CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Demise * 3 Films * 4 References * 5 External links HISTORYDuring this time the future province was still part of Rupert\'s Land , a territory owned by the Hudson\'s Bay Company . It was soon to become a part of the Northwest Territories when Canada purchased Rupert's Land from "the Bay" in 1869.

Book
A BOOK is a series of pages assembled for easy portability and reading, as well as the composition contained in it. The most common modern form of book is a codex volume consisting of rectangular paper pages bound on one side, with a heavier cover and spine, so that it can fan open for reading. Books have taken other forms, such as scrolls , leaves on a string, or strips tied together; and the pages have been of parchment , vellum , papyrus , bamboo slips , palm leaves , silk , wood , and other materials. The contents of books are also called books, as are other compositions of that length. For instance, Aristotle

's Physics , the constituent sections of the Bible , and even the Egyptian Book

of the Dead are called books independently of their physical form. Conversely, some long literary compositions are divided into books of varying sizes , which typically do not correspond to physically bound units

Separate Schools
In Canada, a SEPARATE SCHOOL is a type of school that has constitutional status in three provinces (Ontario , Alberta and Saskatchewan ) and statutory status in three territories (Northwest Territories , Yukon and Nunavut ). In these Canadian jurisdictions, a separate school is one operated by a civil authority — a separate school board — with a mandate enshrined in the Canadian Constitution (for the three provinces) or in federal statutes (for the three territories). In these six jurisdictions a civil electorate , composed of the members of the minority faith , elects separate school trustees according to the province's or territory's local authorities election legislation. These trustees are legally accountable to their electorate and to the provincial or territorial government. No church has a constitutional , legal, or proprietary interest in a separate school
