    Canada Year-By-Year: 1876

    Overall, as Canada moved into its ninth year, it was a pretty bland year overall. No big scandals, no big events, but there were still several notable governmental acts, elections, births, deaths and more!

    We continue our journey through Canadian history with 1876!

    Rancher John Ware

    Rancher John Ware

    He was born into slavery but by the time of his death in 1905, he would become a legend of the Canadian West and one of the most respected men Calgary has ever seen.

    This is the story of a man named John Ware, whose exploits border on tall tale, but who was a living breathing man who helped shape the Alberta ranching lifestyle.

    The Origins Of Tim Hortons

    The Origins Of Tim Hortons

    It is a coffee shop that is part of Canadiana. Love them or hate them, there is no denying the impact Tim Hortons has had on Canada.

    In today’s episode, I look at not the company that it is now, but the origins of the company, when it was just a dream of an NHL hockey player named Tim Horton.

    The death of over 50 Canadians in the crash of a jet at Tehran has brought the relations between Iran and Canada to the forefront.

    Kit Coleman

    Kit Coleman

    Kit Coleman was the first female war correspondent in the world, the first syndicated Canadian columnist and one of the most popular journalists of the 1890s and 1900s.

    Despite all that, she dealt with prejudice against her sex and a constant push to write about “women’s topics”.

    Today, she is remembered as a pioneering journalist that made the road for countless female journalists today.

    Canada Goes Metric

    Canada Goes Metric

    In 1970, Canada made the decision to ditch Imperial measurements and go metric.
    If you think the carbon tax was a hot button issue, then the metric system was that multiplied by 1000.
    From Conservative MPs opening a gas station that sold by the gallon, to citizens suing the government.
    This is the story of that change that had lasting impacts on Canada.
