Canada 150: The lost ‘Golden Age’ of Canada’s East Coast

A house built in 1867 by shipbuilder John Ferguson, and a sign of prosperous times, is seen in Pictou, N.S. on Friday, May 12, 2017. The region was booming in the mid-1800's but for some on the East Coast, the start of the region's decline can be traced to a specific day almost 150 years ago: July 1, 1867, Dominion Day.
