Victor Delamarre

"Notre race canadienne-française, surtout dans nos campagnes, est demeurée une race robuste et forte, parce qu'elle est une race jeune, frugale, profondément morale et chrétienne. Dans la région saguenéenne, particulièrement, il n'est pas rare de rencontrer des hommes doués d'une force physique remarquable. " (Source : " Victor De Lamarre, le roi de l'haltère ", C. de la Roche, 1924)
