In collaboration with The Young Canuckstorian Project team and the 340 Griffin Squadron Air Cadets, the BCM&CC presents: Young Canuckstorian – Bruce Remembers, a video project in commemoration of Remembrance Day. 


This project includes six 6-8 minute commemorative video vignettes that highlight the experiences of First World War Bruce County soldiers as reflected in their diaries and letters housed in the BCM&CC Archives, along with the experiences of some of our Nursing Sisters and women on the Home Front.
