“In 1734 a Negro slave set fire to the City of Montreal…” This is how history writes it: Marie Angélique; a slave in a Canadian history book. But no one has spoken to the injustice that stoked the inextinguishable fire in her belly. No one can know for certain if she was responsible for the cinder and wreckage; the charred relics of a people’s pain. As Canadians, we have not told the real and forgotten story of Angélique. Not until now.
