Bob the Postman The Jarrow March (82* d) RE: Folklore: I have to ask the Brits-The Jarrow March 06 Nov 12


Many Canadians have heard of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and some of them might remember that plucky British tars scaled the cliffs to prepare the way for the soldiers. A closer historical parallel to the Jarrow march would be the On To Ottawa Trek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On-to-Ottawa_Trek ), culminating in the Regina Police Riot. This episode is much less famous than the Plains of Abraham set-to, although it is regularly included in catalogues of Canadian infamy along with the extinction of the Beothuk, the internment of Japanese Canadians, the head tax on Chinese immigrants, the Komagatu Maru incident, the High Arctic resettlement project, and so forth.
