When we talk about people and things from Canada’s past, the conversation can get pretty intense, pretty fast.
In this issue, we give you some ideas about how to decide who and what deserve to be commemorated.
You can also weigh the good and bad about some famous people and events. Would you honour them? If so, how? All over Canada, students like you are taking action. Listen in on one family’s debate about how they remember Louis Riel and learn about three men from Canada’s past whom we see very differently now.
Discover some unusual commemorations in History Mystery, and look around your own community to see who and what is being honoured.
