Canada’s History

canadashistory kayakhistoryLet’s talk about Canada today, because we all know who we’ll be discussing everywhere today. Canada is celebrating it’s 150th birthday this year, so we’re interested in finding out more about our country’s interesting past. And what better way to do it than read about it in a glossy magazine?

This month, “Canada’s History” magazine has an interesting read about 100 years of our nation’s favourite game, hockey! You can also find a fascinating article about the Gold Rush, and some newly discovered journals that will shed some light on the struggles fortune-seekers endured. And how about a first peek at the Canada 150 official tulip! It’s beautiful. You can read all of these stories, as well as back issues, just by visiting our website!

And not to leave out the kids, ‘Kayak’ is looking at our funny past–and present! A whole issue devoted to comedians, comedy specials, and more, with fantastically fun illustrations!
