Canada is a very young Country which means our history isn’t just found in museums, it’s found in the oral stories...there is a story that my dad tells that he heard from an elder where in the story it’s referencing the movement of the glaciers, so that is history contained there and so I would think that it is of all interest to all Canadians to have a deeper understanding of this land that we are all on. What a beautiful thing to learn about, and what a beautiful thing to preserve.
