L'eau de la mer, des lacs et des rivières peut être source de bonheur, de plaisir, de richesses, mais l'eau peut être aussi source d'épreuves, de malheur.

Ce monument veut rappeler la mémoire de ceux et celles qui furent engloutis dans les eaux au cours des 350 années d'existence du Pubnico et leur rendre hommage.

The water of the sea, the lakes and the rivers can be source of happiness, pleasure, riches, but water can also be source of tests, of misfortune.

This monument wants to recall the memory of those who were swallowed up in the waters during the 350 years of the Pubnico's existence and to pay them homage.
