The Canadian no-fly list is a list that contains the names of terrorists not permitted to fly. The list contains only names, which means that innocent people get flagged at airports if their name matches that of someone on the list. The list is also a vioation of the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms, specifically section 6 and 15. We reached out to 4 people from No Fly List Kids for information on the subject.

Tamika - Charlo, New Brunswick

This project is a glimpse into some of the traditions and ceremonies of the Mi'gmaq people. These traditions are being shared with Native and Non-native people alike to honour and respect our culture into the 21st century. I was fortunate to have visited the Metepenagiag (Red Bank, NB) Heritage Park, the Ugpi'ganjig (Eel River Bar) Pow Wow grounds and interview members of the community of Listuguj.

Valerie - Bridgewater, Nova Scotia

My project is about the poor treatment the Chinese railway workers on the Canadian Pacific Railway received. They were discriminated and underpaid from 1881-1885 in British Columbia. They were not being recognized for their hard work until 2006, when there was an official apology on behalf of the federal government.

Xavy - St. Catharines, Ontario

Albert Johnson started the largest manhunt in Canadian History. This manhunt lasted 48 days in extremely harsh climate and it is truly amazing that Johnson survived as long as he did. Johnson escaped the Mounties and their posse many times and it is still a mystery of who Johnson really was. Even though the manhunt took place in the Northwest Territories, it still affected media across the country. Many people were following the hunt on their radios at the time, and it was a common thing to talk about between neighbours.

Yelena - Vancouver, British Columbia

My project is about a brave woman who was in a situation where there was racism and all hope was lost. The name of the woman is Viola Desmond.
