Fishing for Friends
by Julia Gibson

We are Canadian citizens and in Canada we show peace. For Canada’s 150th anniversary we created a book with our teacher about Canadian citizenship and reconciliation that featured our art work. Lucas and Peter go to school. At school Peter gets bullied because of his culture. Peter’s culture is First Nations. In the end Dillon, who is the bully, starts talking nicely to Peter. Their Dads know each other. Peter’s family loves to go fishing on the weekends. Peter and Dillon start being nicer to each other and finally get along. We show that being a Canadian is being respectful by not bullying others because that can hurt their feelings. It doesn’t matter what culture a person is from, just respect them and they will do it back to you.

—written by Lana Lynn Comia & Vanessa Santome (grade 4 students, école James Nisbet School)

Dedicated to my boys (Ivan, Sammy & Teddy) who love to fish!
