  • the ship carrying filles du roi as brides for the settlers of New France
  • the first elections in which women in Canada were allowed to vote
  • the first gourmet meal cooked in a CPR rail camp for Cornelius Van Horne
  • a mine disaster in the Crowsnest Pass, with the subsequent introduction of safety lamps for the miners
  • and an account of the "Home Children" first sent to Canada during the nineteenth century, supposedly for a better life, but often to work in slave-labour conditions.
