Yesterday one of our greatest Canadians passed away at age 84. Burton was a profious author, writing 50 books. He was a Canadian who loved to write about Canadian history and probably more than any other author, got Canadians interested in the history of their country.

He was raised in the Yukon and wrote books about the north, but he is better know for The Last Spike and The National Dream.

At the time of his passing he was 84 and had been married for 60 years.

A great Canadian who is going to be missed.
