The Daily Colonist, February 1-5, 1915

#dailycolonist1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

Excluding the news of a Zeppelin attack on London, it is impossible to look at the events of this week outside of the context of the tyrannical fear-mongering of the Harper government and bill C-51. It can be plainly seen by these articles from a century ago that things are not any more or less dangerous and all that is happening is a profound step backwards toward a time when people, like my great-grandparents, were forced to register with the police and report regularly on the threat of being packed away to forced labour camps simply for the crime of having been born in the wrong country.
