Minute Women

Minute Women is your weekly dose of Canadian history and corny 90s nostalgia. We are best friends Grace McNutt and Linnea Swinimer and we are on a mission to tell the untold stories behind the iconic Canadian Heritage Minutes. Along the way, we uncover the funny, weird, and downright terrifying stories left out of Canada’s national history. Did you know John A. Macdonald's younger brother was murdered in a freak gin incident? Or that Sandford Fleming was going to call standard time "cosmic time"? Or that Governor Frontenac was a legendary jerk? Well, neither did we! Join us to learn more! A not-so-proud part of our national heritage.
