Canada's History

HBC ig­nites fond mem­o­ries

- Winnipeg · Vancouver

Re­gard­ing your ar­ti­cle on the HBC (“An Epic Tale,” April-May 2020), my fa­ther, John G. W. McIn­tyre, worked for the Bay for four­teen years. He was very proud to work with the “Com­pany of Ad­ven­tur­ers,” as he put it. I have the old wooden doorstop, en­cased in acrylic, that was saved from his of­fice in the build­ing in down­town Win­nipeg. On May 2, 1970, I took a trol­ley bus to the Bay store in down­town Van­cou­ver and joined a queue to pur­chase a point blan­ket. It has been on my bed ever since and looks as good as when it was new.
