This exhibition was conceived to promote civic literacy and to encourage research into the rich documentary heritage of the Government of Canada available at Library and Archives Canada (LAC).
We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of the Department of Canadian Heritage, whose financial assistance through the Canadian Culture Online initiative made this work possible. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Katherine Fierlbeck, Department of Political Science, Dalhousie University, for her insight and guidance.
