Greasing the Wheels of Change
Since starting their road trip in British Columbia on October 1, 2008, Cloe Whittaker and Tyson Jerry have stopped at many fast-food restaurants. But the pair aren’t breaking for snacks—they’re refuelling their van. Under the name “Driven to Sustain,” the two young environmentalists are driving across each province, territory and state in Canada and the U.S. and then into Mexico in a van powered by vegetable oil. The van can travel 8 km on a litre of this fuel. The couple obtain used oil free from local restaurants, saving hundreds of dollars and carbon emissions. “People behind us say the van smells like barbecue, but to me, it’s not an obvious difference,” Whittaker said. The pair hope to set a world record for the longest journey by car using alternative fuel, with a goal of covering 45 000 kilometres in about six months. The title currently belongs to four Germans, who drove 38 137 kilometres on natural gas two years ago.

Growing up around Georgian Bay inspired Jerry’s respect for nature. He worked as a tree planter while studying environmental management. Whittaker grew up camping in the prairies. She finished her degree in anthropology and environmental studies a year ago. The pair met last summer and realized they shared goals for sustainable living. “We’re not looking to become famous,” Jerry said. “We want to convey the idea that people have a choice. We have this incredible technology [for the car], but really, change has to come from people’s mentalities,” Whittaker said after meeting with the student ecological club at an Ontario high school.

The Six String Nation guitar symbolizes Canadian national unity. Radio host Jowi Taylor came up with the idea for the guitar in 1995. He asked George Rizsanyi, a luthier, to build a guitar from materials representing remarkable people and places, diverse geographic regions and natural wonders of Canada. For over 10 years, the two men gathered 64 pieces of wood, metal and bone to make the instrument. The front piece was made from the wood of a 300-year-old golden spruce tree, honoured by the Haida peoples of British Columbia. Other wood pieces came from the deck of the Bluenose II (a Nova Scotia sailing ship that appears on the Canadian dime) as well as from Paul Henderson’s hockey stick and former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s canoe paddle. The most significant piece for Rizsanyi is an inside strut made from Pier 21. This is the Halifax dock where his family entered Canada. The guitar includes metal from a seat at Montreal’s famous arena, the Forum, and a gold dot from one of Maurice Richard’s Stanley Cup rings. It also contains pieces of the world’s oldest rock, found near Great Bear Lake, NWT, and a moose antler used in First Nations ceremonies. The finished guitar made its musical debut on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on July 1, 2006. Since this first performance, it has been on tour across the nation. Canadian musicians such as Feist, Hawksley Workman and Bruce Cockburn have performed with it. Six String Nation is a powerful representation of all Canadians, connecting people, their stories and their communities.

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test

Canada is a country that champions itself as a world leader in multiculturalism and diversity. Why then does it continue to have a national holiday to honour a British monarch who died 107 years ago while it doesn’t have a single national holiday to honour a Canadian? Canada is almost the last country to mark Victoria Day. Even the British don’t commemorate it. Instead, they celebrate the Queen’s Birthday on a June Saturday, not a weekday. Countries change, as Canada has. Canada started celebrating Victoria’s birthday in 1845, when it was still a British territory. Part of the transformation for Canada has been to drop the notion that we are tied to Britain. True, Queen Elizabeth II is our head of state, but polls indicate just five percent of us know that. Quebec has had several names for the day, and now calls it Patriots’ Day, to commemorate those who struggled for democratic government during the Lower Canada Rebellion of 1837–1838. The United States has Presidents’ Day and Martin Luther King Day. We could have Prime Ministers’ Day, or maybe Jacques Cartier Day or Peacekeepers’ Day. The choices for a new name are endless, but the point is simple: It is time to stop calling the May holiday Victoria Day. We should not get rid of the holiday Monday; everybody loves long weekends. However, we need to rename it for a person or event with more meaning to a modern Canada.
