While I was at a Canada Post kiosk the other day, I picked up their May 2014 magazine called Details with a photograph of the Empress of Ireland on the front, as shown in the picture above. The story of the sinking is on pages 12 to 14, and you should pick up this excellent pocket-sized magazine the next time you are in the post office.
The story of the Empress of Ireland is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Empress_of_Ireland
