In 1918, as the First World War began to come to an end, a new threat arrived on the shores of Canada.
It was the Spanish Flu and by the time it burned through the country in 1919, it had killed 55,000 people in the country. From homesteads left empty by entire families losing the battle to the flu, to the cancellation of the Stanley Cup, it was a terrible time for the country.
I look at how that flu impacted Canada, from regular citizens to the government itself.
