Old Montreal's secret archives
She said that she was pesonally given a tour of the special climate-controled storage area where many important documents are kept.
Throughout the ages clerics have been able to control history and pick and choose what facts they want to relate.
I say it'd be great to get those documents taken out and shared openly. Bernier's quest was to prove that the city's original founders sought to impose a certain type of mystical, pro-feminist Catholicism in the new settlement.
Sharing those documents could either support or disprove that notion.
I'd be more curious to know what other political or historical information could be unearthed. Some of it might not be flattering to the church, such as stuff relating to the Duplessis Orphan scandal or other child abuse stories.
