New Brunswick Students Gather to Celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary

Students from all over New Brunswick gathered at Harbour Station in Saint John to celebrate Canada's 150th  birthday at the "My 150" event.  Twelve students from Blackville School got the opportunity to attend this event.

As one of the students who attended, I thought that it was a great way to celebrate our country and province.  Students from one end of  New Brunswick to the other gathered together to share their ideas on how to make our province a better place. 

There were guest speakers, students and the band Radio Radio, who all got up on stage to share their knowledge, ideas and talents with us.  

New Brunswick is often put down a lot, especially by New Brunswickers themselves, but after attending this conference and hearing all the great things New Brunswick has to offer, my perspective really changed.  

At this event, I learned that New Brunswick is one of the best places to live, and although people see it as a place with no opportunities, that isn't true.  You have to create your own opportunities.  Like guest speaker, Candy Palmater, said "sometimes you have to go get what you need and bring it back home."
