The troubles in Belfast and Ulster. They are the loyalist to Queen They march thru the Catholic sections on that day and a lot of times extreme violence would break out. Same thing in Canada in certain sections, Like Toronto and the maritime provinces back around the turn and early century. If you watch Murdoch Mysteries on CBET or netflix it comes up as a story line over the seasons.

Neat. I've watched Murdoch Mysteries a few times and enjoyed it. I guess I haven't seen or don't remember the episodes related to this. I'll keep an eye the next time I watch. Thanks.

This postcard(1905) shows the arms of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, followed by the devices used by Manitoba (which differs from the granted arms by the bison running instead of standing), British Columbia (a non-armorial design; the postcard is out-of-date in that BC stopped using this device in 1896), and Prince Edward Island (which differs from the granted arms by the lack of the chief).

PEI joined as the 6th province in 1871 so it could not be earlier than that.

1890s-1905 would probably be my best dating guess on this one.

 

The Orangemen were highly active in Upper Canada / Ontario, and indeed was one of the stronger networking groups of the 19th century and into the 20th century for politics and the like.
