In 1926, on the beautiful coast of British Columbia, one Edward Arthur Wilson, under the better known name of Brother XII begins development of his colony Cedar-by-the-Sea on Vancouver Island, near Nanaimo. Followed by a large number of wealthy men and women, Brother Twelve would go on to establish an infamous Cult on Vancouver Island. With the goal of creating a self-sufficient community and to have all the answers to save humanity from its current wretched form, Brother Twelve represents one of Canada’s most infamous cult leaders, with plot twists and turns abound! This week, the Canada 150 Project explores the life and times of Brother Twelve.
