Let your mind loose to spiral this way and that as you consider how you’d like to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
The anniversary, in 2017, is “an opportunity for all Canadians to celebrate our shared history and values, which have helped us forge the greatest country in the world,” said MP Earl Dreeshen. “We have a strong historical knowledge in our region and I look forward to hearing from individuals and organizations on what they view as the key aspects that have shaped our lives.”
Dreeshen plans to host a consultation with museums, historical associations and municipalities next month. It will be part of a network of roundtable discussions that are taking place across Canada in coming months.
“We want a celebration that reflects who we are as Canadians, where we came from, and what we can give back,” he said. “Canada 150 will be an occasion to build and strengthen the nation and to engage Canadians in shaping our future.”
Constituents interested in shaping the 150th anniversary celebrations are encouraged to send ideas to Dreeshen at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete an online questionnaire at http://canada150.gc.ca/.
