Paddles Up! Welcome canoe voyagers July 7

Jul 7, 2017

Pulling Together's 2017 journey began in Gibsons on Thursday, July 6 with the traditional Blessing of the 18 long ocean-going canoes carrying over 200 paddlers. The canoes then headed to Sechelt, this year's formal starting point for the annual paddling event that works to bridge cultural and traditional divides between First Nations, RCMP, and schools. Pulling Together began as a way to instill pride in First Nations youth, build friendships and cultural understanding. The canoes will make their first stop on the week-long Pulling Together journey at Gibsons Harbour on Friday, July 7 at approximately 5pm. All are invited to be at the Gibsons Wharf to welcome them and raise their hands in welcome when the paddles go up in salute. To learn more about PULLING TOGETHER go to
