Our history: April 8, 1971

Our April 8, 1971 issue featured coverage of the 65th Brandon Winter Fair, the first under its new “Royal” designation. A nationwide rail strike had been averted when The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers signed a new contract with a 24.8 per cent wage increase over three years. In the previous issue, we had reported that Lakehead grain handlers had signed a two-year contract with a 21 per cent increase.
