Great Revelations: Canada and the 1921 Census

Toronto Branch of OGS welcomes Glenn Wright on Monday evening, when, in anticipation of the release of the 1921 census. His presentation will look at the history of that census, with reference to others, and examine the state of Canada in 1921.
  • Canada's population was 8.8 million, less than anticipated. Why?
  • With people living longer quite a few people alive today will be found.
  • There are also famous, and infamous people.
  • In Toronto Banting and Best should be discovered on the eve of their discovery of insulin.
  • 1921 was an election year, one in which Canadian women first got to exercise the right to vote in a federal election, and when Agnes Macphail became the first woman elected to parliament.
  • And what's the UFO connection?
There will be an additional short presentation by Marian Press: "Writing for the Toronto Tree."
That's Monday, March 25, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Community Hall, 5110 Yonge Street, Toronto. www.torontofamilyhistory.org/
