Discovering history in Canada really is a moving target

Consider, among many, these examples: a seemingly-typical residential Toronto neighborhood with a mystery past of factories, air travel and early automobiles; a patch of land thousands of kilometres from here where tragedy and triumph inter-mingle in fact and memory; a tiny community in our Far North where Inuit people have carved out a living for more than 1,000 years – and created internationally-acclaimed art in the process. Wherever and whatever we find, it’s all there waiting for us – along with the lessons each of those places can teach.
