When a Bad Wind Blows: 10 Tragic Events in the History of Prince Rupert

BySue Harper

10 tragic events in the history of Prince Rupert, British Columbia Canada. Prince Rupert was incorporated as a City on March 10th, 1910. For almost 100 years, it has been through the vicissitudes of development, decline, and re-emergence as a bustling community on the north coast of British Columbia. Maybe it is the location, or maybe the weather that has attracted a variety of people to the area. Either way, it has resulted in a rich history full of calamitous events. Some man made, many the act of nature, but all interesting in their own right. Revisiting these tragic events from Prince Rupert’s past is a way of gaining a deeper understanding of the city, and the many hardships that its residents have had to endure at the “grass roots” (or should I say muskeg) level.
