What's New on Electric Canadian
Here I'm listing anything new added to the site over the past week or so. As my main work is on the Electric Scotland site I do need to focus entirely on that site so content will be added here as I get the time.

The page below was added as a result of an over sight on my part as I'd obviously completed a book about Joseph Howe but had not prepared the page for you to access it which has now been fixed. That said I thought I'd better check that all the other pages were ok and they are but I have also added a 2 volume pdf book on the Memoirs of John A MacDonald.  This is partly because as you read the Preface to his book you'll see they recommended this set for additional reading.
Added Joseph Howe by Hon. J. W. Longley (1909). A maker of Canada.
Added Some pictures from Joan Morris where she took a family holiday in Nova Scotia in 2014.
