Isabelle Loranger, 11, and Garry Elliott prepare authentic poutine made with French fries, fresh gravy and cheese curd shipped all the way from Quebec. The traditional Canadian meal, which originated in Montreal in the 1500s, was part of demonstrations at the Vive les voyageurs winter festival at the Fort Langley National Historic Site over the weekend.  The annual festival celebrates French-Canadian culture as it was in the historic fort during the Hudson Bay Company trading days (electric crock pots notwithstanding). Visitors enjoyed food demos, Metis dancing, musical spoons lessons and live French-Canadian music. - Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times
