Knight Rides across Canada to Promote Chivalry

Vincent Gabriel Kirouac of Quebec recently arrived in Saskatchewan on horseback and in armor. He doesn't hold an official knighthood, but he is making his knightly journey across Canada to promote chivalrous conduct:

He said he believes it is possible for people to behave with chivalry, even in hectic times.

Kirouac insists he has not only donned a knight's costume but has taken the role to heart.

"I am a knight," he said. "I'm trying to be that symbol of something that is incorruptible... and never to fail my duty, which is to be a knight and be good and be an example."

He said he hopes people who hear his message will adopt some of what he is espousing in their own lives.

"It's all about love," he added.


People who have met Kirouac on his journey have responded positively:

He explained that finding a place to stay has been as simple as riding into a farm yard and knocking on a door.

"You ask for the hospitality and they say 'yes' all the time," he said, adding the encounter usually begins with the person who answered the door giving him a quizzical look.
