Abrielle (Abby) - Vancouver, British Columbia

My project is on how Canadian society is strengthened by different communities and the important strategy to study a historical community developing despite facing discrimination and racism. In particular with the recent arrival of Syrian refugees, we can learn how to support this new developing community; we can welcome new Canadians so that the whole country can grow in “gaman”.

J'ai découvert qu'autrefois, sur les îles près de chez moi,se situait probablement le fort Français oublié des livres d'histoire, nommé "Gédaïque".  C'était un fort militaire français construit en 1749 qui servait à recevoir les bateaux venant de France et de Québec pour ravitailler les forts voisins.

Amy - Victoria, British Columbia

My project is on the S.S. Moyie, the last operating passenger sternwheeler in North America.  I studied the history of this ship, the way she was built, her crew, what she did and where she sailed. I also took a look at where she is today.
