HOW THE WEST WAS...

The theme this year is "How the West was..." and the three dots are very important. After we chose the theme for this year we then proceeded to discuss it to death. Our compromise is to make it as broad a subject as possible.

What was the settlement of the Canadian West really like??? Or has our view of our history been overtaken by Hollywood images?? Our starting point was the settlement of Canada, west of Ontario -- from the first settlers on the prairies with all their worldly goods in wagons until the first train wound its way across the prairies and through the Rocky Mountains --- followed by the mad rush for the gold of the Yukon.

However we are open to your interpretation of " How the West was..."
