agree  NatalieD: I think you are right, but the expression does not make any sense in French. "Commune renommée" means "common knowledge" or "notorious fact".

agree  Christopher RH: I think I agree, but I'm no expert of Canadian French. To me, this sounds like an unhappy combination of "notoriété commune" and "widely renowned"...
