Historic Milestones

Various dates in the history of Canada have been immortalized on the front pages of Canadian daily newspapers and in several special issues created for the events. People are often surprised to discover that an occurrence which now has great significance in the development of the Canadian identity deserved only a brief mention on an inside page of the newspaper of the time, or, sometimes, no mention at all. The following events were prepared from transparencies used for a previous joint Canadian-American project. Some titles previously displayed were not available because of copyright. We plan to add more historic milestones to this page in the future.
