I thought given the recent opening of the exhibit on Mary Riter Hamilton's artwork of the battlefields that it was a good time to also recommend this excellent biography of Hamilton, No Man's Land, by Sarah McKinnon and Kathryn Young. A great read!

2/5 : "...not just here in Canada where it dates to the last century, but in many other countries as well. It works by ensuring that only those who actually require guns for legitimate purposes can attain them."

This is an extremely useful resource for Canadian historians, especially those with research blogs. Props to Andrea and her fantastic site. That said, I remain frustrated by what seems like a lack of online photographs of Canadian politicians from the postwar period.
