Legacy Canoe going to Parliament Hill

1867 - 2017 Legacy Canoe

The treasured 1867-2017 Legacy Canoe is going to Ottawa to Parliament Hill after the fall session of Parliament resumes. We are very proud of the work that went into this Canoe, the values that it represents and the relationships and skills that were developed because of the Canoe. We are really glad that this work, values and relationships are recognized. Taking a project to Parliament Hill is a first for Broad Reach – we look forward to that event and will post updates as they present.

Steam and Planking!

The physical work of building the canoe was completed by the teen members of The Canadian Association for Girls in Science, while the artistic work on the design and painting of the hull was created by students from The Etobicoke School of the Arts.

Upon completion, the Legacy Canoe was blessed by Whabagoon Flower Blooms in Spring, Patti Phipps Walker, an Ojibway Elder.

We thank Pam Danoff, M.P., Oakville North-Burlington, for facilitating the display of the 1867-2017 Legacy Canoe in Ottawa. pdamoff.liberal.ca
