Disaster Canada by Janet Looker
This is an excllent account of some of the major disasters that have happened in Canada.It not only covers many of the biggest disasters,but many of the smaller ones as well.It no means covers all the disasters that have happened over Canada's relatively short history.Just the disasters and loss of lives on the oceans along Canada's coastlines would fill volumes,let alone those on the Great Lakes.

This is the original recording at San Quentin that was recorded live at the prison in 1969 and has been re- issued with additional sosgs.It is one of the most famous and best loved albums in Country Music.Even though it was done over 40 years ago,it still ranks up there with the best of Country albums.
I am not going into a lot of detail about this recording;but only wish to say that it still sends chills up my spine each time I play it.This album has 37, 5 * ratings,most of them written a long time ago;but the surprising thing is that so many of them have recieved no votes either helpful or otherwise.After reading the reviews,I felt that about all that could be said has already been… Read more
