Following on from recent previous postings regarding the arguably freemasonic, certainly ceremonious, French State visit to the UK and messages encoded in maritime nautical disasters:
This time a trawler, the archipelago Iles de la Madeleine based L'Arcadien, capsized on March 29th, the second day of the annual Canadian seal hunt in Newfoundland - tragically with the loss of four seal clubbers lives.
From the wikipedia Magdalen Islands entry (as linked above):
In 1755, the islands were inhabited by French-speaking Acadians. When the British expelled the Arcadians from the rest of what is now the Maritime Provinces of Canada, they did not come as far as the Magdalen Islands.
And the Acadians, from where the ship took her name:
"In the Great Expulsion of 1755, around 4000 to 5000 Acadians were deported from Acadia under the direction of British colonial officers and New England legislators and militia; many later settled in Lousiana, where they became known as Cajuns. Later on many Acadians returned to the Maritime provinces of Canada, most specifically New Brunswick. During the British conquest of New France the French colony of Acadia was renamed Nova Scotia (meaning New Scotland)."
"Historian John Mack Faragher has used the contemporary term, "ethnic cleansing," to describe the British actions."
And Acadia ?
From your dictionary - Arcadien
"Aca·dia (ə kā′dē ə)
region & former French colony (1604-1713) on the NE coast of North America, including what are now the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island, plus parts of Quebec and parts of Maine
Etymology: Fr Acadia, prob. < Archadia, name given by Giovanni da Verrazano (1524), after Arcadia, place of rural peace.
Arcadia, the seemingly "proverbial" land where we note, again from the wikipedia entry:"Subsequently it has become a poetic byword for an idyllic vision of unspoiled wilderness filled with the bounties of nature and inhabited by shepherds (having more or less the same connotation as Utopia), and as a concept originated in Renaissance mythology. The inhabitants were often regarded as having continued to live after the manner of the Golden Age, without the pride and avarice that corrupted other regions."
"The Libertines, especially Pete Doherty and Carl Barât, use Arcadia as the destination their ship Albion is sailing towards. " It is thought of as a place without rules or authority, where cigarettes grow on trees"
