Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, QC

This is a basilica in Quebec where people affix their crutches to the pillars when they believe themselves to have been cured. A recent Tripadvisor review notes there were two pillars with crutches, while a century ago there were at least three. I take that as very indirect evidence that the polio vaccine turned out to be more effective than prayer.
