Labrador is a region of Atlantic Canada. Together with the island of Newfoundland from which it is separated by the Strait of Belle Isle, it constitutes the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The region is part of the much larger Labrador Peninsula on the Canadian mainland. Newfoundland and Labrador became part of Canada in 1949, after having been a separate Dominion of the British Empire.

Labrador in Southern Victory[]

Throughout most of the Great War, Labrador was outside the range of the United States Army. The United Kingdom shipped supplies through Labrador after the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River fell under U.S. control. After the war, it along with the rest of Newfoundland was ceded to the United States.

During the Second Great War, the U.S. established weather stations in Labrador to improve forecasting in the North Atlantic. Britain did likewise with clandestine stations in isolated areas. Military garrisons guarding these stations frequently engaged in small skirmishes.

Labrador in Supervolcano[]

As a result of the eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, the Gulf Stream cooled down and, in turn, led to less warm water going out into the Atlantic which would make northwestern Europe much colder

[1] . Over the next few years, this seemed to come to pass as the winters in Britain became harsher and harsher. It was often remarked that the U.K. was on the same latitude as Labrador and the weather began to match.
