NOTE: This chronology was begun in 2006 under the supervision of Professor C.D. Zimmerman at York University. It was researched by graduate students Denise Handlarski, Sean Kennedy and Akosua Oppong with additions by Joy Coghill and Susan McNicoll. If it was not for the generosity and determination of Cyndi Zimmerman and the thoroughness of her graduate students, this chronology would never have seen the light of day. Thank you.
