On April 7, 1868, Canada’s Prophet of Confederation was murdered on his way home from Parliament. It was Canada’s first ever political assassination. The man charged with the crime was one of the last people ever to be publicly hung in the country—but was he the man who shot D’Arcy McGee? Investigate Canada’s most notorious cold-case by revisiting a time of nationalism, terrorism, and intrigue on the streets of Ottawa.
