Is Stephen Harper taking our advice on Pier 21?

Look for our story on the immigration museum in tomorrow's paper

Posted By on Wed, Jun 24, 2009 at 10:34 PM

In tomorrow's paper, Sean Flinn writes about Pier 21's 10th anniversary and its pursuit of national museum status. Already a national heritage site, Pier 21 hosts Stephen Harper tomorrow, and the PM is planning an announcement with premier Dexter at 10:30am. Hopefully this means good news for Canada's immigration museum, putting it on par with five other institutions; most located in Ottawa, including the Museum of Civilization, and Winnipeg's Museum of Human Rights. For the last decade, Pier 21 has worked toward broadening its scope and bringing stories of immigration to Canada to all Canadians. Be sure to read Sean's story tomorrow for background on its efforts, which will be updated with any news from the press conference.
