Jacques Cartier Bridge

Bronze Bust

On June 30, 1934, the government of France gave Canada a bronze bust of the famous explorer and discoverer from Saint-Malo. The sculpture was officially unveiled on September 1, 1934. The bust was presented by Mr. Henry Bordeaux and was accepted on behalf of Canada by the Minister of Marine at the time, the Honourable Alfred Duranleau.. That same day, the “Le Havre Bridge” officially became the “Jacques Cartier Bridge”.
