On this day in Canada in 1919, Marxism was at its finest as the Canadian government established Canadian National Railways (CNR), in order to unite and rescue five near-bankrupt railroads: the Grand Trunk, Grand Trunk Pacific, Canadian Northern, Intercolonial, and Canadian Government Railways [National Transcontinental]. With the resulting CNR system becoming the longest in North America at the time, with over 50,000 kilometers of track in the U.S. and Canada. Also, on this day in Canada in 1991, the NHL re-established the Ottawa Senators and established the Tampa Bay Lightning franchises during the second to last expansion of the league in the 20th century.
