Books Info:

The Honourable Aleck free pdf The Honourable Aleck is the true story of the life and times of Alexander Rocke Robertson and Margaret Bruce Eberts, Aleck's beloved wife 'Maggie'. Born and raised in Chatham, Upper Canada, 'Aleck' Robertson came to British Columbia in 1864 as a young lawyer, and became one of BC's most eminent citizens. Well-known and highly respected in BC's courtrooms, he was also Mayor of Victoria, a member of BC's first provincial Cabinet, and BC's first Canadian-born Supreme Court Judge, all before his untimely death at the age of 40. The combining of the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia, and then confederation with Canada, give a dramatic backdrop to the story. Aleck's passionate correspondence with Maggie throughout their lives, and their warm and loving family life with their many sons in early Victoria, show the human side of those turbulent times in early BC.
