 Boundary Waters Treaty   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
The Boundary Waters Treaty, 11 January 1909, between Canada and the US, resulted from a need to settle and prevent disputes regarding the uses and apportionment of waters along the international boundary.
Negotiated for Canada mainly by George C. Gibbons, the treaty also prohibited the diversion of these waters without the commission's approval, proclaimed certain general principles of boundary water resource development, and called for an end to cross-boundary pollution.
It failed, however, to impose sanctions against polluters or to prevent the diversion or damming of waters crossing the boundary.

 Canada/US Relations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Canada has always been aware that its existence has to depend on something else than sheer power; and so internally and externally it has attempted to give itself to the virtues of conciliation, compromise, pluralism, and acceptance of difference.
The shift in Canada is partly a result of US control of large segments of the Canadian economy, of pressures under the free trade agreements to merge the two social cultures, and a general move in the Western world towards greater reliance on market forces for the production and distribution of wealth.
In Canada, the tendency to mirror, echo, or extend developments in the USA is increasingly a characteristic of the society.

 Model 1909 Argentine Mauser
Although I've shot the 1909 Argentine extensively through the years, it's been used for nothing more exotic than putting holes in paper or busting dirt clods--but what a dream to shoot.
As full-length Model 1909 Argentine Mausers go, this particular specimen is typical of those imported during the 1950s, complete with the Argentine crest ground off the top of the receiver ring.
Sights on the 1909 Argentine are classic Mauser tangent propositions with an inverted-"V" front post and a "V"-notched rear sight that is calibrated to a "harassing fire" range of 2,000 meters, with a bottom setting for a 300-meter battle sight.

After further tests by his collaborators in England, an intensive series of trials was conducted in 1923 between experimental installations at the Poldhu Station and in Marconi's yacht "Elettra" cruising in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, and this led to the establishment of the beam system for long distance communication.
Two years later at Sestri Levante he demonstrated his microwave radio beacon for ship navigation and in 1935, again in Italy, gave a practical demonstration of the principles of radar, the coming of which he had first foretold in a lecture to the American Institute of Radio Engineers in New York in 1922.
He was decorated by the Tsar of Russia with the Order of St. Anne, the King of Italy created him Commander of the Order of St. Maurice and St. Lazarus, and awarded him the Grand Cross of the Order of the Crown of Italy in 1902.

We have had the luxury of pondering these issues at length because of good fortune in geography and alliance with the world's leading sea powers, Britain and then the United States.
Until recently, published literature has largely focused on RCN participation in the Battle of the Atlantic during the period 1939-1943, and all but ignored the major contribution of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) to maritime defence.
The present paper explores the influence of submarine warfare on the development of the Canadian forces prior to 1939, the impact of earlier experience on Canadian participation in the Second World War, and in turn how the course of that conflict shaped Canada's maritime forces in the post-war era.

The 1909 Lincoln Cent is one of the most famous coins in American history.
Not only is it a classic first-year-of-issue coin, but when it first came out it caused a nationwide scandal.
While it may seem like a petty argument these days, in 1909 it was so scandalous that the U.S. Mint was forced to remove the initials after only about 1/4 of the first year’s coins had been struck — a decision that created a scarce, one-time-only “V.D.B.” variety.
