*Please BYOP* You are looking for a black bison tube.

In 1910, French, French-Canadian, and Belgian settlers ventured into the region and settled in two new Fransaskois villages: Perigord and Saint-Front. Florian Montès, a native of France, was the leader of the settlers who came to Saskatchewan.

A Catholic mission had already been created by Abbé Gamache, who was also trying to recruit Francophone settlers for Perigord. The following year, the two communities established their respective post offices.

Life was not easy in the region at the beginning of the century. It was not very accessible and several settlers  turned back. Only the hardiest would remain to build their future in the region.

*S'il vous plaît, apportez votre crayon* Vous cherchez un petit tube noir.

Ce sont des colons français, canadiens-français et belges qui, en 1910, s’aventurèrent dans la région et allèrent s’installer dans deux nouveaux villages fransaskois ; Perigord et Saint-Front. C’est Florian Montès, natif de la France, qui était à la tête des colons venus s’établir en Saskatchewan.

Une mission catholique avait déjà été créée par l’abbé D. Gamache qui tentait aussi de recruter des colons francophones pour Périgord. L’année suivante, les deux communautés établirent leurs bureaux de poste respectifs.

La vie n’est pas facile dans la région au début du siècle. L’endroit est peu accessible et plusieurs colons rebrousseront chemin. Seuls les plus hardis resteront et bâtiront leur avenir dans la région.
