On the back of the card: Located in French-sepaking St. Boniface, the oldest cathedral in Western Canada was founded in 1818. The original church has been replaced several times as fire destroyed the former structure. After the 1968 fire, a modern cathedral and forecourt were built within the walls of the ruins. In the graveyard are buried Bishop Provencher who founded the church and the controversial Louis Riel.
