" Pierre du Guast, Sieur de Monts; Champlain; that splendid visionary the Barin de
Poutrincourt, and the poet lawyer-philosopher Mark Lescarbot, play their parts on the
fascinating, dramatic and tragic stage of New France. The rivalry between the two
lieutenant-governors of Acadia: Charles de la Tour and d'Aulnay Charnisay, and the
gallant defence by Marie de la Tour of her husband's fort at the mouth of the Saint John
river, are more fully dealt with than in any previous work of this nature." [Inside dust jacket]

The Imperial Federation was a late-19th early-20th century proposal to create a federated union in
place of the existing British Empire. Canadian advocates of imperial federation, are called
"Canadian Imperialists" and their ideology "Canadian Imperialism" in Canadian historiography
since Carl Berger 1970's book The Sense of Power identified this as a separate ideology from
Canadian nationalism. This pamphlet is Fenety's argument against Imperial Federation and the
negative consequences of such a union or federation.

In 1920, MacAskill became a photographer for the Commercial Photo Service and by 1925 was the proprietor of this

also a commercial photographer, who may have done some work for the
Commercial Photo Service (C.P.S.). They were married in Enfield in 1926.
Later MacAskill (1893-1956) became a world renowned Nova Scotia
photographer who illustrated the romance of the sea as no one has done
before or after. His photographs have won hundreds of national and
international awards and maybe found on walls throughout the world.

Attorney-General from 1878 to1882 and was Premier briefly in 1882. When his government lost the
election in that year, he was made a Judge of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. He converted to
Roman Catholicism after marrying his wife Annie in 1870. Sir John A. Macdonald persuaded him to
enter the federal Conservative cabinet as Minister of Justice in 1885 and Thompson quickly became
Macdonald's right hand man. Although he was the logical successor when the Old Chief died in
1891, Thompson yielded to Senator J.J.C. Abbott. The next year he did take over as Prime Minister
on November 24, 1892. Although Canada was wracked by the Manitoba Schools Question, the
gracious Thompson kept his government under control and continued to win by-elections. On Dec.
12, 1894 while waiting to greet Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle, he died of a heart attack. With
the death of Thompson the Liberals under Laurier defeated the Conservatives in 1896. John
