Irma LeVasseur was the first French-Canadian female doctor and we owe all of Quebec's women's success to her. She had many challenges through out her life and achieved so much. But at the end, she did have some regrets. Irma LeVasseur was a great French-Canadian and she did not deserve what she got at the end of her life time.

The Edmonton Grads was a women’s championship basketball team that played from 1915-1940. They are called the Grads because after they graduated from grade 12 they asked their coach to keep coaching them, because they loved the game so much! During their 25 years as a team they won 95% of their matches, often defeating their opponents by a lot. They were champions for 25 years and their record of 502 and only 20 losses is unmatched in all of sport!

My project explores how the Vietnamese Boat People are part of Canada's heritage. Both my mom's family and dad's family were Boat People and came to Canada as refugees. The story of how my mom's family came to Canada inspired a Canadian Heritage Minute.

Canada accepted over 100 000 Vietnamese refugees after the Vietnam war who are now all proud Canadians. How Canada helped the Vietnamese Boat People reflects what our country is best known for - our kindness!
