This song was inspired by the Keeper of the Bell who liberated the Bell of Batoche from Millbrook, Ontario in 1991. He imparted the story of the bell or “Marie Antoinette” to Andrea Menard, who in turn collaborated with her long-time co-writer, Robert Walsh. Together they created a song to commemorate this historic event.
