What an odd looking guy! I can honestly say that I've never seen a North American Frenchie that looks anything like him. I'd peg him as an Eastern European if you hadn't revealed his identity.
Aemma or Veritas might be able to comment on how typical this dude for a Quebecois....?
I'd say what gives him a bit of an eastern European look is the large distance between the bottom of his nose & the top of his mouth--a very typical 'Slavic' trait (Hors?!)
Anyway, I reckon this guy is a basic Atlantidish/Westish type who just happens to have a high vault and the aforementioned eastern trait.
Chalk it up to old fashioned variability?
Good choice Elfichka.
See for me Mario Dumont just looks like your average old stock Québécois: the dark hair, dark eyes, dark complexion. His look is very Québécois/French Canadian imo. I have no idea if he is Old Stock or not though, but he certainly looks "French Canadian" to me especially in that second last photo of him standing in front of the Québec flag.
So I would tend to agree with Dalton....just weird variability. I have cousins who are this dark and are every bit as Northern European as I am. It's just what it is.
Mario Dumont looks Atlantid mostly.
He could come from anywhere in Northwestern Europe or Western Europe (Northwestern-Central France).
Here's some known Acadians who kind of look like him for reference:
Dominic LeBlanc (politician)
Robert Thibault (politician)
Roch Voisine (musician)
The most common phenotypes among Acadians are Atlantid/Atlanto-med, Alpine, and Baskid (which I see in Dumont, actually).
In my observation, Quebecois tend to be more on the Atlantid side with less Baskid elements.
