Our neighbor to the North, Canada, is the subject of this week’s show. Specifically, immigration to that proud and native land. Starting in the early 19th Century, a great wave of immigrants made their way to the Dominion to start a new life in a land of promise and opportunity lacking in Britain and Europe. Many guidebooks were available for the new prospective citizen of Canada, from which we share a small selection.
