Additional notes: Harbour pilot Francis Mackey, on board the French ship Mont Blanc at the time of the Halifax Explosion, struggled for years to have his name cleared of any wrongdoing and to have his pilot’s license re-instated. During her research, Janet Maybee discovered restricted files to which she was finally granted access, and shocking evidence of federal misdeeds came to light.
