La guerre, la guerre, c’est pas une raison pour se faire mal

La guerre, la guerre, c’est pas une raison pour se faire mal

by Andrew GreenfieldThe title, of course, is a line from the much celebrated Quebec film ‘La Guerre des tuques’.

Snow forts play an integral part in the film and bring pleasure to Quebec children (and adults) throughout Canada’s French province during the long winters. 

The city’s first snow storm has finished and the white stuff looks like it’s here to stay.

Well, after having watched the aforementioned film and now that my half Quebecois, half British, family is firmly ensconced in Quebec City, we thought that it would be a good time to have a crack at testing out our construction skills and building a snow fort worthy a place on the film set.

This is turning out to be a fun family activity and once finished, the kids (and no doubt their friends) will benefit from having a new den to play in for the next few months.

We’ve had to start shipping in sledges full of snow from the nearby park to cater for demand.

This is a work in progress and looks like it’ll take a while to complete.

But the good thing is, we definitely have a while don’t we?

When is the snow scheduled to go? June, July???

Is anyone else out there in the Quebec City region building a snow fort?

Send us your pictures, we’d love to see them.
