Detailed Description

Jeffrey Mine

Anmerkung:

Val-des-Sources ... formally known as Asbestos. Am 17. Dezember 2020 wurde die Stadt Asbestos formal durch die Regierung der kanadischen Provinz Québec in Val-des-Sources umbenannt, und damit der positive Ausgang eines städtischen Referendums vom Oktober 2020 bestätigt. Anlass war die negative Konnotation des Namens Asbestos.
