In 1918 a mysterious illness swept the globe. The “Spanish Flu”, as the pandemic came to be known, was indiscriminate and it was ruthless. Estimates place the worldwide mortality rate between 20 million and 100 million people, including 50,000 in Canada. In Flew Enza: The Spanish Flu Comes to Alberta offers a rare opportunity to examine the pandemic 100 years later and learn more about how it impacted life in Alberta.
