Douglas Day at Fort Langley National Historic Site – Nov 19, 2015


Douglas Day marks the day on November 19, 1858, when James Douglas proclaimed British Columbia a Crown Colony in Fort Langley’s Big House. This year, I’ll be part of Fort Langley National Historic Site’s annual Douglas Day celebration, from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 19th.

Enjoy wine, cheese, music and a re-enactment of the proclamation of the colony of British Columbia, plus the mainland launch of Once They Were Hats.
