Inventing Canada: Early Victorian Science and the Idea of a Transcontinental Nation
Abstract
A study of the changing attitudes of Victorian Canadians towards the natural sciences, as seen through their attitude towards the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). English-speaking Quebecers played a prominent role in organizing and supporting the geological study of Canada when it was founded in 1842. The GSC was originally based in Montreal before being moved to Ottawa in 1881.
