Update on Begbie Contest Society website

Over the last year the Begbie Contest Society website has been redeveloped to provide an extensive collection of Canadian primary sources. We have added fourteen new short essay topics, 75 new multiple choice questions and an article on philosophies of history. New themes and new primary sources will appear from time to time.

Unlike most published collections, the site focuses primarily on visual primary sources, especially political cartoons. Images are organized by theme, and can be copied and transferred to PowerPoint presentations for educational use. Please visit our updated website at and let us know what you think.
