Today, Canada's Great War launches on all podcast platforms. Enjoy this first episode of the show and please considering subscribing if you enjoy it!

When Britain declared war on Germany, Canada was at war automatically. No one in Canada was complaining, as governments, businesses and citizens mobilized for the war they thought would be over by Christmas. 

Today, I look at that initial mobilization effort by the country.

She was called America's Sweetheart, but Mary Pickford always considered herself to be a Canadian. During the height of the silent film era, only Charlie Chaplin exceeded her worldwide fame. 

While she would become a recluse later in life, her career set the stage for countless who followed.

Considered the greatest land geographer who ever lived, and my favourite Canadian historical figure, David Thompson started life on a bad note, and ended it on a sad note, but in between he mapped 1/5th of North America. 

This is his story.
