Hi Santino,

I've been thinking for some time that the Fenian Raids should have a free-space page in the Canada Project. They were an important part of Ontario's history and the page could be set up by the Ontario Team. Please let me know if you'd be interested in joining the Canada Project and the Ontario Team and working on this with us.
