As with Nellie McClung (1873-1951), I was a bit surprised to see that E. Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) did not appear a little earlier on in Stephen Hume’s list of 150 profiles of “noteworthy British Columbians.” I think that is because Agnes Deans Cameron (1863-1912)—who I consider an amazing adventurous woman, but nowhere near as culturally or politically important as E. Pauline Johnson or Nellie McClung—appeared on the third day. This does suggest that while the selection of names is not random, the dates of publication might be. (1 February 2017: A2)
