Supreme Court Comes To Grande Prairie

This Week in History has us looking at court cases in 1915 the Supreme Court had it’s first sitting in Grande Prairie.
The cases on the docket were a shooting, defamation libel and suing for damages.
I think the most surprising case is the shooting case. After confessing to having shot his neighbor the defendant got off with time served and a warning!
