Till We Meet Again is the story of Canada's worst marine disaster, the sinking of the Empress of Ireland. Here is the story told in graphic detail and containing many personal accounts, pictures and details of the official inquiry.

In the dead of night, the beautiful Empress of Ireland, the last word in luxury ocean-going liners, sank into the icy waters of the St. Lawrence River, snuffing out the lives of over a thousand souls.

In the early hours of May 29, in the year of 1914, fog enveloped the two ships when the coal-laden Storstad rammed into the side of the Empress, giving her captain only fourteen precious minutes to save his passengers and crew. Most of them perished.
