Quebec is near-sighted

The official tourist webpage of Quebec doesn't tell the story right. It starts the history of New France in 1608--not 1604. It talks about the founding of Quebec city and Montreal, and then has this:
From 1660 to 1713 the settlement of New France accelerated as France established colonies in Acadia (now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) and along the shores of the St. Lawrence.
I dropped them a note.
