Storyline

Extensive documentary on the visit to Canada (with a side trip to the United States) of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth from May 17 to June 15, 1939. They arrived in Quebec city aboard the Empress of Australia and then traveled westward by train. Stops along the westward route included Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver and Victoria, B.C. The return included Vancouver, Jasper and Edmonton, Saskatoon, Sudbury and several cities in Southern Ontario. At Niagara Falls they crossed into the U.S. and visited Washington D.C. then returned to Canada visiting New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and then from Halifax departed for England aboard the Empress of Britain. The visit was a great success and in later years, Queen Elizabeth (by then known as the Queen Mother) was often noted to remark that their 1939 trip to Canada "made them". Written by garykmcd
