(1) While the Population census of Saint Lucia for 1991 recorded the existence of the Indigenous People [and I was counted in that section], the State has refused to recognize their existence in the Constitution and Official documents; though registered in the State Records.

26 years earlier the Saint Jean Baptiste Society in Quebec had adopted the maple leaf as its symbol (apparently the first time the maple leaf was used as a symbol), and it was decreed that for the prince's visit the Canadians should wear a maple leaf.
