The Daily Colonist, March 9-19, 1915

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

I've been busy with some other projects so while I try to keep things under a week at a time, this update covers 10 days. In general the war in Europe is unchanged on both fronts. The first Canadian contingent is in combat and there are stories from the front. A combined Anglo-French fleet is making its way up the Dardanelles toward Constantinople (Istanbul). The Mexican civil war is still going without any big news.

One article this week is particularly interesting from today's context: a story on an "Armed Secret Society of Foreigners" operating in Ontario.

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.
