SWEET RELEASE

A CANADIAN CANDY COMPANY ISSUED THE MOST HISTORIC, AND MOST CONTROVERSIAL, HOCKEY CARD SET OF ALL-TIME.

Parliamentary historians remember William Paterson well. The Hamilton, Ontario native was first elected to Canada’s House of Common in 1872 and, outside of a two-month span in 1896 (during which he was defeated in his own riding before winning a by-election in another), he served continuously until 1911. It was an impressive run of public service, highlighted by 15 years spent as the country’s Minister of Customs.

But Paterson wasn’t wholly devoted to governance. When he wasn’t managing duties and tariffs, he oversaw a company that created delicious biscuits and chocolates under the banner William Paterson Ltd.

Although his products were good, his timing wasn’t. Confectionery production boomed in Canada in the early 1900s with the establishment of several major (and still familiar) companies including William Neilson Ltd. in 1908, Willard’s Chocolates Ltd. in 1914, and both Fry- Cadbury Ltd. and Walter M. Lowney Co. in 1920. There was also the similarly named Patterson Chocolate Company of Toronto, which produced such treats as the COO-COO-Noodle, the Wildfire and the Patricia chocolate bars.
