There is a public tree on ancestry for a Paul Gerard Reed born Montreal 19 Feb1922 died Montreal 20 May 1994. No further information apart from parents
Another tree has him marrying in Yorkshire in 1949.

From Quebec, Canada, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1968 
Marie Joseph Paul Gerard Reed
Baptism Date: 19th February  1922
Baptism Place:  Montréal, Québec (Quebec)
Place of Worship or Institution:  St-Pierre-Apôtre

Think Father is Alphonse Reed, and Mother Geraldine.  There is also a Paul Emile Reed mentioned, godfather.

I looked at the original image of this baptism this morning and I think it is baptisms of three different children as there are commas after Marie and Joseph.

There is also a comma after Paul, so that would be quads as they were all born 'aujourd'hui'.

I took it to mean that the commas just separated each Christian name, and others on the page also were separated similarly.

But now realise Geraldine Reed is the godmother, and it is Graziella Brosseau who is the Mother.  Also he is the legitimate son of Alphonse and Graziella.

It is a baptism record not a birth record so the children can be of varying ages.
