For your general knowledge, here's the story : in 1534, Jacques Cartier, Canada's discoverer, met an Iroquois. That indigenous showed his village, named Stadacona, and said Kanata. Cartier didn't knew what it means but he loved the name, so he choose the name Kanata for the new country he just dicovered. With time Kanata became Canada and the city of Stadacona became...Québec City.
