2017 Guided Spirit Walks - One Dominion

“One Dominion: On the Path to Confederation”

In honour of Canada150, the 2017 Guided Spirit Walks at Victoria Lawn Cemetery will tell the story of Confederation in St. Catharines through multiple voices and perspectives. We will hear from those who supported the idea of One Dominion, like Sir. James Rae Benson, St. Catharines’ only appointed Senator. We will also hear from those who had other feelings towards Confederation, like anti-Confederation proponent Lieutenant Colonel James G. Currie.

The story of Confederation in St. Catharines can be told by multiple voices and perspectives, exposing that the path to building One Dominion was much bumpier than we are taught to believe in history class.
