Today in Island History
24 June 1866 Father George Belcourt debuts his horseless carriage at a St. Jean Baptiste Day picnic in Rustico, thus becoming the first Canadian motorist, the first to buy a car, and the first to import one. He is also the first to have a car accident when he fails to negotiate a turn and goes off the road. The machine is retired.
