Illustrated talk on the Halifax Explosion

Mainland South Heritage Society is pleased to have Janet Maybee as guest speaker at our Annual General Meeting.
Janet will give an illustrated talk entitled “The Persecution of Pilot Mackey”.  All welcome.
When: Thursday, May 30.
Meeting at 6:30 pm, speaker at 7 PM.
Where: Captain William Spry Community Centre, 16 Sussex Street, Spryfield
Contact: Iris at ishea@eastlink.ca.
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.
