The Land God Gave to Cain

I was not meant to be in school, I'm totally fighting my destiny. Here is a quote that has nothing to do with the unresearchable paper I'm supposed to be writing:

“Religious and ethnic traditions may have divided the settlers of Canada, but there was one point on which there was universal agreement among them. The landscape and climate of the country they had chosen to call home was at best inhospitable and at worst life-threatening. 'The land God gave to Cain,' was the way Jacques Cartier described it when he landed on the north shore of the St.Lawrence in 1534.” Elder, Image and Identity
