Pointe-au-Pére Lighthouse, Quebec On May 29, 1914, the Empress of Ireland collided with the Norwegian coal Carrier Storstad. The Empress sank in fourteen minutes. 1012 people perished. More horrific than the Titanic, this tragedy, eclipsed by the announcement of the Second World War, is told by the last living survivor. HistoryLands gives the audience a look at North America's most devastating nautical disaster.
