On February 7, 1982, a report by journalist André Laprise on the show Green Weekhosted by Yvon Leblanc, took us to explore Gros Morne National Park.
Watching this report makes us realize that, sometimes, place names can be misleading.
The designation of Gros Morne National Park suggests that we find ourselves in a place of boring sadness.
It's quite the opposite. Gros-Morne has absolutely surprising landscapes.
Its geological formations are unique in the world.
The park contains three distinct types of forests inhabited by extremely rich flora and fauna.
The history and characteristics of its human settlement are completely original.
These are all elements that convinced UNESCO to include the Gros Morne National Park site on its World Heritage List in 1987.
