Grade 2 students at Sooke elementary school got a short lesson in symbols from RCMP Staff Sgt. Steve Wright, Lion Mike and Constable Jamie on June 13.
Wright talked about the RCMP red serge uniform and its 139 year history and the current Canadian flag which was unveiled in 1965.
Canada becomes 145 years old on July 1 and celebrations will be held at the Sooke Flats. Loggers’ sports, flags, music, concessions, raft races, entertainment and fireworks are all planned for Canada Day.
