What’s New…

Oct 2022…Currently ‘constructing’ a BLOG about the Federal Warning Centre in the Diefenbunker Museum.

27 Sept 2022… Added some interesting Continuity of (Constitution) Government discussion documents (recently found on-line) to the bottom of the Continuity of Government page. Some are pertinent to the current world threat with regard to the use of nuclear weapons.

23 Sept 2022… Replaced the crude notes on the history of the origins of the bunker as a museum with a much more comprehensive and complete piece by Connie Higginson-Murray.

22 Sept 2022… Added some other Canadian Cold War Museum’s web locations and a old photo of a briefing in the EmGovSitCen to the Introduction section.

27 July 2022…Created this new main menu item What’s New (which will inform viewers of the latest changes to the website.)

26 July 2022…Added a link to the Diefenbunker Museum website (specifically because of the Virtual Tours section – so that viewers can see many of the displays and exhibits that are (for some inexplicable reason) currently closed to the public).

24 July 2022…After a hiatus of a couple of weeks (due to my accidentally messing up the website) I’ve reorganized and added to the bunker construction photos in the Images and Videos section.

05 July 2022 … Revised Nanaimo REGHQ construction photos and descriptions. Also added a series of photos taken during a Diefenbunker Museum volunteers day trip to the REGHQ Valcartier in March 2002. The Contact Dave form page has been removed due to large number of spam messages being posted. It will soon be replaced by a more secure and user friendly method of contacting me.

04 July 2022 … Added Sept 11, 1961 Toronto Telegram article ‘revealing’ the construction of the ‘Diefenbunker’ or as it was originally designated Project E.A.S.E for Experimental Army Signals Establishment (in a failed attempt to conceal its actual purpose) … Added Early Cold War Cartoon satirizing the Mutually Assured Destruction ‘doctrine’ to the Overview (below).

02-03 July 2022 … Consolidated in a separate section, a new page in the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum drop down menu which is devoted to the History of the Founding and Early Development of the Museum.
