Les trois rivières

— Samkook —

English:
The Three Rivers - Montague, Brudenell, and Cardigan - wind through towns, villages and communities in Kings County, draining into Cardigan Bay, known to the Mi'Kmaq people as Samkook (sandy shore). One of the first French settlements on Prince Edward Island, founded by Jean-Pierre Roma, grew here in the early 1700s, where the Brudenell and Montague Rivers meet at Georgetown Harbour. This same point of land also has the distinction of being the birthplace of Prince Edward Island's father of Confederation, Andrew A. MacDonald. The Waters of the Three Rivers still flow, as they have for centuries, past farms, fisheries and shipyards, linking all those who live along their banks to each other, to the past and to the future. The natural beauty of the Three Rivers has been nurtured and protected through careful development and community stewardship. Designation of the Three Rivers as a Canadian Heritage River will safeguard its rich history and pristine natural beauty for generations to come.
French:
Les eaux du bassin hydrographique des trois rivières - composé des rivières Montague, Brudenell et Cardigan - traverse bon nombre de villes, de villages et de communautés du comté de Kings et se déversent dans la baie de Cardigan que les Mi'Kmaq appellent Samkook (rive sablonneuse). L'un des premiers établissements français de l'Île du Prince-Édouard, fondé par Jean-Pierre Roma, a vu le jour ici au confluent des rivières Brudenell et Montague, dans la port de Georgetown, au début des années 1700. Cet endroit est aussi le lieu de naissance d'un des Pères de la Confédération, Andrew A. MacDonald. Depuis des siècles, le bassin des trois rivières baigne des fermes, des pêches et des chantiers navals, reliant tous les habitants riverains les uns aux autres de même qu'aux richesses du passé et aux promesses de l'avenir. Un développement prudent et une intendance communautaire ont permis de préserver et de protéger le bassin des trois rivières dont la riche histoire et la beauté naturelle subsisteront pour les générations à venir grâce à son ajout au Réseau de rivières du patrimoine canadien.
