April fol­lies

Canada's History - - THE PACKET -

You re­ally had me go­ing af­ter read­ing about the Spring 1971 edi­tion of The

Beaver (From the Ar­chives, April-May 2018). The story of a con­tin­gent of Bud­dhist nuns com­ing to Ile- a- laCrosse in 1791 and trav­el­ling with Alexan­der Mackenzie had me very puz­zled — so much so that I delved into your ar­chives to find that edi­tion and read the story. I guess The Beaver in­dulged in April Fool’s jokes in 1971 as well. Good one.

Ed­i­tor’s note: The story in ques­tion be­gan with a pref­ace from the ed­i­tors, in­form­ing read­ers that the story was in­tended to be “an ex­cur­sion into the realm of fan­tasy.”
