Canada's Transcontinental Railway
One hundred years ago,
Canada's first transcontinental train steamed into Vancouver at the end of its 3,000-mile journey across some of the most rugged and beautiful scenery in the world. That first train, which was only 15 minutes late at the end of its five-and-a-half-day journey, marked not only a magnificent feat of engineering but also a turning point in Canadian history. In short, it bound the new diverse provinces into federation.

by Maurice Keens Soper
A dramatised account of the impeachment of Warren Hastings, ex-Governor-General of Bengal, before the House of Lords. An ordeal that lasted over 149 days from February 1788 to April 1795.
"In England the state is embodied in its laws; in India it is embodied in men. The whole history of Asia proves the invariable exercise of arbitrary power." (WARREN HASTINGS)
"Those who give and those who receive arbitrary power are alike criminal. It is a contradiction in terms, it is blasphemy in religion, it is wickedness in politics." (EDMUND BURKE)
