On a tragic day in December 1917, two boats collided in Halifax Harbour. One of them caught fire and then exploded with a massive bang. It was the largest man-made explosion ever experienced to that point. Buildings and homes in Halifax and nearby Dartmouth were instantly destroyed. Windows were shattered up to 100 kilometres away. At least 1,900 people lost their lives that day.
