Melissa Tait is a video journalist at The Globe and Mail. She was recently aboard the icebreaker Polar Prince, which has spent the last 150 days travelling along Canada's three coasts. Here is her first-person account of her time on the ship: 🔺
It’s probably no surprise that four days on board the icebreaker Polar Prince in the coastal waters of British Columbia was filled with rain and angry skies. Canada C3 is an expedition (supported by a grant from Canada 150 funds) that has carried 400 participants along all three of the country's coastlines to meet communities and learn about reconciliation, the environment and Canada's diversity.
🔺
I boarded the ship October 20th for four days along with the new participants on the final leg. We were first introduced to jellyfish and humpback wales in Teakerne Inlet near Desolation Sound, B.C.
🔺
Then to the Tla’amin Nation, who has partnered with the community of Powell River in the Hɛhɛwšɩn Reconciliation Project to carve canoes in traditional canoe-making. The Tla’amin Nation also shared the story of burning the Indian Act in 2016 after signing a modern treaty that gave them self-governance.
🔺
In Howe Sound participants took canoes out into the waters to learn about the beginning of the area’s recovery after years of industrial damage.
🔺
On the fourth day, we sailed into a rainy Vancouver Harbour as the sunrise battled its way through the clouds.

A little video from inside my cabin aboard the Polar Prince for the @canadac3 expedition's Leg 1 where we set sail this evening on the first 10 days from Toronto to Montreal! What a thrill and the ship is filled with some absolutely amazing people. Come down to 375 Queens Quay W. any time today to take a gander at the ship or around 6:00pm for the send-off and musical performances!! Yep I'll sing a song or two for sure! #CanadaC3 #PolarPrince #ShesABeaut!

There are so many Tall Bearded Iris wanting to be on display for the Creswick Garden Lovers Weekend this Saturday and Sunday that we are having trouble keeping up. Today another four join the parade.

They will all be available for sale at Newlyn Antiques & Cottage Garden Nursery in 200mm containers for $15.00 each after our late December ‘dig’.

Last sunday @universityofvictoria for the @canadac3 Finale Conference, had all the feels and was inspired to do a proper Rock’n’roll salute to our Expedition Leader Geoff Green during our presentation representing #canadac3leg3 and the #canadac3 Legacy Fund Team. Thanks @geoffgreensoi for not only being the best presentation partner, but for your vision and leadership of the Canada C3 Expedition. We love you! We salute you and are beyond grateful.
Help us keep the #polarprince icebreaker and the Coast to Coast to Coast stories, lessons and love keep going. . .❤️⚓️🚢🤘🏽

I feel crazy lucky to have been a part of @canadac3—an expedition along Canada’s three coasts in honour of the country’s 150th—while representing @hakaimag. The ship arrived in Victoria, the final stop, yesterday. Celebrations and important legacy discussions around reconciliation, diversity and inclusion, youth engagement, and science and the environment ensued. In between all that I snuck out for a sunset paddle in the inner harbour with a small posse of fabulous people and enjoyed one last look at the Polar Prince.

An honour to stand in the legacy room aboard #polarprince

Welcome to Victoria, Canada C3! End of an epic 150 day journey, well done! #canadac3 #polarprince #victoriaharbourbc

150 days & 23 000 km later, the @canadac3 expedition has arrived in Victoria, completing the journey around all 3 of Canada's coasts. What a beautiful, inspiring, and adventurous journey it has been! Today, we celebrate!

Got to be part of the berthing team for the beautiful Polar Prince (C3) today. We met up with her in the Arctic around Herschel Island and got to tour her and work with the crew for a bit, so it was a welcome reunion in Victoria. In celebration of #canada150 the C3 came alongside after 150 days of sailing, back to her homeport. #polarprince #c3 #navy #welcomehome @tomleb862

Another beauty day at work. Taking a break to see the Canada C3 ice breaker finish its journey around the country. Cooooooool! #polarprince

On a Canada 150 expedition tasked with celebrating "the people and places of Canada's three coasts," The Globe and Mail’s Ian Brown finds himself in the midst of a diverse group forced to confront questions of race and reconciliation both past and present.
🔺
Reconciliation, as many Canadians now know thanks to the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission, is the process of reviving trust between Canada and its Indigenous people after more than a century of cultural genocide – after separating 150,000 Indigenous children from their families to be reprogrammed in Christian residential schools, in some cases as recently as the 1990s. The official purpose of the C3 (coast to coast to coast) expedition was to "celebrate the people and places of Canada's three coasts."
🔺
Over the course of eight days sailing along the coast of Baffin Island, tensions build and break as Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians alike face some of their country's uncomfortable truths.

149 days ago I watched this beauty of a ship leave the Toronto harbour in what was the beginning of a historical journey around all three of Canada's coasts. Sept 10th I joined the expedition for 3 weeks. Tomorrow I'll be there to welcome her to Victoria and to what is the end of the physical expedition but only the beginning of the legacy of this journey! @canadac3

I had the honour of being part of the communication team on Leg 8 with Canada C3 from Qikiqtarjuaq to Pond Inlet, Nunavut with an amazing group of people.  One of my absolute favourite stops was Sam Ford Fjord.  A magical place on this planet.  Congratulations to Canada C3 for finishing their 150 day journey from coast to coast to coast!  #canadac3 #c3 #polarprince #leg8 #canada #canada150 #samfordfjord #nunavut #arctic #glacier #cliffs #ice #mountains #beautiful #nunavut

Polar Prince Canada C3, the icebreaker, stopped over in Ganges harbour... all the way from Toronto through the northwest passage to Victoria to celebrate Canada 150 🇨🇦 If you’re a local you surely would have heard his horn leaving 🤣 #saltspringisland #saltspringlife #saltspringliving #harbour #gangesharbour #canada150 #polarprince #icebreaker

A Great Blue Heron sits nonchalantly in the foreground with the massive C3 Polar Prince ice breaker filling in the background. It is resting in Ganges Harbour after one last tour through the arctic ice as part of the Canada 🇨🇦 150 celebrations.

Saturna Island. Probably the most lively, cohesive, committed community I've ever had the privilege to meet. Humpback whales came by, clearly feeling the same way because their pace was most leisurely. We drank nettle-arbutus-bark tea in the fog alarm building. (Just us. The whales swam on.)

Polar Prince docked in Vancouver today. This is part of the C3 Expedition to celebrate Canada’s 150 and connect Canadians, Coast to Coast! It’s amazing to think this vessel circumnavigated Canada from the Great Lakes passing through the Arctic and heading down through Alaska and the coast of British Columbia. #c3 #canadac3 #polarprince #science #research #canada #canada150 #britishcolumbia #vancouver #arctic #explorecanada #coasttocoasttocoast

Had such a super lesson yesterday. Tomorrow we have another jumping lesson with Jen 😁😁😁❤ #princey #gorgeousboy #handsome #bay #gelding #westernwinter #Polarprince #love #growing #bigandbrave #improving #myboy 😍❤🐴

@canadac3 was one of the #Canada150 signature projects. Sailing from coast to coast to coast over 150 days, Canada C3 aims to connect Canadians with each other, the land, the people who have lived in this land since time immemorial, & our not so great history. The hope is we share this journey and carry the stories back to our homes & communities.

I had the honour of being on this journey in September, sailing from NWT around Alaska to BC. Here's a short clip of the recap - full video on Canada C3's Facebook! #CanadaC3 @canada150
