Did you see the big red ship in Howe Sound?
Canada C3 was anchored off Gambier Island this weekend. Participants, including Squamish's Tracey Saxby, met with folks from all around Howe Sound to listen to local stories.
“We went canoeing in the rain to visit key sites, and also got to tour the ship, which was very cool,” said Saxby. Canada C3's journey to Howe Sound is part of Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation. The ship is on a 150-day sailing trip from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage. The goal is to celebrate environment, and share the stories of coastal communities, "connecting Canadians from coast to coast to coast,” reads the project description on its website.
