Project: Titanic: The Canadian Story

Canada's connection to the Titanic tragedy. Rescue efforts and passengers.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I thought it was interesting to learn various details about the life of the Canadian passengers.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

1) Canadians are always there to help, even in challenging circumstances. 2) Man can sometimes be too confident and be careless, putting the lives of others at risk.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Because of this event, safety today is much better. We have sufficient number of lifeboats, iceberg patrols, powerful radios, etc.

    Wonderfully informative and well presented. I hope you win the first prize and get to go to Ottawa. If you ever get to Ireland you must check out the Titanic Museum in Belfast. It's amazing. Also there is a smaller exhibit in Cork Ireland, the last place the Titanic stopped to pick up passengers before making it's fateful trip across the Atlantic Ocean.
