Thursday November 10th 7:30 pm Lambton House (4066 Old Dundas Street) – Heritage York History Night features John Beram on “Canada and the Great War 1916.”
Thursday, November 17th (NOTE THE UNUSUAL DATE) 7:30 pm Montgomery’s Inn (4709 Dundas Street West) – The Etobicoke Historical Society presents Robert Fraser of the Dictionary of Canadian Biography. The evening, held in the Ballroom of Montgomery’s Inn instead of the tea room to be in the original venue, will take us back to the election of 1851 and the race between reformers in Etobicoke township, James Hervey Price and David Gibson. The election would pave the way for later reformers like William Pearce Howland and William McDougall, so the night will be a great introduction to the Sesquicentennial events of 2017!
