When people think of Terrace's history the word “mutiny” is likely not top of mind. Yet during the Second World War the soldiers of the 15th Brigade were part of one of the most serious breaches of discipline in the history of the Canadian military. Word leaked out that Prime Minister Mackenzie King had decided to enforce conscription and so a demonstration in our city streets ensued. More details on the famous mutiny can be found at Heritage Park Museum along with many other interesting stories from Terrace’s past.
