This day celebrates the union of three British colonies into a single Dominion called Canada. This year is particularly important because it is Canada’s 150 year as a country, congratulations Canada! Now go out celebrate what it means to be part of this wonderfully diverse nation that we are privileged to call our home.
This is a Canadian coin dated 1867-1967 and it celebrates Canada’s 100th birthday.

The glamorous side of an archival rescue mission

Historically, the job of Town Crier was incredibly important to a town. Not everyone had the privilege of being literate; therefore it was important to have someone that was able to keep the population up to date on the news. Today we celebrate the importance of this role. This bell was presented to Coquitlam's own Town Crier, Tony G. Paré.
