Sunshine Coast Elder College Spring Course Offerings: National Historic Sites
April 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$35
4 Tuesdays to April 27. Parks Canada looks after more than 160 national historic sites, and there are many more that are owned and operated by other levels and departments of government, and by private companies and individuals. But what is historic? And what is the difference between designation of national significance and provincial or municipal designation? What about controversial historic monuments? Should statues of people who did evil things be removed?
Mike Starr will bring us right up to date, with discussion of the recognition in September, 2020 of Canada’s Residential Schools as an event of national historic significance. The course will include a virtual visit to Fort Langley.
