'Evocative' Halifax Explosion markers to be installed around city
from CBC News
Twelve commemorative steel markers will be installed throughout the Halifax region to help tell the story of the Halifax Explosion. This year marks 100 years since the massive blast on Dec. 6, 1917, which was caused by the collision of a Belgian relief ship and a French munitions vessel carrying TNT through the narrowest part of Halifax harbour. The event, which killed about 2,000 people and injured 10,000 more, is described as the worst man-made disaster in Canadian history.
