NORTH-SOUTH DI­VIDE: Jan­uary 6, 1908 was the date of a ref­er­en­dum that un­der­scored a North-South di­vide. This Glen­garry County Ar­chives sou­venir is from a plebiscite on Glen­garry with­draw­ing from United Coun­ties of Stor­mont-Dun­das-Glen­garry. Fol­low­ing a close vote, the sta­tus quo was main­tained. The South voted for the tri-county union while the North sup­ported a split. More such me­men­toes can be seen on the Ar­chives Face­book page.
