A SON OF QUEBEC

Author: Andrew Roy

Synopsis: Andrew Roy, a direct descendent of a fille du roi, comes from a family of Quebecois nuns and priests. In the early 1800s, Charles Roy makes the decision to become an Anglican, and the family tree becomes French Protestant. Andrew grows up in the rectory of Holy Trinity Church in Levis, where his father is the clergyman. After the RCAF, he goes into teaching and eventually returns to Quebec City to work in English Protestant Education at the Provincial level. As a member of the Superior Council of Education, he is able to understand and observe the Quiet Revolution from within, and to do his best for Quebec schools in the ever-changing times.
