Abstract If some of these patterns had continued to 1960, then the epithet “Great Darkness” (Grande Noirceur) would hold true for this period. Considering the strong links between education and economic development, Québec’s ongoing relative stagnation surely must have meant that its people were less educated and in poorer health than its neighbours. And hence we could justifiably continue to use the term “Great Darkness.”
