After a shaky start to chapter thirteen, today was a pleasant surprise. A prominent politician of the Edmonton and territory asks Daniel to become politically involved. Frank Oliver is the owner and editor of the first newspaper, The Edmonton Bulletin.

Frank is the Member of Parliament representative for the Athabaska Territory in which Edmonton is situated.

A federal election is looming, and Frank asks Daniel to drum up support for him in the new French-Canadian communities around Edmonton. Although Daniel has never been involved in politics, he agrees because he believes that Frank Oliver has the best interest of Edmonton and the surrounding region at heart.

This first scene of the chapter went well.
