    I don’t know who our first MP was, but I’ve got another piece of trivia related to this subject. 50 years ago the MP for what was then the riding of Antigonish – Guysborough was Clement “Clem” O’Leary who grew up in Lochaber, and later on was appointed to the Canadian Senate. If you want to learn more about Clem O’Leary, Google will point you to quite a few sites.

    I think I found some info. on the Joseph Howe Triva:

    It was published in Montreal in 1874 by John Loveel at 24-25 St. Nicholas St.

    Great idea this trivia.
