A copy of a yearbook in my possession, owned by my father's infirm cousin.   I previously uploaded the 1969-70 MHHS yearbook, which can be found here: https://archive.org/details/medicine-hat-high-school-1969-70-yearbook The 1971-72 edition has an almost identical cover to the 69-70, but the inside is somewhat different.  The beginning and ending pages are made of a blaze-orange textured paper that was rather interesting.  I also had an easier time with the inner margins, as the...

"The government wants the power to regulate the internet. It wants to make it easier or harder for you to find content based on whether the government views the content as Canadian. The government says it will use the new powers it seek through Bill C-11 to make sure Canadian content shows up more prominently, but allowing the government to filter what we see and share online could be a dangerous gateway to government censorship. Through Bill C-11, the government proposes to give these new...

I inheritted this copy of a MHHS yearbook from my father's infirm cousin. Unfortunately, some of the photos and didactics were put quite close to the inner margins of the book, and thus I could not get as clear a photocopy of some pages without pressing the binding to the point of damaging it. Note the conservative dress the girls' sports teams are decked out in, compared to that of their late 20th/early 21st century equivalents. P.S.: Brenda Kaiser won my heart. X)
