        The book explains, in part, why a printed piece can be so powerful in building a brand. So the question should no longer be should print play a role in your overall marketing, but what role it should play and whether it is best for your business to conduct its printing in-house or rely on outsourced printing for your direct marketing.   Many books and articles have been written on nineteenth-century agriculture in Upper Canada, but Catharine Anne Wilson has approached the subject in an innovative way. Here the author examines the experiences of tenants, the one-quarter to one-half of the rural population who rented and farmed land, in this time and place.

        Though the record of the 'Deeds that won the Empire' may now be considered closed, Britain has still a great work in front of her—the work of Imperial organization, consolidation, and, if possible, federation. To ridicule this aspiration, and to pronounce it unrealizable, on the ground that the achievement would be altogether without historic parallel, is a cheap and easy form of selfishness.   Most of the settlers in North Dufferin had a long farming tradition. Over half of the population of Elm River were Metis and although the Metis had some experience farming before , they also relied on hunting, trading, and freighting and may not have been as focussed on farming as the Ontario settlers.
