Pacific Railway and the Patriotic Fund (5 November 1914)

On 5 November, the Hespeler Herald reported on the successful Patriotic Fund event hosted by the Pacific Railway Company (P.R.C). The organization donated one full day’s worth of pay from each employee, from all the provinces, which raised a total of $142,000 for the Patriotic Fund. The P.R.C. hoped to set an example for other companies in Canada. In Berlin it was already common practice to donate to in one’s place of work as part of collective donations.
