There’s a ‘little’ slice of Canada nestled deep in MinnesotaFounded by a French Canadian who wandered just a little too far south, the Minnesota town of Little Canada was born in 1844 – a full two decades before Canadian Confederation. It was called “New Canada” then, when Benjamin Gervais decided to settle the area, now a suburb of St. Paul. The town of 10,000 still proudly displays a red maple leaf and a fleur de lis as its symbol. The Post’s Jen Gerson spoke Tuesday to Little Canada town councillor Michael McGraw.
