ShoutOut 150

ShoutOut 150 Storytelling – Sunday May 28 @ 2 p.m. FREE ADMISSION

The WJCC is celebrating 150 years since confederation by hearing the personal stories about Why We Like Being in Canada from community members who include a First Nations Canadian, immigrants from South Asia, Africa and Russia, a holocaust survivor, some first generation Canadians, and anglophone and francophone Canadians, all ranging in age from their teens to their 80’s. “Stories live and breathe at the heart of our culture,” says ShoutOut host and organizer Vanessa Shields. “It’s a gift to be able to host this celebration of stories about our love of home, city, country – to honour a city that is multiculturally rich and bravely honest. I can’t wait to experience this important celebration!” Storytellers include:
