We have a duty to cover every Heritage Minute on this podcast, including seemingly boring ones about Old Age Pensions. This week, Grace and Linnea dive into the life of leftist politician J. S. Woodsworth and his groundbreaking contributions to Canada's social security system. Turns out, it isn't so boring after all!

What is Minute Women?
Minute Women is your weekly dose of Canadian history and corny 90s nostalgia. We are best friends Grace McNutt and Linnea Swinimer and we are on a mission to tell the untold stories behind the iconic Canadian Heritage Minutes. Along the way, we uncover the funny, weird, and downright terrifying stories left out of Canada’s national history.
Did you know John A. Macdonald's younger brother was murdered in a freak gin incident? Or that Sandford Fleming was going to call standard time "cosmic time"? Or that Governor Frontenac was a legendary jerk?
Well, neither did we! Join us to learn more! A not-so-proud part of our national heritage.
