I enjoyed the fireworks, it was a big show celebrating our 150th though tempered with thought and empathy for the first Nations people who have been resisting all this time , and rightly so since we stole the land from them, then took the children forcibly from their homes and abused them in the residential schools as the settlers tried to assimilate them . Lots of damage done but they survived and are thriving. An apolog I look forward to the next 150 with renewed relations  focusing on meeting the charters “Calls to Action” on Truth and Reconciliation.

I just had to take a photo of everyone with their cell phones, getting ready for the first start of the show.
