Canada's History - - THE PACKET -

Ihave been a happy sub­scriber to Canada’s

His­tory for a cou­ple of years now, and I en­joy ev­ery is­sue a lot. When your De­cem­ber 2017- Jan­uary 2018 is­sue on trains ar­rived, with its strik­ingly eye-catch­ing cover pho­to­graph, I knew I was in for some­thing spe­cial. I wasn’t dis­ap­pointed — the ar­ti­cle was ex­cel­lent. I also en­joyed your lead ed­i­to­rial on the place that Canada’s rail­roads held in the towns across this coun­try. I once lived in Ver­non, Bri­tish Columbia, and on vis­it­ing there re­cently I found that the train sta­tion had ac­quired a new life as a civic build­ing for sev­eral pur­poses. The large Cana­dian Pa­cific Rail­way and Cana­dian Na­tional Rail­way sta­tion build­ings here in Vancouver are both thriv­ing and are much-loved land­marks. Once again, thank you for an ex­cel­lent is­sue of Canada’s His­tory!
