1905 – Irish nationalist Arthur Griffith founds Sinn Féin as a political party with the main aim of establishing a dual monarchy in Ireland.
Sinn Féin (“We Ourselves”, often mistranslated as “Ourselves Alone”) is the name of an Irish political party founded in 1905 by Arthur Griffith. It subsequently became a focus for various forms of Irish nationalism, especially Irish republicanism. Its splits during the Irish Civil War in 1922 and again at the beginning of the Troubles in 1969 had dramatic effects on politics in Ireland. Sinn Féin today is a republican, left-wing and secular party.

1959 – Nancy Charest, Canadian lawyer and politician (d. 2014)
Nancy Charest (November 28, 1959 – March 1, 2014) was a Canadian politician. She represented the electoral district of Matane in the National Assembly of Quebec from 2003 to 2007 as a member of the Quebec Liberal Party. She was defeated by Pascal Bérubé of the Parti Québécois in the 2007 provincial election.

She ran as the Liberal Party of Canada’s candidate for the district of Haute-Gaspésie—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia in the 2008 federal election. She lost to Bloc Québécois incumbent Jean-Yves Roy, but received the highest vote percentage of any non-winning Liberal candidate in the province outside of the Montreal area.[citation needed]

Charest was found dead on March 1, 2014 along a road in her native Matane, Quebec. The cause of death was hypothermia, caused by exposure while Charest was heavily intoxicated.[1] She was 54 years old.[2][3]

“I’m trying to keep people healthy so they’re not in our emergency room,” Rau told Yu. “It costs me maybe $100, $110 to see somebody in our rural health clinic – that’s my cost. But if they come into my emergency room, it’s going to cost me a lot more than that.”
