Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les M chins is a municipality in Quebec, Canada, about 47 kilometres (29 mi) east of Matane along Quebec Route 132.In addition to Les M chins (formerly known as Grands-M chins) itself, the municipality also includes the communities of Anse-des-M chins, Cherbourg, Cherbourg-Centre, Les lets M chins, and Petits-M chins.The name M chins is of uncertain origin although according to one theory, it may come from the French word m chants, meaning "wicked," and referring to rocks in the sea that would make navigation there dangerous. Another, less likely suggestion is that it may be a transformation of "Matsi," a 2.5 metres (8 ft 2 in) tall one-eyed monster of Mi'kmaq folklore who would come down from the mountains with a stick as big as a tree to terrorize the local people.show more
