“Thank you very much for the superb evening of introduction you offered to our workshop on experiential tourism. You were fabulous. It was fantastic to share in your passion for the history of Acadia, for which you are an incomparable ambassador. Your zest for life and your love of Acadian history are contagious.”

Cédric Davignon, Officer/Coordinator, Parks Canada, Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland

“Keep up your excellent work! You are a great ambassador of Acadia. Your shining passion really gives the students a desire to learn more. You are right to assert that there are a lot of interpretations in history books. It’s everyone’s responsibility to follow their curiosity and to become informed on those themes that touch the very core of their being. You have done it and you convey this very well! I strongly recommend your conference/workshop to all who work in identity construction and who wish to present to their students a dynamic, enriching, interactive and impassioned activity.”

Sylvain Melançon, Director, Conseil communautaire Beausoleil Inc., Miramichi, NB

 "There is no one like Diane Carmel Léger to tell young and old her stories of the intersections between Acadian roots and those of other founding peoples."

Marie Cadieux,  Director, Bouton d'or Acadie
