Choose from a selection of fascinating accounts of the places and moments in Canadian history that helped shape the country including the Horseshoe Tavern and its impact on music, the Montreal 1967 Expo that took everyone by surprise, the unlikely serviceman hockey team that astonished the world, and the survivors and soldiers of the two great World Wars.
