Heritage Trails

David and Susan Flowers were raised in the north of England and taught school near Manchester where the local population equalled that of the whole of Alberta.  They came to Schuler, Alberta in 1966 after responding to an ad in The Times Educational Supplement.  Here we would like to share with you their story through an article that first appeared in Legacy Magazine. The article recounts their arrival and years in Schuler, where they became, in their own words, "Canadianized."

From CKUA Radio Network's Heritage Trails series, Cheryl Croucher speaks with historian David Leonard about the establishment of the Barr Colony at present-day Lloydminster.  

In Part 1, hear how the Canadian government launched an aggressive campaign to populate the prairies with British sympathizers.

In Part 2, find out how George Lloyd and Isaac Barr recruited almost 2000 British immigrants to settle the area near present-day Lloydminster.
