Fair address: Prince Edward Island Provincial Fair

Project: La liste d'interdiction de vol Canadienne

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.

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

The most interesting thing I learned about my subject was how many people are on the list, and how it affects them.

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

An important lesson we learned was that our opinions, our involvement and our ideas are so important with this issue,and that getting involved leads to great things.

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

I think we have very little to complain about, No Fly List Kids have been fighting for a redress system for the no-fly list since 2016.
