On July 1, 1867, four British colonies – Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, joined in a federation called Canada, a British dominion with a large degree of home rule.

Art Johnson spent 40 years teaching US and Canadian history, first as a professor at the University of Maine and then at SUNY Potsdam. His interest in history, and in Canadian history in particular, has remained high since his retirement. In fall 2013, Art received the “Leon LeBeau SOARing Educator Award” in recognition of the many outstanding courses he has taught for SOAR.
