I recently read a summary of the ‘History of Whitehorse’ posted on a very expensive sign at Rotary Park. A brief mention of the Alaska Highway was given with no mention of the Canol Project nor the war with Japan in the Aleutians.
Big oversight! Both projects were the reason why Whitehorse developed so rapidly to become, in a little over a decade, the capital of the Yukon.
Who writes this stuff anyway?
