Two feature articles prompted by the demise of the late Queen lead off the feature articles in the new Canada’s History issue. Carolyn Haris reviews Elizabeth’s 70-year reign as Queen of Canada, while Christopher Moore rehashes the challenges surrounding any change from the monarchical system.
Michael Dupuis recounts the saga of devastation and rebuilding after the Halifax explosion of 6 December 1917 when a model district named Hydrostone was constructed.
Amongst the regular departments is a column by Paul Jones on the good, bad and ridiculous of genealogy. Can you guess at the identity of any of those mentioned?
There’s also an extended books section, beyond the usual review of those newly published, including two on First World War nurses, plus a book and gift guide in time for the holiday season.

This month’s Canada’s History is far more interesting than the columns suggest. A map from the mid sixteenth century even notes Canada on it, And the Paul Jones article is much fun.
