
The islands became a French overseas territory in 1946 and in May 1985 the islands were given a new status with a new name, CollectivitÃ©.
French pride is extremely strong here. The inhabitants speak French and adhere to French customs and traditions. The majority of the population (6,500) is Roman Catholic and the only proper national flag accepted is that of France.
This Island has always interested me. It's 15 miles off the coast of Canada, is a French territory, belonging to France, and still fully French.
Talk about a mouse living next door to a giant...
Well, they have a live webcam. And it's kinda cool to check into now and then.
Looks like a beautiful day there today.
Here is the link to the webcam.
