Celebrating culture, recreation and Canadian innovation, federal Liberals doled out more cash for community projects this week to mark the country’s sesquicentennial — 150 years since Confederation.
Calgary Centre MP Kent Hehr, Minister of Veterans Affairs, announced $640,642 for 10 different projects throughout the city to build on the future by respecting the past, like recognizing the contributions of unique Canadians.
“We want to celebrate together through arts, culture and science. It’s the sticky stuff that keeps us together through all the ups and the downs. We want to share our stories and feel connected,” Hehr said at the funding announcement Thursday.
“Diversity is the strength of our country. It’s the fabric of our nation.”
