On 19 February 1942, Nazi soldiers, tanks and planes invaded the capital of Manitoba. Seizing Winnipeg, they captured the Premier, Major and Governor General. They looted stores, burned books and threatened a death sentence without trial to all who opposed. This isn't some alternative history fiction. This was the brain child of the Greater Winnipe…

So they sent the scholar Abe Okpik…

Day to day costs were rising in 1947 as post war subsidies were removed. As people became careful in their spending, the youth decided they'd had enough.
