Thread Name: happy? – Dec 6 (Halifax Explosion)
Subject: RE: happy? – Dec 6 (Halifax Explosion)
Actually, it was closer to two thousand and hundreds were blinded by flying glass and thousands more were seriously wounded. It was the largest man made explosion until hiroshima and the worst disaster in Canadian history, yet outside of Halifax, very few people in Canada are aware that this event happened. Too bad no one has written a decent song about it.
